Dune Trekking 4 kids this Summer!


Looking for something different for the children to do this summer, then this is it. Dune Trekking is a short summer holiday environmental play scheme in Kenfig National Nature Reserve for children between 8 and 12 years old. Over the four days they can expect to build a Survival Camp, do some Pond Dipping, Mini Beast Hunts, a Beach Treasure Hunt and of course, participate in our renown Eco-Olympics.
Children arrive at 10.30am and leave at 3.30pm, but as this is very popular you will need to book in advance (you can also book on one or more days if you want a real break!) Cost is £15 per child per day and please remember to bring a packed lunch and a drink or two! See you at the Dunes then.
