Teddy Bears Picnic

picnic rugs with teddy bears arranged on a paved area surrounded by rainforest and large mossy rocks

Our kindergarten students were lucky enough to participate in the Teddy Bears Picnic at Mount Keira Scout Camp today! Steve and Nikki were absolutely incredible with our kids who were completely beside themselves with excitement. The day was all about learning what animals need to survive in the forest, and included all sorts of hands on games and activities and then a beautiful walk through the rainforest. Our kids not only got a day in the fresh air, but learnt resilience, empathy for our environment and the joy of being outside. When we came back and our teddies had disappeared to go and have a picnic and we had to follow clues to find them, the kids (and us teachers) were so excited! It was magical and every child’s dream day! Thank you Steve and Nikki (and of course Theodore)!! You guys are seriously the best!
