Wild Night Out inspires adventure in everyone and gives disadvantaged young people a chance to do the same. Get involved today!
Adventure makes us happier and healthier, it teaches us to take challenges, to appreciate our wild places and each other and gives us moments of real joy. Wild Night Out is about getting outside, having fun and making a difference - and its open to everyone
As a family we prioritise spending time together in the outdoors. Why? Because it makes us feel happy and it gets us close to the natural world, and brings us closer together. Spending time in the outdoors should be an important part of every child’s life. Wild Night Out 2016 is a fantastic initiative that will bring children into the outdoors and the outdoors into children’s lives; we are proud to be part of it.
Being outdoors is so important. People are forgetting how to build fires, climb trees, tie knots. If we don’t get kids outside, lots of skills will be lost
In hindsight, none of my most treasured memories happened when I was sat in front of a screen. Wild Night Out is a fantastic initiative that reminds us all that adventure in the great outdoors (or even in a field just down the road) is a vital ingredient in a life well lived, and it’s also a chance to support some incredibly important charities
I am hugely excited about Wild Night Out. It can sometimes be difficult to take time for adventure but now there is no excuse! Whether your plans are big or small, the laughs, stories (and perhaps epic mishaps!) from this one night will be something you remember and share for a long time to come. Not to be missed!
I believe that we are all explorers at heart - it’s part of the human condition. The competitiveness of sport isn’t for everyone, but going wild is something that every child can do. By climbing trees and building dens, you become master of your own destiny: you can be an architect, thinker, inventor. You co-operate, you collaborate. As a child, that’s incredibly empowering.
I’m delighted to see Wild Night Out supporting the effort to teach children to learn to appreciate and conserve our wild places, and have fun as well!
I am all for sleeping outside at any opportunity and all for helping others enjoy the outdoors. Wild Night Out is a perfect way to do both: I’m stoked to be involved!
I want people to understand you can have an adventure anywhere and an adventure is simply just learning or experiencing something new
I am so psyched to be involved with Wild Night Out. It combines two of my passions: sleeping in the wilderness and helping young people to get outside. My wild camping adventures have helped boost my confidence, and I know that getting kids outdoors is key to helping them believe in themselves
A happy childhood is, without a doubt, one filled with mud, leaves, trees and wide open spaces. I fear that our beautiful natural playgrounds are getting forgotten somewhere between Snapchat and Instagram. Wild Night Out is a fantastic way to encourage the younger generation to connect with, explore and appreciate the great outdoors. Whether you’re an actual kid or one of those grown ups with a mortgage, get behind this and get wild!
I’m a massive fan of the Wild Night Out project. It’s a great idea to help get disadvantaged children out into the wilds for an adventure - an opportunity they might not otherwise get. Helping them to discover for themselves the magic & power that’s to be found in adventure! So lend your support to Wild Night Out and lets make sure it becomes an annual event
Taking kids on adventures is a great thing. And they don’t have to be difficult or scary to be memorable. I remember when I was small we used to camp in the garden. It was such a huge adventure to me at the time and made such fond memories
Being outside and learning to appreciate, respect and enjoy the world around us is such an important part of childhood. Wild Night Out is doing exactly the right thing in providing encouragement and a platform to get outdoors. I’m really looking forward to seeing the results!
The freedom as a child to play outside, in the dirt, get wet and chase curious creatures is where I got my confidence to explore, to try new things, push boundaries and to trust my own judgement. I’m not talking extreme hikes into the wilderness I’m talking about building with sticks and bark, barefoot exploring in rock pools, preparing food for a fire. My parents didn’t need to be experts in survival, they just had to be there, for us to experience it together. Wild Night Out is encouraging more families to get outside and I’d recommend a night out in nature to anyone
Wild Night Out offers us a chance to find a meaningful connection to the great outdoors. Through adventure we can find greater understanding of each other and the world around us. Get involved!
The fact is you only have a very short time with your Troopers. You owe it to both of you to make as many of these days as adventurous and fun as possible!
