child arts and craft

Does your child love playing outdoors and getting back to nature? If so, our Wild Play Days are just the thing. Based out of YMCA Hawker, our Mini  Wilders, 4-7 years, will build shelters, discover nature, create woodland art and breathe Mother Nature’s good stuff, whilst being based out of our new teepee. Our older Forest Adventurers, 7-11 years, will visit a different location each day to explore woods, and enjoy the freedom of outdoor play. If your treasured one loves jumping in puddles, climbing trees and is naturally curious, then this is the camp for them.

On Wednesday’s both Mini Wilders and Forest Adventurers will come together for an adventure further afield where they will explore and create forest themed play in a different location each week.

They won’t come back clean, but they’ll come back happy!

Quality childcare

We have a well-established reputation for providing reliable, flexible, good quality care for children. All YMCA playscheme activities are child led and we try to mix things up as much as possible, introducing new challenges and stimulating activities that will appeal to all personalities, needs and ages.

We treat each child as an individual within a safe, supportive and inclusive environment. All staff are passionate about play opportunities and have been DBS checked. We operate a staff to child ratio of 1:8.
