Outdoor Program Ideas

We proudly offer customised programs to build around your child’s preferred theme (within reasonable limitations!), but here are some ideas to get you started:

Wild About Wetlands

Come explore the wildlife at Beaver Lake, one of the most beautiful natural spaces in Vancouver. Roll up your sleeves and explore Beaver Lake wildlife up close with dip nets, magnifiers and games.

Guided by skilled leaders, children are guaranteed to get Wild about Wetlands.  

Download the detailed  Wild About Wetlands Leader Information package for more info.

Fun in the Forest

Discover the hidden secrets and stories of the forest in this sensory journey through nature. Transform into a forest creature, use magnifiers and look for tiny life forms, play games and have fun in Stanley Park.  

Guided by skilled leaders, children are guaranteed to have Fun in the Forest (and we’ll sneak in some fun facts, too – shhh, don’t tell the kids).
