COVID-19 modifications for 2020-2021 Children’s Programs

Evergreen is operating in-person Children’s Programs with health and safety protocols in place. For details related to each specific program, see the Program Handbook below or call us at 416-596-1495 ext. 252.

This active outdoor program is designed to inspire and challenge young adventurers in a safe and inclusive setting. Experienced mentors work to build confidence and support participants in taking heathy risks, collaborating with peers and developing lasting relationships between each other and the natural world.

Activities are designed to cultivate local ecological literacy through lived experience and to support a culture of gratitude and nature connection. With a focus on wellness and wandering, this program aims to explore waterways and urban wilds with all the senses, teaching skills via land-based learning and weaving compelling place-based narratives into programming with storytelling, movement and song.

Participants can expect to run, jump, hide, seek, balance and swing. They will learn to craft with natural materials, all the while being part of community of learners dedicated to friendship and above all else, having fun!
