Wild Thyme & EmbersGrow. Explore. Discover.
What do we do?
Wild Thyme & Embers provide a variety of outdoor learning experiences for children and their families in and around Cambridge. Our intention is to inspire people to spend more time outside, reconnect with nature and enjoy the lifelong benefits. Inspired by Skogsmulle principles underlying the Swedish multi-sensory approach to learning and forest schools, we believe that the great outdoors is the most powerful and compelling learning environment for everyone! Amongst other things we run Bushcraft Holiday Clubs and Birthday Parties.
DUE TO ONGOING UNCERTAINTY SURROUNDING CORONAVIRUS, WE HAVE DECIDED NOT TO THE RUN OUR HOLIDAY CLUB AT THE MOMENT. AS THINGS STAND, WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO RUNNING IN 2021.
Once we are up and running again we will update our Holiday Bushcraft Club page which you can find in the drop down ‘Sessions’ tab at the top of the page. We are looking forward to running at the wonderful Wandlebury Country Park and Nature Reserve where we welcome children from age 5 to 12 years old. Children will be dropped off with a packed lunch at 8.30am and collected by 4.00pm at the Stable Rooms. They are welcome to come for as many days as they like where they’ll will be immersed in nature and wild fun!
We are excited to be working with The Heritage School and are thoroughly enjoying delivering bushcraft sessions weekly as part of their enrichment programme.
When we are able to safely run again, we also very much looking forward to providing bushcraft immersion days for schools and other organisations who would like to visit us for a day trip at Wandlebury, as well as annual trips for playgroups and evening sessions for other organisations such as Beavers and Scouts. We also host corporate events and children’s parties so please get in touch if you are interested in arranging a session for your group or family and friends.

Our sessions take place in the woods, rain or shine. Immerse yourself in nature: take part in a full range of bushcraft activities, learn new survival skills, relax in a hammock, share food from the fire and be part of our evolving community!
