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!

Latest News...

In order for people to plan ahead we have created a Holiday Bushcraft Club page which you can find under Sessions and we are delighted to be able to run in two different locations- Milton Country Park and Wandlebury Country Park and Nature Reserve. 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!

We have thoroughly enjoyed facilitating bushcraft immersion days for schools and other organisations, as well as annual trips for playgroups and evening sessions for Beavers and Scouts. We are also hosting corporate events and children’s parties so please get in touch if you are interested in any events for your group.
