Who We Are

Our Story

Kids Gone Wild is a family run business, started by Lauren and Rob. We are based in Livingston and travel throughout Central Scotland delivering outdoor learning and nature play sessions to schools, groups and families.

Our goal is to normalise outdoor and “risky” play and help children to reconnect and respect nature through outdoor learning.

We tackle current social issues amongst young people including reducing screen time, helping families to become more physically active together and improving mental health.

We truly believe that this is a grass roots solution, by guiding children through play outdoors, they will connect, respect and protect our environment.

Although we deliver sessions throughout all of central Scotland, we focus primarily on urban areas, where we believe our support is needed the most.

We are part of the Children's Activity Association...

What does this mean?

We are parents too and we know the questions you want to know (but don’t always ask) before enrolling our kids into a new activity…
 
  • Are they insured?
  • Have they been PVG checked?
  • How do I guarantee my kids are being instructed by the best?  
Not all activities have a governing body and we felt that this is an important step in reassuring parents, teachers and leaders that we have as high a standard as possible.
 
Being part of the CAA means continuous monitoring and guidance by an independent professional governing body, to bring you that piece of mind.
