The QuestKids After-School program is designed for school-aged wildings from Kindergarten to grade 5.
This 100% outdoor after-school weekly program provides engaging and exciting outdoor learning opportunities and activities for kids up to grade 5. The kids explore nature, engage in structured learning activities, participate in super fun free play and earn badges along the way!
Being in nature adds dimension to children's play. It stimulates all their senses, helping them to develop their creativity, imagination, and physical abilities.
Questkids will engage in hands-on activities that promote scientific inquiry and creativity. Our curriculum is centered around outdoor activities that allow children to explore and interact with their natural surroundings, and incorporates age appropriate BC Curriculum.
We have a variety of outdoor learning activities and objectives, such as a forest sensory engagement, pattern recognition and building, fort building area, and plant identification to name a few.
In addition to exploration, we incorporate structured learning activities that support your child's cognitive, social development and understanding of nature. Our trained instructors lead small-group lessons that focus on topics such as plant and animal identification, environmental conservation, shelter building, nature journaling, survival skills and teamwork skills.
The weekly club meetings are designed to be engaging and age-appropriate, with plenty of opportunities for the kids to ask questions and share their observations.
Our program has ample time for children to engage in unstructured play, where they can use their imagination, develop their social skills, and build physical strength and coordination.
Children from Kindergarten through Grade 5 looking for an adventurous way to spend their afternoons. Looking for a peer group to bond with and multi-age environment to build teamwork and leadership skills.
Children from all schools are welcome to be dropped off. Children from Stoney Creek Community School will meet us on their school campus.
Our badge system consists of a series of learning modules or topics that kids can choose to explore based on their interests.
For each module completed, kids earn a badge that recognizes their mastery of the topic. The badges serve as tangible representations of the skills and knowledge gained through the program and can be displayed on their vest or hat.
Kids can work at their own pace.
The badge system provides a flexible and personalized approach to learning. It provides a sense of accomplishment and recognition for their achievements, which builds self-confidence and motivation to continue learning.
