Sweet Summer Solstice Celebration

Sweet, sweet summer is HERE! Everything is lush & green, strawberries are ripe & ready, it’s time to welcome this sweet season!

On Saturday, June 15, bring the whole family to welcome back the SUMMER! We are celebrating the Summer Solstice forest school style – playing, learning & growing in nature!

Everyone is welcome to engage in all of the usual forest and nature school fun – nature play, stories, songs, wandering in the woods, balancing on fallen trees, swinging on rope swings or in hammocks, etc. BUT we will also have some special activities & guests to celebrate SWEET, SWEET SUMMER!

You can expect:

  • sun-themed craftivities;
  • wildflower craftivities;
  • some fun scavenger-hunt type activities to get you exploring the woods;
  • sweet local & foraged treats;
  • and more!

This event is open to all ages, however, please note that our regular programs & site are geared towards children 2-13 years of age. There will be staff on-site to enhance your visit & activity stations set up, but this is a self-guided event.
