December 10, 2017 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 am PST

What better way to get into the holiday spirit than a treasure hunt and hike up Christmas Hill!  Gather with your old NatureKids friends and meet new members (friends & “guest members for the day” are welcome to join). Maybe bring a thermos of hot chocolate and some snacks to reward your little ones for making the climb. For those interested, we will have a scavenger hunt as we climb up to the Garry Oak hilltop and play some nature games up top.
WHEN: Sunday, December 10th, 10 AM to ~ Noon.  (Nature House is open from 12-4 pm if you would like to visit afterwards)
WHERE: Meet at the main Swan Lake parking lot. We will follow a trail that takes us from this parking lot across McKenzie and through a residential area to the Christmas Hill trailhead on Nelthorpe St.

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.
