Sessions run in half termly blocks usually 6 weeks and cost £25 per session. To allow for some progression we only take bookings for full half terms and do not offer single sessions.

The group is aimed at children between 6 and 11 years old.

Babies are always welcome but due to exposed tree roots and boggy conditions off-road sturdy pushchairs or slings/ carriers are a must. When babies are old enough to get involved they are welcome to join our Play wild group which is aged at children between 1 to 5 years old.

Children remain the responsibility of their accompanying adult/s throughout the sessions and to ensure the safety of all children we advise a ratio of one accompanying adult to three children

We would prefer if you left your mobile phones and cameras in your bags for the duration of the sessions for not only safeguarding reasons but also we feel that sometimes it is nice to have a break from all that technology!

The maximum group size is 12 children. If sessions are full we will put you on a waiting list and you will be contacted if there are any cancellations.

We offer a 25% sibling discount. Childminder discounts of 10% off are also available.

These sessions are designed around a programme of multiple dates therefore if you are unable to attend a session due to illness or holidays etc refunds and transfers do not apply.

If in the unlikely event that a session is cancelled by Wildwood Devon due to a circumstance outside our control such as extreme weather conditions or the park is forced to close for whatever reason we will endeavour to transfer your booking to another convenient date for both parties.

If you decide to cancel your booking we ask that a minimum of 2 weeks notice is required to receive a full refund.
