Enrichment Days

Our Enrichment Friday program runs bi-weekly throughout the school year and are open to children (ages 8 and up) interested having fun outdoors and learning through Art & Nature Experiences.

Many of our days are spent in the woods, where students are given a chance to develop and deepen their connection with the natural world through projects such as building and cooking over a fire, wood carving, and learning to use wild edible and medicinal plants. We also do handcrafts, play plenty of games, and go on field trips.

Note:  If your child is younger than 8, there are opportunities to join weekly on Thursdays with our Early Elementary Program.  Contact us for details.

HANDS ON FUN

Activities may include candle dipping, working with wool work, making lanterns, singing, planting, nature walks, exploring, bread baking, stories, building, creating instruments, & watercolour painting…to name a few!

WHAT TO BRING

Each day runs like a full school day, so please pack a healthy lunch.  Also, children will need to be dressed for all types of weather and lively outside play as the majority of the day is spent outside. Please be sure to pack extra clothing on wet days and layers, hats, mitts, etc. on colder days.

COST

Cost is $200*/child/term or $400/child for the full year.  Each term has 8-9 full day classes.  This is not a drop-in program since projects will build upon previous sessions.  Full payment schedule details on the 2019-2020-enrichment-registration-form.
