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.
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.
Our next Holiday Bushcraft Club at the beautiful Wandlebury Country Park is during half term on Monday 30th & Tuesday 31st May ’22.
Also on the 1st of June we’ll be running at our new venue The Lakes, Twentypence Road, Cottenham, CB24 8PP. To book this venue please select The Lakes option in the dropdown menu on the booking calendar.
We are also running sessions throughout the Summer Holidays starting on Monday 25th July running through to Friday 2nd September ‘22. We welcome children aged 5 to 12 years old; drop them off with a packed lunch at 8.30am at The Stable Rooms and pick them up at 4pm after a day immersed in nature and wild fun!
Rest assured we will continue to honour any sessions booked that children cannot attend due to Covid or any other illness, in future holiday clubs.
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 Brownies 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!
