Cypress Homeschool Council Day Hike/Exploration
This event will be set up similar to Free Forest School if you are familiar with their group.
We will meet out front of the park at 10am while everyone arrives. Please be there between 10:00-10:10 or message me if you are running late.
Once everyone has arrived, we will head to base camp and cover some nature hike rules. Depending on the group size, we may split up into smaller groups.
After our hike, we will set a time to meet back up at base camp for a craft/activity/or nature lesson.
These will not be strenuous or fast paced hikes. I have a 7 year old, 5 year old, 3 year old and 4 months old. We will go at an exploring pace allowing the children to choose where they want to explore.
The Free Forest School model is to let the children explore places that interest them and take the lead. The goal for the parents is to observe and let their children take appropriate risks so they can learn from experience (climb trees, go off the path, build a fort, play in the mud etc...). Obviously please step in if you see a need (life/death/serious injury situation).
What to bring: : - Plenty of water, especially on warmer days - A blanket to sit on when we are at base camp - Bug spray or sunscreen (Optional) - Snacks for your own children (we will not provide or have a shared snack) - Long pants and/or long sleeves SKIP the stroller at most parks. I'll post if the location is stroller friendly or not. I'll be baby wearing the majority of the time.
I'll post updates in the group as it gets closer to the event.
