Looking for a great year end field trip for your class? For the months of May and June, Nature & You will be operating at the top of Laurentian Ski Hill at the trailhead to the Laurentian Escarpment Conservation Area. This is a perfect setting for programming. We are running the same high quality programs and activities that we bring to schools, using the beautiful natural surroundings of these trails. A full day would consist of a morning program, lunch, and an afternoon program, with some other games and activities usually thrown into the mix. A great program line-up for a Grade 4 class, for example, could be "Under the Surface," followed by "Instincts for Survival." As the programs run outside all day, there are basic amenities in terms of buildings: covered picnic tables for snack and lunch, indoor washrooms, and access to the the indoor "Natural Classroom" in case of a weather emergency.
Our most popular programs for our June Nature Centre program are Bug Hunt, Under the Surface, Art in the Park, and Ecosystem Explorations (forest exploration with mix of sensory activities and games).
