Get cooking with the Friends of Murphys Point on Sunday, March 3 at the park!
The next in the winter/spring series of Super Kids In Parks programs will focus on campfire building and outdoor cooking, which promises to be a yummy way to spend the afternoon. If there is enough snow the group may also explore the art of shelter building, otherwise get set for games.
SKIP is an outdoor learning program at Murphys Point Provincial Park that aims to help kids ages 7 to 10 connect with nature through a range of activities that promote active and healthy living.
While the activity is geared towards 7- to 10-year olds, the whole family can get involved.
“Our campfire and cooking programs are a lot of fun and are led by experienced volunteers,” says Stephanie Gray, Friends’ education committee chairperson. “Everyone gets a neat treat to try to cook outdoors while learning a little something about fire safety and about the park. It’s a sweet time of year – maybe there will be a maple theme!”
The program is slated to take place from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Park Store area, accessed through the main park entrance. Participants should dress for the weather, although a warm shelter (and hot chocolate!) will be available. Be prepared to play in the snow!
Space is limited, so pre-registration is preferred. Children ages 7 to 10 can be dropped off (with a signed permission form) for the program or families can take part. Click here for fees and registration information. Space permitting, registrations may be accepted at the door.
The program is rain or shine, but if it must be cancelled due to severe weather a message will be posted here by 10 a.m. on March 3.
Hope to see you there!
