Wild Wonder and Wisdom is a Community Interest Company (C.I.C) that seeks to empower young people through outdoor education. Kathy King, the founder of WW&W is an experienced teacher of 18 years and qualified outdoor education facilitator running Forest School sessions since 2007. She has also qualified as an outdoor instructor meaning that WW&W is able to offer indoor wall climbing, cycling, kayaking, canoeing, trail running, sea swimming, snorkelling and SUP as part of our outdoor education provision. We also collaborate with lots of local, like-minded sole traders and social enterprises to bring you a varied menu of activities and sports.
We focus on boosting Emotional Literacy (self-confidence, self-belief, social skills, self-regulation and empathy) and have recently started to concentrate on ‘Momentary Happiness’ where we tune into how the physical activity combined with the natural blue and green spaces we are doing them in affects our mood. We try to capture how ‘excited’, ‘happy’ ‘content’ and ‘relaxed’ we are feeling before, during and after our sessions. We hope that this mindful acknowledgment of how our moods change will start to condition participants to learn what natural spaces and what types of activities improve their mood the most.
Upcoming Crowdfunder with amazing rewards
We are all set to launch a crowdfunding campaign at 4pm on 14th June 2021 to raise funds to help support our Outdoor Adventurers Clubs. We currently run two girls clubs that are run on an ‘pay-as-you-can-afford’ basis, subsidised by our Comic Relief and Groundworks Grant of £1000. We are also piloting a club for 10-13 year old boys and if successful, would like to be able to subsidise this one from September 2021 too. Our crowdfunder ‘stretch target’ will enable this to happen.
Your help to promote and share our crowdfunder will be really valuable in helping us reach our £5000 target.
We have wonderful rewards on offer ranging from Wine Tasting at The Kings Arms, Mevagissey, Limited Edition hand-poured eco candles and voucher codes for a load of Outdoor Sports companies to experiences such as Sunrise SUP sessions, beach yoga and Bushcraft and Camp Cooking sessions in the woods. For those who really want to treat themselves whilst giving back to our community, we are offering our first Active Women’s Retreat of 2021 as a reward for 6 lucky guests.
Please help us to share this crowdfunder so we can support even more young women and girls in the future!
