Now in its 4th year, The Lost Gardens of Heligan once again invite you to join them for a summer ofadventure and outdoor play from 22nd  July – 3rd September, with its Lost Summer event.

Gather your friends and family for a summer adventure like no other and explore den base camp, sit by acamp fire, toast a marshmallow and relax in a hammock beneath the trees. Why not try out the excitingdaily workshops and discover your wild side!

Start your adventure on the Woodland Walk where you can test your balancing skills in the Giants Adventure Trail, before making your way down to East Lawn. Here is where you can really test your skills as you climb, crawl, leap, swing, jump and slide your way around the unique play space, made from trees from around the historic estate.

Grab your friends and family and make your way down to den basecamp and get stuck into den building. Here is where the children are the architects and the grown-ups are the helpers for the day, and you discover who’s got the best team work to build the den of the day!

In the Heligan ‘Wildside’ you will be able to choose from a variety of daily workshops. Maybe you would like to learn bush craft skills? Watch wild demo’s? Create your own piece of unique wild art? Or join in with their musical story workshops orperhaps try a bit of everything!

New for 2017, join wildlife experts on Wednesday’s to explore and discover our nations beautiful native birds, animals and insects within specially designed workshops.

They will also give you the chance to meet some of Heligan’s rare breed farm animals on Thursday’s and join their farm team on their rounds, where you will learn all about these special animals and the important heritage practices adopted throughout the Estate.

If you have any energy left and are feeling a little more adventurous, you can be a real life Indiana Jones and venture down through the only outdoor subtropical jungle in the UK; where you may even discover a Burmese rope bridge towering high above the canopy of trees!
