Woodland Warriors

Wickford memorial Park


Woodland Warriors is an outdoor company, that helps children of different age groups and from different backgrounds to learn basic life skills through outdoor play. These sessions ran in conjunction with Takiwatanga are specifically designed for autistic children and those with social anxiety issues.


Throughout the sessions, children will be able to participate in a wide range of activities from balancing and using core muscles on the tree swing, to climbing rope ladders and trees. They will develop problem solving skills, learn about the creatures and their interesting lives in the undergrowth and above the canopy, and there will be opportunities to make tools, craft items, learn how to safely make fire, and identify animal tracks. No two sessions are the same, with different activities each week.
