About Wyld Thyngz

Our goal is to connect individuals of all ages to the natural world around them in Callington woodland. To find excitement and wonder at it's ever changing seasons, and the abundance of plant life and creatures to be discovered.

We cater for all ages:

  • For the youngest children we offer parent and child sessions,
  • Our Forest School Kindergarten takes unaccompanied children of 3-7 years,
  • Really Wyld Thyngz is our group for home educated children aged 5-11 years,
  • Birthday parties for 7 years and under,
  • Family workshops at festivals
  • A variety of learning opportunities for adults.

We are based in 14 acres of our very own ancient woodland with a mixture of broad leaf and coniferous trees. Shelter is provided by our cozy 'Yurt in the Dirt' with compost toilet and cooking facilities.

Near Callington, Cornwall.



The aim of our woodland workshops is to inspire children to develop a life long love of the natural world, and to open
their eyes to the opportunities it has to offer. Children are encouraged to respect the world around them and
learn woodland skills in an exciting and nurturing environment.
