Explore the outdoors after school this spring!

We are passionate about supporting children’s discovery of the awe and wonder of the natural world, deepening their love and knowledge of their place, and helping them to be more confident outdoors.

Who: Our after school program is designed for children from Grades K-7. There are only 12 spaces available. They will be split into two smaller groups to engage in outdoor learning, team building, leadership and fun together.

What:

  • Team building and leadership
  • Amphibian pond surveys
  • Native tree and plant identification
  • Planting seeds and seedlings
  • Making a forest feast with wild edibles
  • Baking flatbread in our cob oven

When: After school from 3pm – 4:30pm on Tuesdays for 12 weeks (April 6 – June 22)*

*Please take note that a minimum of six participants must be signed up for each day so that the program can be run effectively. We may be in touch with you to switch days if the day has too small a cohort.

Where: All programming will take place at A Rocha Brooksdale: 1620 192 St, Surrey, BC V3Z 9V2. The kids will explore our farm, river, wetland and forest habitats here at Brooksdale.

Why: Kids will have a fully outdoor, fun and safe opportunity to make friends in a small group with very experienced teachers/leaders. Some learning outcomes include:

  • Leadership and teamwork
  • Confidence and comfort in the outdoors
  • Curiosity and wonder in nature
  • Deepen appreciation of indigenous knowledge
  • Joy and excitement through fun and adventure
  • Deeper connections to nature, self and others
