Children of all ages can go wild this half term with free activities at Somersham Nature Reserve.

There are three activities that young people can take part in and will be led by fully qualified and experienced leaders. 

The activities include:

  • Wild Play on Monday 27 May. Young people can discover the world of beetles, butterflies and other creepy crawlies.
  • Woodland Wonders on Tuesday 28 May. This is a Forest Schools activity that will involve campfire cookery, den creations, mud masterpieces and magic wand making. 
  • Natural Art on Wednesday 29 May. Young people can explore their creativity and imagination working with artists from the Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination show to create "Signs, structures and surprises" from natural materials.

The activities have been arranged by Cambridgeshire County Council, Somersham Parish Council and the Friends of Somersham Nature Reserve working in partnership.

To book a space call Phil Clark on 01223 715686 or email [email protected]. All children must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian for the three activities.

Phil Clark, Community Green Spaces Manager at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: "Natural play is about children exploring and enjoying their natural environment. I think many people will remember the joy of building dens or making camps when they were young. It's this kind of fun we want to capture. The young people who take part will also find out about the animals and plants that live in the nature reserve as well as cooking outdoors and being creative with natural materials. It's a great way to spend half term and enjoy the outdoors so come and see us at Somersham Nature Reserve."
