Program Considerations

Tofino Nature Kids is a nature immersion program. We spend almost all of our time together outside. Please consider if your child will be comfortable in an outdoor learning environment. Your family must be committed to ensuring your child is suitably dressed and fully prepared for the weather every day. We do have a small covered area for especially soggy or windy times.

Our program only has invisible walls, therefore, our programs are not suitable for children who are prone to uninhibited “wandering”.

Tofino Nature Kids Programs are currently offered in Tofino on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.

“If a child is to keep his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with them the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.”
