Do you have a kid who loves nature and exploring outside? Do you have a kid who prefers the indoors, but you want to get them away from screens and playing outside more?

Either way, the NEW Point Au Roche Kids Club is for you! The Kids Club will meet every other Sunday afternoon at different locations in the Park and will have 1.5-2 hours for playing and exploring! We will occasionally have a short outdoor skills lesson or an organized game or activity, but the focus will be on child-led, free play in nature. All ages and abilities welcome!

Face mask required. All ages welcome but most appropriate for ages 3-10.
