For the first few days of the September school holidays Friday 19th to Sunday 21st September 2014, Tania Moloney will be running a Nurture in Nature Family Nature Connection Retreat at Pennyroyal Otways Retreat in the Otway Ranges, about 90 minutes from Melbourne.

Nature connection and free play is so important for kids physical and mental health, their learning and to help nurture strong family bonds. It is also very important that everybody helps their kids to know and love the natural world so they can grow up caring for it.

There will be a variety of activities and experiences planned for the lucky families who come along to the retreat. Activities include:
- cubby building challenge
- screen time versus green time - striking the balance
- connecting conversations
- night walk and star gazing
- building positive family connections
- kids nature adventure report
- the passion test for families
- big family dinner - tin foil dinners
- sowing the seeds of learning
- up the creek adventure (keep an eye out for the resident platypus family!)
- nature bucket lists

Visit the website to find out more about the retreat and how to book your family's spot.

The retreat is only open to between five and seven families. It is purposefully kept small so each family can have a really special experience.
