Programs: Children in Nature : Activities


Nature Play is “play that is intrinsically motivated, freely chosen, and personally directed” in natural environments (Adapted definition, Hughes 2012).

These "Nature Play" activities are a product of a partnership between the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association and research partners in the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation of the University of Alberta. Let's let children be children and learn to play in nature again!
