Wild Thyme & Embers

Grow. 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!

Our Holiday Clubs are thoroughly enjoyed by children who thrive outside, participating in a variety of bushcraft activities such as fire-lighting, whittling and shelter building. We also host Birthday Parties at a variety of locations.

It’s finally time to resume our sessions! 🙏🏽 To plant a garden is to believe in its future- let the sunshine ☀️ wrap its arms around us again and appreciate the dappled shade the woodland provides… 🌿

Our Holiday Bushcraft Club at the beautiful Wandlebury Country Park and Nature Reserve is back this summer! We welcome children from age 5 to 12 years old- drop them off with a packed lunch at 8.30am at the Stable Rooms and pick them up at 4.00pm after a day immersed in nature and wild fun! Our instructors can’t wait to welcome you back and have lots of new activities planned- they’ve had plenty of time to get creative during lockdown. 🌈

We deliver bushcraft immersion days for schools and other organisations at a variety of locations, annual trips for playgroups and evening sessions for other groups such as Beavers and Scouts. We also host corporate events and children’s parties and enjoy providing nature based arts and craft activities at festivals. 

Please get in touch if you are interested in arranging a session for your group or event. ✨

Thrive in Nature

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!
