Kids Club! Get Outside
Feb 24, 2021 - Mar 3, 2021
Registrationwill now we hosted on the Nature Regina site!
Please join Nature Regina, Nature Saskatchewan and SaskOutdoors presenting “Get Outside! Kids Club”.
The Get Outside! Kids Club will happen every Wednesday. Advanced registration is required. We will be repeating the same session at the same location two weeks in a row to accommodate more family groups.
Geared towards children aged 6-12. An adult must attend with children. You must register ALL children attending (even if they are younger than 6).
An outdoor education program where you can learn about science and learn a bit of French as well while participating in hands-on learning activities! Come and safely meet other at home learners including distance, e-school and homeschool learners!
Location for Wednesday, February 24th and Wednesday, March 3rd: Les Sherman Park and Art Gallery of Regina
(we will use Wednesday, March 10th as a backup date in case we have to cancel one of these sessions due to inclement weather)
Please note: the February 24th program will be THE SAME as the March 3rd program. We will visit a new location on Wednesday, March 17th! Please only sign up for one session as we have a tonne of families interested in this program and we want as many as possible to be able to participate.
On February 24th and March 3rd we’ll learn to snowshoe and find some of the 30 bird species that make Regina home during the winter. We'll also explore an art exhibit at the Art Gallery of Regina (inside) by artist Ruth Chambers who has created a series of sculptures of bulbs, plants and flowers from life in clay. We'll view the exhibit and create clay figures and participate in other fun art activities.
Cabela's has provided us with ice fishing tents and heaters plus hand and foot warmers as well as extra outdoor equipment like snow pants, hats, gloves and neck warmers. So, we'll have a great place to stay warm as we have our outdoor adventure!
We consulted with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and will be maintaining group sizes of a maximum of 10 people.
Times: Wednesday, February 24th
10:00 to 11:30
10:30 to noon
11 to 12:30
Times: Wednesday, March 3rd
If you are the parent/guardian of children ages 9 to 12 we would recommend they attend the January 20th session as we will have more advanced activities that day.
Registration is limited to a maximum of 10 people per session and we are having staggered start times to ensure adequate distancing and space.
When registering you must agree to the following: "I will follow the COVID 19 health and safety guidelines which include hand sanitizing as necessary, mandatory masking (even though we are outside) and practicing social distancing of 6 feet. Masks and alcohol based hand sanitizer will be provided by the event organizers. Please bring your own if you have them."
