Go Wild

Looking for some wild summer activities? Well here in the Yorkshire Dales we have them all through the summer holidays!

Go Wild! Activity Days are a family drop-in in the summer holidays for 5 to 12 year olds. There will be lots of different, exciting activities to get families closer to nature and learning ‘crafty’ ways to discover what is special about the National Park; such as learning about our wonderful wildlife, science exploration, making crafts and, of course, stream dipping – so remember your wellies!

These largely take place in the Malham, Aysgarth and Kirkby Stephen areas.
