Sand Castle Extravaganza!

We live in a place with two lakes and lots of sandy beaches. Learn some techniques for sculpting in sand on this Nature Kids’ adventure. We will spend about 30 minutes learning some of the techniques like forming (need buckets) and hand-stacking.

This is a fair-weather event, however be prepared for any weather. Bring buckets, shovels, and other sand castle building equipment. Bring sunscreen, bathing suits, water and a picnic lunch for afterward.

Location: Okanagan Lake, north of Lakawana Park (gives us easier access to washrooms if needed)

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
