MY SUSTAINABLE SUMMER CAMP

MY SUSTAINABLE SUMMER CAMP

Sustainability themed summer Activity for children and families

 

Welcome to My Sustainable Summer camp.

9 live event days over three big summer school holiday weekends.

 

Starting 5th August 2022

Every Friday to Sunday

11 am - 4 pm

Location: 17 & Central, center court area near TK Maxx.

 

Step under the giant tree and come inside the sustainable summer camp, where kids come each weekend and learn how does your garden grown and how to make your home/world a greener one!

 

Kids will enjoy everything from GYO (grow your own) workshops, making their own gardening aprons/water bottles and sustainable interactive story-times. It’s all about going eco and making small changes at home to become greener all round this Summer.
