Re-Connecting with Nature
Re-Connecting with Nature Workshop
This is a one-day, hands-on workshop held mostly outdoors to improve your ability to lead and share an appreciation and understanding of nature with children and youth.
The aim of the Re-Connecting with Nature one-day workshop is to increase and strengthen the number adult leaders in NS who can help children and youth to spend more time appreciating, understanding and acting for the natural world while being physically active in the outdoors. The workshop audience is diverse and includes youth group leaders, recreation and camp staff, teachers, early childhood educators, parents and concerned citizens. It is offered through Hike Nova Scotia in partnership with the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage with support from Acadia University.
Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to…
… understand the value and key concepts in reconnecting children and youth with nature.
… improve their skills in facilitating experiences in nature with others.
… identify valuable ideas, activities and resources for this work.
… have fun and get to know other resourceful people.
… strengthen networks of people committed to reconnecting others with nature.
The cost is $50 ($40 for members of Hike Nova Scotia). A reduced fee of $30 is available for parents not associated with an organization, for volunteer leaders working with youth and students. Registration includes a workshop manual and a one-year individual membership with Hike Nova Scotia (or $10 off other types of memberships). All participants must sign a waiver. Further workshop information will be provided upon registration. Participants are responsible for their own accommodation, meals and transportation.
