Herons

Thursdays | 9:00 am to 3:30 pm | Ages 9-13 yrs

Herons is the program where children engage with all aspects of the natural environment and build confidence and independence through a variety of inquiry-based activities. They explore how different parts of nature work wearing different lenses each day to fulfill their curiosity and develop their understanding. While guiding themselves and their peers through a variety of activities, children dig deeper into why the world is the way it is.

Our days are filled with stories, activities to probe, and games that teach while the focus is to impart hard skills like starting a fire, orienteering, and shelter building to learn self-sufficiency combined with soft skills like listening, and cooperation.  Children learn constantly through identifying flora and fauna, tracking, learning bird language, while developing critical thinking and inquisitive focus.
