About this event

Gather 'round the campfire or in the shade of the trees with other nature-minded educators for a few hours of community-building conversations – this is our Campfire Community Series for educators!

We welcome anyone who considers themselves an "educator" (teacher / professor at any level, RECE / ECE, EA, student in a related program, etc.) and wants to learn more about the Forest and Nature School (FNS) model and how to incorporate it into their teaching/setting.

This event is meant to be a networking gathering that will incite growth & change in your practice, and help shape and plan future forest & nature school events for educators. You can expect:

  • a welcome circle with a chance to learn about the other participants
  • an opportunity to chat with the facilitators of Kingston Forest & Nature School (KFNS)
  • an opportunity to network with other nature-minded educators
  • guided conversations that incite change & growth
