WILD PLAY for Families - Campfire Club

  • Sat 28 Jul 2018
    10.00 am - 12.00 pm
  • Sat 25 Aug 2018
    10.00 am - 12.00 pm

Our winter sessions are focussed on all things fire, and participants will learn about how fire can be used in the bush, and how to interact safely in this environment. The sessions help to teach parents how to make the most of the outside world and Wild play experience including:

  • Introduction to Wild Play, benefits and outcomes for nature based children and families
  • Managing safety whilst encouraging challenge and adventure
  • Enhancing and enabling curiosity, creativity and imagination in the outdoors
  • Understanding nature (plant, animal ID and some basic natural history)

There is a compelling and growing research argument that in a technologically changing world, children need play in nature now more than ever. However, this can be a daunting and challenging experience for parents and carers if they are unsure of how to manage their children who want to explore, take risks and be challenged in a natural learning environment.

The natural world is scientifically proven to be good for a child’s physical, academic and social development. But knowing where to start can be daunting. If you want to get your kids outside and embracing all that nature has to offer then join our Wild Play for Families workshop.

If you wish to get your child outside but aren’t quite sure how to negotiate a nature play experience, this is the workshop for you

Please note: In case bush fire ratings are above low, we are not allowed to light fires and will change the content of the program to shelter building, outdoor challenges, and free play.
