Customer Booking & Deposit: 100% of the event cost is payable at time of booking. Monies are non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, please inform GroWild staff a minimum of 24 hours before. We can try to provide an alternative date for a similar workshop where possible but this is at the discretion of the leader/management on site.
GroWild Cancellation: GroWild has the right to cancel any event or activity for health, safety or hygiene reasons. Events will be cancelled by the leader on site if the area being used is deemed unsafe. This includes weather risks; storms and high winds, plus environmental risk such as tree work/risk identification. Where possible, we will offer an alternative date for any events and bookings. GroWild will refund any cancelled events if an alternative date cannot be organised.
Parental responsibility: Safety of all GroWild members is paramount. Your child(ren) remain your responsibility while at any GroWild events and must be supervised throughout. You must accept responsibility for their welfare AT ALL TIMES.
Farm Site / Moving around the site: Your child(ren) remain your responsibility whilst on the farm site including, but not limited to; use of the carpark, toilet facilities, PYO areas, pathways and journeying to and from the GroWild woodland site. You are expected to be aware of; other members of the public using the site, machinery, trips, hazards/risk. We are situated on a working farm and all areas must be treated with caution and respect.
Boundaries: It is VITAL you and your child(ren) remain within the boundaries and perimeters of the woodland site as directed by the GroWild leader. These will be marked and discussed at the beginning of every event. Clients who wander past these boundaries do so at their own risk - the environment here may not have been surveyed/managed.
Allergies: Any allergies must be notified to GroWild immediately at the time of booking. We cannot be responsible for reactions/allergies to materials we use if misinformed. Allergies might include nuts, egg, wheat, gluten, latex, plant and insect allergies including bee stings. We use non-toxic, child friendly, age stage appropriate materials at all times. Medical information for you and your child(ren) must be up to date and notified to the GroWild leader on site where applicable.
Additional Needs: Any additional/learning needs must be notified to GroWild BEFORE an event. This is to ensure we provide children with the best learning opportunities and provide correct staffing ratios. Failure to do so may result in a cancelled booking on the day of the event.
Ticks & Bugs: There are ticks and bugs in the woodland all year round. Please ensure you have provided adequate clothing plus insect repellant for your child(ren). We will NOT accept responsibility for bites, ticks or stings on you or your child(ren) when out in the woodland. This is a natural occurrence of being in a woodland/outdoor space.

Tool/Fire use: GroWild workshops will involve bushcraft, campfire cooking, tool use, crafts and more – all of which come with an element of risk. Staff at GroWild regularly review all aspects of health, safety and risk on site and have taken all reasonable practical steps to mitigate these risks. All equipment and activities have been risk assessed and we run a daily check on site. If, in the sole opinion of the event/activity leader behaviour of others is deemed unsafe, you will not be allowed to take part in any or whole of the session and will be asked to leave the site. We reserve the right to refuse any use of tools, fire and materials that may pose a risk to others.
