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!

We publish dates for the current holiday and the following one so places can be booked well in advance. Spring and Summer dates are now available so take a peek and we look forward to welcoming you! Our next holiday sessions run over February half term from Monday 17th- Friday 21st February. There will be sessions everyday at Milton and Mon-Wed at Wandlebury from 08:30-16:00 so drop your children off for a day immersed in nature with plenty of wild fun!

We provide bushcraft immersion days for schools and other organisations who would like to visit us for a day trip at either Milton Country Park or 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.
