Our Ethos

Tide is a space for girls to connect to nature, community, to be curious, play, learn and to take risks in a safe and supportive environment.

Through fun, practical and creative activities it is our aim to build self-esteem, independence, emotional resilience, co-operation, autonomy, motivation and a sense of connection and belonging in nature. Tide sessions will be a space for girls to find their voice in a a non-judgmental, non-directive and inclusive space which is youth led, holistic and experiential.
