Wild About Canada Pop-up Adventure Playground | Saturday, 22. April 2017

This is our main Earth Day event!

Show your support for adventure play by bringing your little ones (and your not so little ones) to our “Wild About Canada” POP-UP Adventure Playground. This is a great demonstration of what our EarthPLAY program is all about — giving kids the opportunity to build, create, make-believe, get messy, invent, collaborate and take calculated risks.

This is also a chance to see up-close what an adventure playground looks like, and to better understand why Earth Day Canada is fundraising to bring permanent adventure playgrounds to parks.

Some helpful Adventure Playground tips:

- Our POP-UP Adventure Playgrounds are staffed by Play Rangers. They help observe and manage the play. They do not direct children’s play but can lend a hand when necessary.

-We ask that caregivers sit back, relax, and let their children play on their own. Our Play Rangers are on site to assist with any conflict negotiations or challenges that may arrise. We encourage you to bring a camp chair, blanket and something to read!

- We say YES to all kinds of play, in all kinds of weather! Whether it's with snow, mud or water, kids at our POP-UPs are encouraged to explore with their whole bodies. We recommend participants wear warm, waterproof clothing, or pack a change of clothes.

- Be prepared and plan enough time for your kids to play. Kids who are new to open-ended play often take some time to warm up, but once they get going they won't want to stop! We recommend planning for at least 1 hour or more of uninterrupted play.
