About us

Our holiday activity camps are a convenient, affordable, flexible childcare options as well as being buckets of fun.

Our promise to all parents is that your children will have fun, meet and make new friends, work with amazing leaders and come home happy and tired

As parents, we both understand the need for affordable, flexible childcare, the desire for parents also to ensure that their children, throughout the days of their school holidays, are engaged in adventurous and fun activities, that they are in a safe and secure location, and they are spending the day with the best leaders in the industry.

We set up The Wild Outdoors in 2018 after leaving a hugely successful outdoor education company in England.

Moving our family to the Scottish Borders we knew that after nearly 10 years in outdoor education and childcare we had learned what the keys to running successful activity camps were.

We decided to set up The Wild Outdoors with the promise that everything we did had to have children's well-being at the heart of it.

Our keys to
running successful days are:

• Our activities have to be fun, exciting, engaging and of course safe, and our locations have to be amazing.

• Our staff have to be inspiring leaders that can engage with children and show an absolute passion for working in the outdoors with children.

• Our childcare has to be affordable and flexible

• Our communication with our customers has to go above and beyond the expected standard.

• We must listen to feedback and act upon it, keeping our camps and activities fresh.

Our staff are what make a day at The Wild Outdoors a truly special occasion.

Our staff go through an extensive training programme which once completed gives them the ability to lead all of our activities, but that is only the start of what makes a great leader at The Wild Outdoors.

Our leaders all have a real passion for working in the outdoors and also for working with children.

We only recruit those who have the ability to inspire children, as we know that our leaders will be remembered by your children for ever.

All staff go through an extensive in-house training programme and are members of the PVG scheme.
