Join Hand-In-Hand Cumberland Nature Educator, Heather Thomson, for a dose of “Vitamin N” at Coal Creek Historic Park. Besides having plenty of time for unstructured play, we will also create art, sing, storytell, play games, do experiments and investigate whatever natural curiosoties the group discovers! Forest Buds is designed to connect children aged 5-9 with nature through child-led exploration of a variety of sites, including woods, streams, meadows and ponds. Our rainforest environment provides limitless opportunities to build relationships with the land and with friends. This 11-week program is uniquely crafted to meet the needs and interests of the group. The program runs exclusively outdoors, rain or shine.

Dates: September 15 – November 26 (Tuesdays and Thursdays)

CAMPBELL RIVER LOCATION

(5 – 9 year old forest friends)

4 year old forest friends must turn 5 years old by December 31st, 2020

While this program will still be child led and play based with plenty of time for their own explorations, there will be opportunities presented throughout the 6 weeks for the children to learn about the basic principles of permaculture and restoration of the land. Our classrooms will become microclimates to study and learn from. We will be planting native species in and around our classrooms and working with the wet weather to create natural water features on the land. Daily journaling will help us keep track of what we learn and what our next plan of action will be. The children will lead their own learning, becoming young stewards of their wild spaces and creating a more intimate, knowledge based relationship with the local flora and fauna.

Dates: October 26 – December 4 (Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and/or Fridays)
Time: 1pm – 4pm
Location: Sportsplex, Campbell River
Cost: Mondays ($135), Tuesdays ($135), Wednesdays ($112.50)
Thursdays ($135) and Fridays ($135)
