GROWE Outdoor School - Winter 2020 - Eagles
About This Event
Enrol now in GROWE Outdoor School coming this Winter in Brant County. Eagles are for 7-11 year old.
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. Started in the Fall of 2019, GROWE offers nature immersion, attribute curriculum children’s programs. The programs will encompass a wide assortment of experiential and inquiry play-based learning. Families are encouraged to enroll their children in GROWE's outdoor nature based school days that will get your wild ones outside and active, as well as generate their curiosity and connection to nature. By offering forest school outdoor educational programming, GROWE is encouraging children and their families to get outside and learn what nature has to offer.

Children in the Eagles level of Outdoor School will come to know themselves, others and nature through nature connections. The program aims to foster curiosity of the natural world that surrounds them by generating inquisitive minds through the art of questioning. Eagles will spend their days connecting through nature songs and stories, sit spots, interactive nature inspired games, gardening, survival techniques and a higher level of identification of flora and fauna. These days spent outdoors will generate curiosity to help them better engage in school. We hope they internalize their experiences on the land which will add to the attributes of their personalities.
