10:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Are you ready to become an Esquimalt ECO Champ? This free, guardian involved, drop-in program runs on Tuesdays from 10:30am - 12:30pm, July 4 - August 15, 2017. It is specifically focused on teaching children to be ecologically focused and aware while providing a fun and inclusive learning environment. We will be learning through hands-on activities, presentations, speakers and sometimes, artistic expression, or just hanging out and learning about the parks in our community. This program is most suitable for 3-7 yr olds.
