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! Amongst other things we run Bushcraft Holiday Clubs and Birthday Parties.

It’s finally time to resume our sessions! 🙏🏽 To plant a garden is to believe in its future- let the sunshine ☀️  wrap it’s 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 4.30pm after a day immersed in nature and wild fun! Our wonderful instructors can’t wait you welcome you back and have a few new activities to fuel your wild side- they’ve had plenty of time to get creative during lockdown. 🌈

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.

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!
