At Forest School Summer Camp, adventure and play are the name of the game. Do you have a school-age child who LOVES getting outdoors? Outside time, friendship and fun are all something they will find at Forest School Summer Camp. Tykes and Tots is excited to offer a camp program with weekly traditional Forest School practices that will cover the 8 areas of risky play. The 8 areas are great heights, great speed, tool use, play near dangerous elements, rough and tumble play, disappearing, play with impact, and vicarious play. Each week will focus on creating a better connection to the space where we live, play and grow.

Your child will have an exciting week making discoveries, meeting new friends, and having a blast! They will learn and become confident in their exploration of the world. Your campers will have so much to share about what they’ve learned throughout the week. Each week Tykes and Tots aims for camps to be fully outdoors while exploring the urban forests of Saskatoon.

Tykes and Tots Early Learning Centre is a multi-facility childcare organization offering quality care for your kids. They offer licensed early learning (child care) programs, before and after school programs, school-age summer care and Forest School summer camps. These programs provide a safe, fun environment for children to grow and play.
