What is the Ocean and Earth Tribe?
This club is open to all children 0-18 years, but specifically those who are 6 years and older. Each session is 3 hours in length and will have a light focus on a particular skill or topic. The club will rotate between sessions held in our Forest School site in Nambour and our Beach School site at Point Cartwright, Kawana.
You are not required to sign up for every session. Pick the dates and times that suit you!
Price: $40 per child. A 20% discount applies for siblings!
Beach and Forest School are child led sessions that focus on Nature Play with the assistance of Forest School Leaders whose role is to mentor children. We assist with the safe use of tools, making and engineering structures and shelters, exploring the habitat, craft and nature journalling. We create a safe place for children to come together in the great outdoors. We may provide explicit learning opportunities but only if the children are genuinely interested.
Please note: This is not a drop off activity. A parent or guardian must attend.
What to wear:
- Enclosed shoes – aqua shoes or gumboots (or both) are essential. We sweep the sites before each session, however we are always at risk (especially in water courses) of glass, thorns and wildlife bites.
- Long pants
- Hat and sun protection
- Togs and towel for creek and rock pools (we are legally not allowed to swim but can paddle if we deem it safe).
What else to bring:
- A journal or notebook
- Rain gear in wet weather - rain jacket, pants, boots, brolly, little tarp to keep your gear dry (we run in wet weather, so please make sure you as the parent are comfortable too. If you're not enjoying yourself, you won't want to come back!)
- Snacks and water
