Pre-teens have been asking for more nature time this summer at Scout Island Nature Centre.
Given this request, activity co-ordinator Jenny Noble says time for eight to 12 year olds will be expanded on Monday to Thursday afternoons, from 1 to 3 p.m. ($10 per session) in addition to their all-day Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. ($20).
Activities include mini-lessons, games and adventures geared toward that age group.
Children ages three to eight can still come to the morning sessions Monday to Friday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. or afternoon sessions Monday to Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. sessions and will have their own activities.
As always, parents need to register beforehand at 250-398-8532 or firstname.lastname@example.org to be sure there is space available.
