Heligan Wild Week
25th May - 2nd June
Wild Week returns to Heligan and we invite you all to join us to discover your wild side and enjoy a week of fun outdoor play.* *Grubby knees guaranteed!
Wild Week at The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Saturday 25th May to Sunday 2nd June 2019, from 10:00am to 5:00pm
Begin your journey in the Wild Tribe Yurt.
Choose a tribe and become a frog, a butterfly, a fox or an owl. Join in the fun, paint your own face and make your tribal headdress before taking part in our wild activities.
Test your hunter gatherer skills, become your tribal animal and see whether you can take aim and strike your prey.
A giant outdoor assault course awaits adventurers (big and small) to test your animal instincts: can you fly like an owl through the trees? Leap like a frog? Scrabble through our fox’s den? And balance like a beautiful butterfly?
Feel the beat of your animal tribe!
Join in one of our musical workshops – help create a song and try out a unique Tribal call. At the end of each day join us round our campfire for a Wild Sing-along!
Wind down and chill out by our camp fire and enjoy toasting your own marshmallow.
Learn some simple bush craft skills; try your hand at fire striking and work together with your friends and family to make rope and create your very own tribal wrist band.
Head on down to the wildlife explorer’s area, use your senses to discover more about Heligan’s native Owls, Foxes, Butterflies and Frogs.
At the end of it all relax in one of our hammocks nestled under the trees and tune into the sounds of nature!
