Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity filling up

"Walkshops" and workshops provide hands-on opportunities to learn strategies and techniques for connecting urban children to nature.

In the past, children and adults would spend several hours each week outdoors. This is no longer the case. The lure of technology and television, combined with longer work hours and busier schedules has created a problem. The CHANGE Adventure Camp was created to re-connect families with nature and each other through a range of outdoor adventure activities. During this highly interactive session, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the best of a CHANGE Adventure. Results of the evaluation and resources will be shared. Come outside and find your adventure!

Max Capacity: 25
