Forest Play Group

Forest Play Group

Forest Play Groups are weekly outdoor adventure play groups built around the same core concepts you find behind all of our free Parent Education programs. Gather with other grownups who welcome you by name while your child delights in jumping, climbing, finding, tugging, digging, balancing, sharing, tossing, gathering, planning; always surrounded by nature’s sensory delights: the crunch of leaves, the smell of a pine grove, the feeling of a gooey mud puddle, the chatter of the birds, the lure of the woods in Autumn.

In Forest Play Groups, adults and children embrace rain, snow, sunshine, wind, and mud (definitely mud!). We’ll gather each week with weather appropriate clothing (some clothing to protect you and your child from moisture and cold may be provided). Space in our fall cohorts is limited: please register now!

Forest Play Groups are planned to minimize Covid-19 risks: activities are always outdoors and adults are required to wear masks at all times and to observe 6 foot distances.
