Calling all teachers and parents of grade 4-7 students: spots are filling up for ‘Nature Ninjas Urban Camping’! Close to 500 students camp in Stanley Park each spring and we hope 2015 will be no different.
We all know, intuitively and academically, that time in nature is good for kids (and adults!). Nature Ninjas Urban Camping is an incredible experience for young people to build bonds with the natural world. Where else do you get to see young people hug trees, search for forest critters, quietly sneak up on beavers, and gaze in awe at the tentacles of a banana slug? One teacher who came in 2014 said “This is the HIGHLIGHT of our year! I can’t thank you enough for this amazing, life shaping experience for my students and myself.”
