when 5 August 2024 - 9 August 2024
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 230

Discovering and utilizing their own resources, high resilience and robust physical and mental health are characteristics of children with high natural intelligence. This concept of intelligence differs fundamentally from the usual focus of intelligence measurement and is nevertheless decisive for many life situations in our urban world. In addition to free play, guided thematic projects in forest kindergartens or forest day nurseries can make a valuable contribution to this.
During the excursion, various aspects will be presented and tested using the example topic "Stone Age":
social cooperation through field games
empathy with other creatures through role-playing games
practical skills by making simple tools, clothing and jewelry from natural materials
playful sensory training in nature
connection to nature through storytelling and songs
artistic design on the theme of the Stone Age
iIntegration of nature rituals into role play
The program draws on 17 years of experience in nature education as well as many years of experience as a mentor for Scandinavian Friluftsliv.
