Explorer Days are nature-related outings organized by each club’s volunteer leader(s). Most clubs have Explorer Days once a month. For some Explorer Days, you may build nets and go pond dipping for aquatic insects; on others, you may go explore a local tide pool, learn about mushrooms in a forest, paint, or go bird watching.

Exploring our New Home
We are excited to explore a new location that has been generously offered to our club for use every last Sunday of each month! Our first gathering on this land will be Sunday 27th January from 1pm to 3pm where we will explore the area and discover what it has to offer, what types of trees and plants grow there and what types of animals may be using it as their home. There is also a great space to create a fire pit and large open spaces we can use to run around and play games, as well as a treed area we can explore and build shelters in. We will be running this event rain or shine so don’t forget to dress for the weather:)
Location: The property is on Dumont road opposite Pleasant Valley hall
Explorer Day Etiquette:
- First and foremost: 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 (feel free to fill it out prior to your event!) 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.
- To take part in any Explorer Day, all children must be accompanied by an adult guardian, who are responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
- Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen (if needed!), snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
