Session I: Saturdays, Jan. 5 – Feb. 2
Many of us have seen how nature delights children, which is why nature is the cornerstone of this intensive five-week program designed to facilitate the physical, cognitive, and social/emotional benefits for children harnessed by nature.
The forest is full of unexpected and often dramatically beautiful settings in all seasons. Wintertime is particularly magical. Your child (ages 4 – 7) will engage all their senses to explore and discover the full array of nature’s winter delights in the Arboretum’s Working Woods, such as fort building, animal tracking, and free play. So, bundle up and come out and play! This program is led by Audrey Elszasz, an early childhood educator and outdoor education specialist, along with Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalists.
Appropriate winter gear is required! Participants will be outdoors for the full two hours, so proper layering from head to toe is essential. Drop off and pick up at Working Woods.
