Wild Days Out

Wild Days Out

 

We use our extensive range of habitats and wildlife to give children a WILD time and help them gain a deeper understanding of the natural world. Our interactive sessions use a variety of approaches such as games, trails, crafts and guided exploration. Most activities take place outdoors, with indoor options available for inclement weather.

 

To make the most of your day it is best if you can spend at least four hours at Carymoor.

Taking Shelter: All creatures need a safe place to sleep and rear their young: We think about where the wild animals at Carymoor take shelter, visit our replica Iron Age Round-House for some tips on building with natural materials and then construct some shelters of our own using willow grown on site- will they survive our watering-can rainstorm?!

 

*A Carymoor Craft: Use some natural materials to make a special reminder of your visit to Carymoor. *Please note that for Carymoor Crafts sessions there is an additional charge for materials and preparation of between £30-£60.  Please see pricing page for full details.

 

  • Please let us know if you’d prefer your class to make willow dragonflies/butterflies OR clay creatures

 

Buzzy Bees.   During the second half of Summer Term you can visit our observational bee hive for a closer look at the fascinating life of a honey bee.
