Adventures in Nature

Reedy Creek Nature Center

Being active in nature is great way to safely expend all that pent up energy! Send the kids on an outdoor adventure where they can run off some energy while spending a little time with other kids. We might build a fort, or play hide and seek, or investigate a stream or challenge ourselves to a brisk hike or maybe even safely build a fire! The list is endless and the choice is up to the group! Are your kids ready to join the adventure? Must register in advance at http://apm.activecommunities.com/mecklenburgparks/Activity_Search/110677 Ages 6 to 10 Free 3-4:30pm *Masks are required for times that we cannot be six feet apart. They will be provided if needed. Thank you for your understanding. *
