ONLINE FOREST SCHOOL

ONLINE FOREST SCHOOL

DATES: June 2 - June 25 ( Dates & Times vary)

AGES: 5-7, 8-10, and 11-13  

We could all use some time outside right now...especially our kids! During these unprecedented times, CNC has adapted its innovative Forest School model to accommodate online learning and is opening up special sessions for students who are not currently enrolled.

 

What is Forest School about?

Forest School recognizes the intrinsic relationship between children and nature and nurtures this relationship through unstructured play, curiosity-driven learning, hands-on projects, and basic outdoor skills development. The goal of these programs is to encourage students to explore their backyard landscape. Each online session will be led by a trained Forest School Guide. Students will meet as a group at the start of each session to receive missions and challenges that will require them to go outside and explore their backyard or local park. Upon completion of the missions, students come back in to share their work and discoveries.

 

REGISTRATION FEES: 
Cost per child: $4 per class or $15 for all 4 sessions
