Our new Cambridge Outdoors Project mission to get kids outside

 

Our mission is to show that it’s great to be outside all day even if (or especially when) it’s wet and muddy!

 

My name is Jonny and I live in Royston (a village just outside of Cambridge) with my wife and two children, age five and seven. I have a background in science, but I have always wanted to work outdoors. There is something very grounding about being outside, for both adults and children, whether it’s exploring the mountains or countryside, wild swimming, or just working in the garden or playing in the park. 

On a recent walk in the woods near my house I had the idea of starting an outdoor kids’ club. There are lots of sports and activity clubs in the area but nothing quite along these lines. I've worked with children, sports coaching locally, but also know that many kids simply do not get on with traditional sports. I wanted to offer families in Royston something new, which was inclusive of all kids. 

I hope that by starting The Outdoors Project - Cambridge & Royston I'll be creating a valuable resource for children and parents, for childcare, but also simply a break in their holidays or school term away from the pressures of mordern life. No screens. Just outdoors fun! The need for childcare and children’s activities is ever-present and these inspiring and engaging clubs, which kids will love and want to come back to again and again, will give hard-working parents the chance to manage work and family time and perhaps even have a day to themselves from time to time! Our mission is to show that it’s great to be outside all day even if (or especially when) it’s wet and muddy!

See The Outdoors Project - Cambridge & Royston booking page for more details of the clubs we offer. 

 

With my PhD in Chemistry I hope to sneak in some science into my clubs. Here’s me testing a bottle rocket!
