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.
