When children spend time in nature they develop a strong connection to their environment. Did you know that time spent in nature can also offer many health benefits to a child? Social, emotional and physical benefits have all been linked to time spent in nature. Do you know someone grades 1-5 that has an interest in nature? Would you like to see a healthy outdoor glow in that child's smile? Then NATURE PLAY is for them!
Spring 2017 Nature Play:
The Community Services Division would like to welcome participants to join our Nature Play program. Each week, we meet at the Lt. Colonel Clifton Centre before heading outdoors to take part in nature themed activities along the Chinook Parkway.
This 5 week program is open for children in Grades 1-5 years and runs on Saturday mornings from 10am-12pm. The program will begin on May 27th and run until June 24th
Each week participants will meet and return to the Lt. Colonel Clifton Centre Lower Lounge (6th Ave NE). In the event of inclement weather, the program will continue out of the lower lounge at Lt. Col. Clifton Centre.
Please ensure that your child comes equipped with appropriate clothing for all weather conditions as we will be outdoors with little access to shelter most of the time. Children will likely get dirty with activities and may get cold or wet too.
Clothing Recommendations: Shoes for walking, Rubber Boots, Coat (can be waterproof), Hat and gloves.
It would be also beneficial to bring a water bottle too.
Please return your completed registration form to City Hall or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 8th, 2017.
Places are limited and registrations will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Recreation Coordinator, Kelly Schafer at (306) 778- 2787 or email email@example.com
