Galiano Kids’ Nature Campout
July 24 @ 2:00 pm - July 26 @ 12:00 pm
Join us for the Galiano Kids’ Nature Campout on Galiano Island. It’s three days and two nights of fun in nature, for kids aged 9-13. All you need is an attitude set for fun.
We’ll spend the first day setting up tent town and getting to know the lay of the land with the educational game Ecotopia. In the evening, we’ll go for a sunset hike and “campfire”— with snacks. As dark draws near, we’ll have music around the campfire, and then climb into our tents to revel in the cozy cocoons that we set up ourselves. We’ll sleep snug in our tents under a magnificent sky full of stars.
The second day starts with a light breakfast and some very creative stretching. We continue our epic Ecotopia game, and If the day is hot, we must just have to have a water battle.
The rest of the day will be spent preparing for Circus Night. By dusk, the circus will be open for business. There will be as many acts as we can produce, from stand up comedy and skits to dance routines to hula hooping and cartwheeling. We’ll wrap up our evening with some hot apple cider, chips and card playing.
The third and final day will feature “Minute to Win It” games, a good breakfast, and the finale of Ecotopia. Lastly, we’ll say “so long” to new and old friends, and look forward to next year.
Cost: $225 per child
