Wild Summer at Eden

Wild Summer at Eden

Overview

Wild Families

Wild Families is taking place at the Eden Project this summer - explore outdoors and enjoy the quiet places and secret spaces of Eden's magical wild estate with your family and friends. Take part in outdoor challenges and crafts followed by a relaxing lunch by the fire. Everyone is welcome and the activities are ideal for children aged up to 14 years.

Taking part costs from £30 per family including refreshments. Bring your own lunch to enjoy round the campfire.

The Fire Carriers
7th and 21st August, 10am - 1pm
Work together as a team to build the skills needed to allow you to work safely with fire. Create light, warmth and food using nature to make yourself comfortable in the Cornish wilds. Learn how to light fires using matches, flint and steel, craft lamps and make charcoal all before baking bread and storytelling around the campfire.

Natural Detectives
14th August, 10am - 1pm
Discover hidden worlds and adventure into Eden's woods, fields and hedgerows, taking notice of what's going on beneath your feet. You'll take part in sensory activities, games and crafts and potentially see the living world and all its beauty in a new way. Afterwards, relax by the campfire with snacks and refreshments.

Wild Wednesdays kids' club

25th July, 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th August, 9.30am - 3.30pm
This kids' club takes place during the summer holidays for children aged 8-12 and is led by the experienced Eden Education Team. Taking place in the Eden Project's unique outdoor learning space, each session includes fun but challenging individual and group activities and there is also time by the fire to relax, craft and cook.

 

There will be physical and practical challenges, creative and craft activities and campfires, plus the opportunity for children to make new friends.

It costs £27 per child for each session, including refreshments.

Little Eden parent and under-fives club
