Gecko’s co-founder Huw Roberts said, “The kids loved being there and so easily connected with nature. This type of stuff just can’t be learnt within the four walls of a classroom. The kids amused themselves for hours
in the woods with sticks and making up their own games using materials from the environment. The imagination, creativity, collaboration and communication that took place really was quite impressive.”
