Nature Kids: April Break Edition

DISCLAIMER: You may have noticed we’ve recently rebranded. Nature Ninjas will now be called Nature Kids. We take our responsibility to live in community with each other seriously. Words and terms matter in our journey to know nature and each other better, and our new program name reflects this journey. We apologize for any harm caused by the former program name, as we strive to create a safe, inclusive, and welcoming space for all.

 

Registration for the April Break session of Nature Kids is now closed.

 

Nature Kids is going virtual!

 

The April Break session is a repeat of our Winter session, and will run from April 12-16, and feature 3 online video sessions (starting at 10am), to help kids aged 6-12 connect with nature and stay active from home. Each session will feature a visit with a guide, and include an at-home activity to complete on your own time. Thanks to the Hamilton Public Library, this session of Nature Kids is completely FREE. 

 

Registration includes all the materials you need for your at-home activities! Nature Ninjas activity kits will be available at EcoHouse for pick up from March 29th to April 9th, from Monday to Friday (excluding holidays) between the hours of 10am and 4pm. When you register, you will be prompted to select a date.
