Nature Play Adventures

Nature Play Adventures Begins Spring 2022 at the Powder Springs Passive Area

What are “Nature Play Adventures?”

Nature Play Adventures at Sparrow’s Nest Play are designed to allow children opportunities to grow, learn, and explore in nature on an ongoing basis while developing specific skills such as:

  • peacemaking
  • conflict resolution
  • sustainability
  • care for the environment
  • mindfulness

The daily schedule at Nature Play Adventures changes seasonally and with the interests of the children, but usually includes:

  • large group gathering
  • snack
  • group games
  • free nature play
  • mindfulness routines
  • nature art projects
  • nature journaling
  • seasonal group projects

Sparrow’s Nest Play has been founded with equitable access to nature and affordability in mind. We are a community open to families and children of all faiths, races, abilities, and backgrounds. We cherish opportunities to embrace diversity among one another, teaching collaboration, justice, and peace.

Costs and Process

If you would like to register a child for Nature Play Adventures, fill out the form on our Registration Page. If you would like to register multiple children, please fill it out once for each child.

Customize Your Schedule

Families may sign up for any combination of days per week that best fits their schedule and budget. Enrollment will be confirmed once you have selected your weekly schedule and we affirm we have room for your child on those selected days. Once you select your schedule, we prefer it to remain set for the semester (Spring: January – May; Fall: August – December) to allow your child to establish a routine*. Should you need to make a change, please contact the Director.

*If your child is absent on a day when they are scheduled to arrive at Sparrow’s Nest Play, you will be called to confirm their absence. Should routine absences on days reserved for your child become habitual, we will contact you regarding a schedule change for your child.
