Tiny Ikes (T’Ikes) Program
Does outdoor play make kids smarter? We know that outdoor play improves kids' physical health. All that fresh air and exercise – what's not to like? The truth is, there actually may be more to like. Outdoor play is increasingly linked scientifically to stronger mental muscle. Read more in this article from the San Jose Mercury News.
Encourage your children to love the outdoors and they’ll love it for life – and lead a healthier lifestyle. Join the Izaak Walton League for a program celebrating the wonders of nature.
This program has been designed specially for children ages 2-5. Children must be accompanied by an adult for each program – it’s an experience you’ll treasure together.
Just listen to what a few of our T'Ikes are saying about our program:
- "There sure is a lot of nature out here!"
- "Nature is awesome!"
- "Yea, we get to go outside and explore!"
- "It's Nature Lady….we love you!"
- "Being outside is cool!"
Classes in Gaithersburg, Maryland, will resume in spring 2014. For more information, contact Rebecca Wadler-Lase at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in starting your own Tiny Ikes program, contact Rebecca for program details.
We are also hosting a Tiny Ikes Adventure Camp in summer 2014; details under the link.
