Junior Naturalist Experiences | Session II

Monday, July 15, 2019 - 9:00am to Friday, July 19, 2019 - 3:00pm

ReWILD your child and transform into a Nature Detective or Nature Explorer when summer arrives! Perfect for those youth 4-9 y/o that love exploring and learning about our natural world, SOLE Junior Naturalist Experiences provide the perfect balance of outdoor free-play and purposeful experiential education lessons to keep youth immersed and engaged in this novel classroom environment while having the opportunity to be creative and explore!

SOLE PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

These unique and intentional programs provide the perfect balance of an outdoor science camp, and free-play allowing participants to explore their creative side while being immersed in their local environs to learn in a fun and engaging manner!  While doing so, these young participants become actual Junior Naturalists SM as they explore, create, and learn!   Each day is “theme-based” allowing participants to experience a well-rounded curriculum which creates a sense of belonging to our natural world.

Evidence-based research has shown the importance of two essential needs that support healthy child development that is underscored in our Junior Naturalist Experience programs:

1) Nature-based immersion.
2) Unstructured time outdoors or what is known as “free-play”.

During this outdoor science, camp youth are immersed in their natural world where they are able to directly experience what they are learning about, allowing them to develop a sound sense of place and an affinity for nature.  In addition, while we provide adequate supervision in all SOLE Experiences these programs purposefully provide unstructured time to explore and create while they interact with peers allowing participants to develop additional interpersonal and critical-thinking skills which reach beyond the norm and serve as a natural bridge to our LEAD Experience summer programs!
