Babies in Backpacks with Kelly Orr
December 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Ages Newborn to 2 years!
Come and explore the great outdoors in a way that your child can get excited about! The third Thursday of every month we will enjoy a hike with your child in a babywearing carrier or follow their pace if they are mobile. There will only be expectations of exploring the world around us, not of a mile mark or speed. Depending on the energy level of the group we will use our bodies to move in nature for 30 minutes, followed by an activity. We will read books about the outdoors, enjoy touch and feel stations, use sand and water bins and more! This will be a year-round program. The goal is to encourage family time outdoors in all seasons. We will still play outside in rain, snow, heat, and cold. Unsafe weather will push us indoors. Plan to get a little dirty, and come with weather appropriate clothing, sunscreen and bug spray as needed. Caretakers must stay for the duration of the program. Please park in the horse trailer parking and meet in the Pollinator Garden.
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., Members: $9.00 per child / per session Non-Members: $13.00 per child / per session. Pre-registration is required by calling 860-567-0857 or register online here: www.whitememorialcc.org. Space is limited. Please inquire about financial aid as needed.
