About this event

  • 3 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

Bring the whole family to enjoy a few hours of self-guided family forest & nature play at Kingston Forest & Nature School. This is a great opportunity to visit our space & meet our facilitators in time to register for our Spring 2023 Session!

Depending on the weather, you can expect to wander in along our trail to The Clearing, explore the yurt, warm hands by the fire, bake snow or mud creations in the mud kitchen, test squirrels skills on the fallen logs, swing on ropes at the forest kitchen, hike the ever-changing trails, watch birds at the feeder, laze in a hammock, see what’s happening in the woods. The choice is yours when you attend a family forest & nature play session!

Registration for our regular weekly programs opens on January 21, and our Spring 2023 Session runs from March 6 until June 19. This drop-in program is perfectly timed for your family to tour our space, meet our incredible facilitators, ask all of your questions, and get a small taste of what a day at Kingston Forest & Nature School is like, in time to join us for 14 incredible weeks in the woods!

This event is open to all ages, however, please note that our regular programs & site are geared towards children 2-13 years of age. There will be staff on-site to enhance your visit, but there will not be any scheduled programming or activities as this is a self-guided event.

In order to keep this event financially accessible, we are offering tickets on a by donation/pay-what-you-can basis. All proceeds from these events pay for staffing of the events & help KFNS to support more children in the outdoors. Suggested donation of $10 per family member. Only one ticket needed per family.
