Children and nature

I recently read an article entitled, "Want your kids to go to Harvard? Tell 'em to go outside!"

The author, Richard Louv, well-known for his work on nature deficit disorder and his book Last Child in the Woods, presented the case for increasing the time given to children learning in school yards and natural spaces and having time to solve problems and experiment during free play in green spaces.

As the Songkran holidays approach, consider enrolling your student in the Traidhos Activity Camp for a few days. The camp programs are designed to provide campers with the opportunities to spend part of each day playing and exploring in outdoor spaces. The program consists of structured environmental education games helping students to explore issues concerning resources and human impact, the chance to take time to quietly appreciate the life in a natural space, supervised free-play time and group activities designed to foster self-confidence, problem-solving and cooperation. Much of the camp takes place on and around the Traidhos Campus but each week students will travel off-campus to explore a national park or similar.
