Wild Week

Discover your wild side and enjoy a week of fun outdoor play.* 

*Grubby knees guaranteed! 

Begin your journey in the Wild Tribe Yurt. Choose a tribe and become a frog, butterfly, fox or owl. Paint your face, make your tribal headdress and wear it with pride!

Become your tribal animal and test your hunter gatherer skills; take aim and strike your prey. Or if you’ve joined the butterfly tribe, pollinate the wildflowers within the target practice games area. 

A giant outdoor assault course awaits all adventurers, big and small, to test their wild animal instincts. Can you fly like an owl through the trees? Scrabble through our fox’s den? Hop like a frog? And balance and flit over our large, outdoor play space like a beautiful butterfly?

Feel the beat of your animal tribe! Join in our musical workshops and help us to create a song or try out a unique tribal call. (Daily 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm).

At the end of each day, wind down and chill out by our campfire with a wild singalong whilst you toast a marshmallow (Daily 3.30pm).

Relax as you learn some simple bush craft skills, try your hand at fire striking and work together with your friends and family to make some rope. Don’t forget to 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. 


All Heligan Wild Week activities are included with your garden entry.
