When kids spend time outside they become healthier in their bodies and minds. Unstructured free play in nature helps develop a child’s imagination, cognitive, reasoning and observation skills, motor skills, physical fitness, and social skills.
Join us as we partner with Summit Land Conservancy for Kids Outdoors. This program is a time for children to gain an understanding of the natural world and have the opportunity to explore the peaks, creeks, and woodlands that make the Kamas Valley beautiful. We’ll travel each week to special places along the Weber River and to the foot of the Uinta Mountains.
There’s time to learn about the land, water, and wildlife that surrounds us. Explore the land to collect beautiful leaves and learn about trees, seeds, berries and grasses. Study tracks and look for other traces of wildlife. Trace the Weber’s water flow and learn its importance to supporting life in the valley. And PLAY! Activities will vary each week to inspire and peak interest in the natural world through art, play and imagination.
