About this Nature-Based Training

You can expect a hands-on day of outdoor fun in nature! Presenters share insights and activities based on their work in nature preschools, forest kindergartens, or other nature-based programs. Training is ideal for educators working with children ages 3-6 years old. Light breakfast and lunch are included on Saturday, but bring your canteen for drinks.

ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event. Please dress for the weather, as at least 50% of    this event will take place outdoors, and don't forget your canteen!

Workshop Descriptions

This retreat is packed with topics you will love! You can look forward to sessions discussing risk management, utilizing the LifeWays curriculum model in a nature-based program, and workshops led by local naturalists. 

Full schedule and workshop descriptions coming soon! 


Make a weekend out of it! Fig Tree Inn is within walking distance of The Playgarden, and Element by Marriott is nearby and one block from the beach. There are plenty of AirBnbs nearby as well!
