This October, Dragon Park in Hull is going wild – with a week long programme of free events from First Step Wild. For half term, we’re running a series of free workshops and community events for children and adults of all ages. 

From clean ups, Wild Walks and planting events, to Wild taster workshops, there really is something for everyone. It’s a great opportunity to come together, make friends and learn some new skills – whilst getting active in the great outdoors. 

It’s also the perfect intro to our Wild Holiday camps – available across Hull and East Yorkshire throughout the holidays.

The Schedule

The Wild Takeover programme runs throughout the October half term, starting on Monday 28th, with something different on every single day. 

All events and workshops are 100% free, with no need to book. All you need to do is to turn up on the day and enjoy yourselves!


  • Park Clean with Games and Prizes (Open to all ages) – 1pm-3pm


  • Wild Rangers Workshop (Ages 6-12) – 1pm-2pm

  • Wild Walkers (All Ages) – 10am – 12pm 

Open to children and adults alike, this is a community walk, which also covers some basic survival and first aid skills. It’s loads of fun for the whole family, and a great opportunity to learn some valuable new skills.

October Half Term Holiday Camps from First Step Wild

In addition to the free events, we’re also running a full programme of half-term holiday camps, in locations across Hull and East Yorkshire. Designed for 6-12 year olds, they will get your children active and outdoors!

With a different programme every day, children will enjoy tracking, trailing, crafts, outdoor games, assault courses, den building and more – it’s the perfect way to keep them occupied and engaged during the school holidays.
