Registration for our winter clubs is now open! Our nature clubs meet regularly throughout each season (yes, even the winter!) to explore the natural wonders of High Park through trail hikes, sensory activities, games, and stewardship opportunities!
Our early years clubs are caregiver-accompanied: a chance to bond with the little ones you care for through nature, and meet other nature-loving families! Please note that the Nature Baby club hikes at an adult pace with babies in carriers, and all other early years clubs walk at a child pace. We still have space in the following early years clubs this winter:
The learning doesn’t have to stop after school or on weekends! Our after school and weekend drop-off clubs are accessible to participants who are already of school age. We still have space in the following drop-off clubs this winter:
Our “At Home in High Park” homeschooling clubs get participants to explore High Park's wilderness through inquiry and play! Caregivers may choose to drop off club participants, or join us. Participants also receive extended learning packages via email so the learning can continue at home. We still have space in the following homeschooling clubs this winter:
We even have a French program for your French or bilingual adventurers! Les écureuils (Saturday, 5-8 years), one of our drop-off weekend clubs, is for kids interested in learning about the wonders of nature in High Park, like to have fun, and either speak French at home or are enrolled in a French program at school.
Nous avons un programme en français pour les enfants qui aiment explorer les merveilles de la nature dans High Park! Les écureuils (samedi cinq à huit ans) est un club créatif et actif pour ceux qui aiment s'amuser. Notre programme en français s'adressent aux enfants qui parlent français (français parler à la maison ou inscrit dans une école en français).
Our clubs aren't only open to kids; adults can join in too! The Urban Naturalists club (Saturday, ages 18+) takes adults on guided hikes on some of the lesser-explored trails in the park. You'll learn about the park's natural history, explore seasonally significant species, and be part of a community of nature enthusiasts!
