Travelling Park Day and JAM trip to The Festival of Fools!
Dawn and Dusk hosted it's first EVER dodge ball tournament, and what a success it was. We split into 4 groups.
- The Dodgeball Kings
- The Scorpions
- The Dodgers
We did a round robin tournament and held a championship game after lunch!
We also played some of our fan faves at the end of the day which included:
Staff vs. Kids
Knock the Pin
Dr. Dodge Ball
Another dodge ball tournament is definitely in Dawn and Dusk's future...
Out first adventure of the 2017 Spring Break took us to Oak Hammock Marsh!
Here we were met by interpreters that guided us through activities all throughout the day. Animal Detectives had us out trekking through the trails looking for clues that animals had been there. We came across scat, paw prints, pellets and nests! We learned about reptiles and amphibians, we learned the difference between the two, we even got to meet and touch a salamander, saw a turtle and Oak Hammocks newest edition to the animal family, a garter snake!
After lunch we learned all about migration and how bats communicate while we played Ecology Games, and finished off our day with exploring the exhibits!
What a marvelous Monday!
Is it just me, or did that cold patch of the end/beginning of the year seem to be never ending?! It kept us cooped up in the centre for far too long. We have officially started our 2017 schedule of EVERYBODY OUT! and we are so pumped. We are starting off slow, but Dawn and Dusk will move all of their programming outdoors Wednesday AM & PM! You can expect all of the wonderful activities Dawn and Dusk has to offer outside on these days!
Enjoy some pictures from our first EVERYBODY OUT! of the year!
Winter Break was a blast! Here are pictures from our adventures.
It took some convincing, but the children even got Deborah down the hill at adrenaline adventures!
It was a blast, it just goes to show that play is for all ages. Thanks to Adrenaline Adventures for providing fun for our entire group!
The creativity of the Dawn and Dusk kids never ceases to amaze the staff. This week was no exception.
Jessica and Kay took a trip to our favorite ECE resource - Arts Junktion - and came across two bundles of 25 small sized cardboard boxes! These boxes have been used to create forts, costumes, walls, targets.
Check out these awesome creations/explorations:
Who would have ever thought we would have an in-service on November 14 and there be no snow! We had a wonderful day outside. We started our day off with free play in our areas, then, we packed up and got on the bus to birds hill. At Birds Hill we enjoyed a hour long wagon ride with beautiful cloudsdale horses arrived back at the group site just in time for lunch. After lunch we enjoyed exploring the trails/forest nearby, group games and stayed warm by the fire.
