ACTIVITIES - Kids Camps
Native Place garden is a naturalized landscape that serves as an outdoor classroom for imparting environmental education programs. Our mission is to encourage people of all ages to get outdoors and explore nature and discover a sense of wonder. Our outdoor based programs include exploring trees,
birds and other features in the garden, using fun and engaging activities that offer children delightful and profound experiences of nature. These activities were developed by none other than the popular nature educator, Joseph Cornell, of the Sharing Nature Foundation.
Our experiential activities are designed to invoke curiosity and imagination, and imbibe an enquiring scientific attitude that allows children to apply their knowledge in creative ways. It’s learning disguised in fun activities that creates a sense of wonder and fulfilment.
