Do you have a curious child? A child that loves ADVENTURE, CLIMBING, DIGGING, BUILDING and searching for CLUES? Then this workshop is just for you! Come along and see what our Eco Explorers bush program is all about!
Children will go on an adventure searching for clues that tell us about the animals that live in Westerfolds park. There will be a scavenger hunt and children will search for footprints, burrows, bones, nests, bugs, webs, footprints and even poo! They will learn about life cycles, plants, bugs, wildlife and maybe even spot a kangaroo!
The children will be encouraged to use their bodies through climbing, balancing and explore the bushland with friends. They will also get a chance to build a bush cubby! This is a great activity for encouraging team work, problem-solving, creative thinking as well as learning essential bush skills.
Our workshop facilitator Adam is the founder of Eco Explorers and has been delivering bush programs to families for over two years. He spent his entire childhood living and camping in the bush; climbing mountains, exploring rivers, learning to fish, track, make fires and to simplify… just ‘being’ at one in nature. Adam now hopes to share his childhood & adult experiences with the next generation to inspire a deep connection with nature. He is also a forest school leader and has a background in Outdoor Education.
Ages: 4 – 10 years
*Parents are responsible for their child at all times.
