Description

Recreation Northwest is offering a summer experience-based learning opportunity.

Tuesdays, 10am – 1pm, July 9th – August 20th

Cost: $200 per person

The Parkscriptions program empowers youth to learn the health benefits of time in nature to improve mental health, encourages social engagement within community spaces, and promotes environmental stewardship. The main goal of the program is to improve the health of youth through weekly nature exposure, mindfulness practices, and place-based education. 

Youth will learn how to use their five senses and slow down while in nature, practice right brain-focused exercises to improve creativity, discuss what it means to participate in community and how nature teaches us these skills, learn to identify native plants and invasive species, and most importantly have an opportunity to play! 

The summer program is focused on youth entering grades 6 – 12th grade, and we employ a student-to-staff ratio of 10:1 to ensure a robust learning environment.

We require a minimum of 5 participants for this program to occur. We will reach out to registrants if we are unable to provide the program due to low numbers and will reimburse you.
