Nature School Programs

Lead by Kara, a certified Forest School Leader, Primary Teacher & former Park Ranger!


Bush Birthday Parties Ages 4-14

We will make your child’s party one to rave about!

A few ideas for their special day:

  • whittling - child friendly pocket knives

  • bush craft, weaving

  • camp fire and fire cooking

  • mixing potions, cubby building

This is time for your child and friends to connect outside. We plan time for free, unstructured play as well as nature craft activities. Parents can join in or relax knowing the kids are in safe hands. We can come to your backyard bush!

Prices depend on number of child, activity options and location.
