Templestowe Bush Kids ~ Bush Survival and Navigation

  •  18/04/2023
     9:30 am - 11:30 am

Join us at Westerfolds Park in Templestowe for our Bush Kids school holiday program where your child will be introduced to essential bush survival skills, including how to use a compass and read maps and go on an adventurous bush walk through the park, practicing essential bush skills, playing nature connection games, tracking and learning about our magnificent Australian flora and fauna and how to care for it.

This Bush Kids workshop is run by Emma, a bush kindy facilitator who has a Master of Environment at Melbourne University, specialising in ‘conservation and restoration’.

Our program is based on the leading research from world-renowned and leading Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Angela Hanscom, author of Balanced and Barefoot to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through climbing, balancing, walking and fine motor skills during our craft activities. Research clearly shows that the more time your child spends in nature, the better they are prepared for learning and life skills, both physically and emotionally. As Angela illustrates, “too many of today’s children miss out on the full sensory richness offered beyond the walls of the classroom or home.”

Forest school Melbourne is an all-weather outdoor program so you need to make sure you bring appropriate weather protection and clothing. Our program will only be cancelled in the event of an extreme weather warning; fire, storm, high temperatures and strong wind.

Ages: 4-10 years

*Parents are responsible for their children at all times.
