Go nutty for nature this summer

This summer, sign up your kids to spend part of each day outside enjoying the sun and connecting with nature in some of Campbell River’s parks and green spaces.

The city’s Recreation & Culture Department is offering programs that help inspire children with an active appreciation of nature.

Nutty for Nature  at Haig-Brown House gives children the chance to explore the outdoors, play in the dirt, learn about insects and collect treasures. This program runs August 12-14, for two different age groups.

“The kids really do go nutty for nature!” says program coordinator Kevin Elmore. “Children at this age are extremely curious and love being outside which makes this program perfect!”

Three morning classes will run from 9-11:30 a.m. for preschool children (3-4 years) at $53.

Three afternoon classes will run from 12:30-3:30 p.m. for children 5-7 years old at $60.
