Animal Days Out (C.I.C.) is a not for profit community interest company based in Welling, Kent. ADO has successfully delivered fun, interactive and educational animal handling encounters, workshops and courses to thousands of children, young people and adults across London and the South East. We also offer a range of Bushcraft Survivor workshops and modules as part of our services. Our staff team consists of trained professionals with extensive experience in educating the public, especially children and youth as well as the handling of diverse animal species (70 plus species). We also have bushcraft practitioners and forest school qualified staff who provide fun and interactive sessions on shelter building, fire making and whittling for example.
We run our own preschool nursery, after school clubs, holiday club programs and courses and are accredited with the Children's University as a learning destination, so we are in tune with the KS requirements and entry level qualifications like NCFS and AQA Unit Awards.
We also have an ADO Therapy team with trained and qualified therapists for schools with Special Educational Needs and severe and complex needs provision or PRU. More information can be found at

An Animal Days Out topic can encompass many subject areas within the curriculum and we can focus on specific topics as required or touch on several areas. Please discuss with a member of our team if there is anything in particular you would like to be included in your session.

In warmer months we welcome the opportunity to offer workshops in suitable and safe spaces outdoors as being outside in nature complements the workshops and this is the more natural setting for children and young people to engage with our animals or bushcraft workshops.
All our workshops encourage group discussion and interaction and we invite questions as we come round with the animals appropriate to your workshop.
Please take a look at our range of workshops on our website or alternatively speak to us if you would like a bespoke session to meet your requirements.
