Based on our mandate we offer a number of programs, workshops and activities throughout the year.
Outdoor School in partnership with Enso Forest Farm
Research points to direct exposure to nature as essential for a child's physical and emotional wellbeing. An outdoor school matters to this young generation. Our intimacy with nature on a day to day basis is fading. The outdoors is dissociated from joy, banning much of the play that older people so enjoyed as children. This alienation is coined Nature Deficit Disorder by American journalist Richard Louv . He describes this as a diminishing use of our senses, difficulties with concentration and attention, changing behaviours like bullying with possible profound implications for future generations as well as for the earth itself. Restoring the bond with nature is in everyone's interest, That is what Gamiing's Outdoor School is focusing on..
