The Manitoba Nature Summit Inc. has developed a strategy to train potential young environmental stewards who work with young children in a variety of capacities.
Manitoba Nature Summit 2010 & 2012
The Manitoba Nature Summit Inc. is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization invested in incorporating nature into children's lives. Research shows that children have become alienated from nature and its curative and inspiring effects.
The date of the next Conference will be September 14 - 16th, 2012.
The Nature Summit will bring together 150 delegates – early childhood educators, teachers, nature enthusiasts, health professionals, landscape architects and others - for three days of skill development and developing strategic relationships. Delegates will be offered opportunities to explore nature and develop skills that they can share with the children in their lives.
The Nature Summit will be held outside at Camp Manitou just outside of Winnipeg Manitoba off Highway #1. The Camp consists of 28 wooded acres next to the Assiniboine River. Buildings on-site include main lodge, sleeping cabins, large group meeting room/gymnasium, and rustic camp cabins.
