Children today spend increasing amounts of their time engaged in indoor (and often screen-focused) activities. This results in a “nature deficit” for many of our kids who enjoy less time interacting with nature and miss opportunities to benefit from the positive developmental impacts of time spent outdoors in a natural setting.
Offering natural education classes, spring and summer camp offerings, and a nature-based preschool, the new Grō Natural Education Space at Long Park is a truly unique indoor/outdoor learning environment. The greatest education asset of this facility lies in the 230 acres of parkland and 4.5+ miles of trails surrounding the repurposed building, including outdoor classroom and activity areas.
Our Grō programs give children the opportunity to connect with, explore and learn through interaction with the natural world, harnessing the physical, emotional, social and academic benefits associated with outdoor play.
