Summer Outdoor Safety Series

Virtual Métis Early Learning Camp

 

Summer is here –which means many of us will be venturing outdoors for some fun in the sun!

The Virtual Métis Early Learning Camp will be offering a Summer Outdoor Safety Series for Métis early learners between the ages of three (3) and twelve (12), their siblings, and parents. The camp provides foundational knowledge of outdoor skills, safety, and survival. Children will engage in play-based, hands-on learning and have experience a deeper connection to nature and their environment.

This Summer Outdoor Safety Series has both guided and self-guided features. Registered families attend multiple virtual sessions where they can meet their peers, ask questions and be engaged in meaningful learning discussions.
