GROWE Outdoor School – Strike Coverage – Oct 9-11
About This Event
This fall GROWE is offering nature immersion, attribute curriculum children’s programs. The programs will encompass a wide assortment of experiential and inquiry play-based learning. Children will be immersed in outdoor self-directed play and educational activities all day!
During the school strike, enroll your children in our outdoor nature based school days that will get your wild ones outside, active as well as generate their curiosity and connection to nature. Your little ones will be guided on their adventure by highly qualified passionate leaders that are trained in Wilderness First Aid.
Ages 5-11 years old
Programs run from 9am-4pm. Drop off and pick up from 8:30am-4:30pm
1:8 leader to child ratio
We live in an information rich and connection poor society. Children are consuming information without generating curiosity for learning and connections to themselves, community and nature. The current school system is concentrating on subject curriculum and not attribute curriculum. Outdoor knowledge was once an important part of our everyday living, but has now been misplaced through the generations from lack of education and nature connection. There is a need in our community to add nature connection opportunities to the children’s lives of today. It takes a village to raise a child.
Come fall in love with nature with us while we explore what nature is doing to get ready for winter.
