GROTTO FOREST SCHOOL

AGES JK - Grade 8

The Guelph Grotto is now offering an educational program to supplement online, in-class, and homeschool learning. Our Forest School immerses children in nature, focuses on experiential learning, social development and staying physically and emotionally fit. Through interaction with nature kids will learn and develop socially, foster self-confidence, learn respect for the environment, and enjoy the outdoors in a safe and appropriate way.

 

Forest School will help bring wellness and joy to your child’s day!  Free outdoor exploration builds confidence and lets kids learn at their own pace.  Kids will get the opportunity to immerse in nature with all their senses.  Sensory play is important for children’s development and helps them make sense of their relationship with the world around them.

Each day is a new experience. Kids will learn about local environments through exploration and free-play under the guidance of qualified Career Outdoor Educators. Locations will include green spaces in and around Guelph, and the Guelph Grotto Climbing Gym.

We are excited to bring this opportunity to the Guelph Grotto community! Contact outdoor@guelphgrotto.com with any questions.

Outdoor SUMMER CAMP

AGES 6 - 14

The outdoor camp will explore the Guelph and surrounding community throughout the week to dive straight into nature. Each day is a different location from the last, where kids will get to hike through the forests of the local escarpment in a fun, interactive way while getting to experience rock climbing on escarpment cliffs. Diving into rock climbing, hiking through the forests and trails, and identifying different local species is what this camp does best!

Locations will be added to a calendar, which will be sent via email to the parents one week before, but locations may change up to 6:00PM the night before
