NATURE PROGRAMMES FOR THE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
Nature @ Heart’s Holiday Programme is designed to allow working parents to keep their children safe, active and stimulated during the holidays. Our programmes are educational and fun, with many outdoor activities and interactive nature games. This allows the nature enthusiast child to explore nature and have fun while doing so!
Our holiday programmes are hosted from 09h00 – 15h00 during school holidays at Tygerberg Nature Reserve, Bracken Nature Reserve and Durbanville Nature Reserve (a half day option from 09h00 – 12h30 is also available). The programme is fully catered, with us providing healthy snacks, lunch and refreshments.
The holiday programme is suitable for kids between the ages 6 – 12 years old. A maximum of 30 learners will be booked on the programme with a minimum of 2 facilitators (1 per 15 kids) per day.
