Nature Play Week

Nature Play Week 2024 will run from April 8 – 18th with over 100 nature play events and activities in Victoria for families to participate in! Nature Play Week celebrates initiatives of all shapes and sizes that reconnect kids with nature and the outdoors. Something that we are very passionate about.

At Eco Explorers, we are passionate about nature play for children and families.  We believe that all children have a right to play as it helps them develop into confident, resilient and healthy children. Our vision is to connect families back to nature so that children have a childhood filled with memories and rich outdoor play experiences that they will treasure forever.

We are available to run events for any service, council or organisation for nature play week 2024. Please contact us here and send us a short overview of your event, location and date and we’ll get back to you shortly.

Nature Play Week was developed in 2014 collaboratively by individuals and organisations involved in the Kids in Nature Network. Kids in Nature Network acts to empower, connect and grow a movement of individuals and organisations that gets kids back outside.

Their network is diverse with leaders from health, education, environment, urban planning, outdoor recreation, community, government, business, arts and many other sectors. You can visit Kids In Nature Network here.
