Wildcraft Adventure: The Outdoor Experience for Video Gamers (Wrexham)

November 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Wildcraft Adventure: the outdoor experience for video gamers

We’ve teamed up with the National Trust at Erddig to bring our video game inspired activity days to Wrexham for October half term week. In computer games like Minecraft and Terraria, players have to survive in a hostile environment; build their own house, hunt for their food, search for materials and fend off wandering monsters. Sure, your child can survive in the ‘wilderness’ on the computer screen, but can they do it out in the real woods? In our unique outdoor game kids have to work together, using what they know from video games, to learn outdoor survival skills and earn points along the way.

Playing our ‘Wildcraft Adventure’ game is a fantastic way to get your video game obsessed child out into nature.

Just like in their favourite computer games, kids will be set a number of challenges throughout the day, and all the while be building their dens before ‘night’ falls and the monsters wake up. Players will light their own campfire, ‘mine’ for resources and use sharp axes; all closely supervised by experienced Forest School leaders. There’ll be plenty of time to get creative with play and imagination – of course. This will be a full day of video game inspired activities for kids aged 6-12 years from 10am to 4pm.

We’ll also be enjoying some hot campfire snacks such as sausages and marshmallows. Children should bring their own packed lunch though.

Tickets are just £30 per child and we’re offering discount places of £27.50 for each additional sibling.

Open to children aged between 6 – 12 years. Advance booking is essential – these events have proved REALLY popular.

If you’re wondering what Wildcraft Adventure is all about. Check out our new video above.

Parents don’t stay with their children during this event – but there’s plenty to see at Erddig Hall & Gardens if you want to make a day of it. Our Forest School activity days are all supervised by trained and experienced staff… that’s us. If your child has special needs that you feel would require a parent or guardian to stay with them for the day though, we would advise getting in touch with us in advance of making a booking and we’ll see what we can arrange. We like to be as inclusive as we can.

About the Venue

Erddig lies right on the doorstep of Wrexham town, easily accessible off the A483.

Erddig is home to Grade I listed gardens. Tours are given daily to visitors or you can freely explore the impressive walled garden, now restored to its 18th-century formal design. With rare fruit trees and a National Collection of Ivies, Erddig’s garden is a very special place.

Visitors can learn about its history, design, restoration and conservation. Discover how this magnificent garden is managed today. Then, in your own time, revisit your favourite parts, or just sit and relax.

Explore a much-loved home, garden and 1,200-acre estate filled with the stories of a family and their servants. Discover life above and below stairs in a unique family home that’s captured the way of life of a bustling household during the early years of the last century.
