Lasten outdoor-päiväleiri 13.-15.6. 9-14
Lapset + ulkoilu = ihan parasta
Strömfors on ihanteellinen paikka lasten ja nuorten luontokokemuksiin ja uusien lajien turvalliseen kokeiluun. Ruukkialueen keskellä sijaitseva ”allasmainen” joenuoma on tyyni ja tasainen harjoittelualusta vesilajeille ja monipuolinen maasto tarjoaa eritasoisia vaellus- ja pyöräilyreittejä. Tehtaan pihan nurmikentällä taas on hyvä pelata ja leikkiä.

Kolmen aamupäivän lastenleirillä tutustumme erilaisiin ulkolajeihin sään mukaan.

Ke 13.6. klo 9–14
Ensimmäisenä leiripäivänä tutustumme toisiimme pihaleikkien lomassa sekä  teemme maastopyöräilyretken.

To 14.6. klo 9–14
Toinen leiripäivä on kiipeilypäivä. Tutustumme ilman boulderointiin sekä sisäseinällämme että ulkona Kukuljärven ympäristön upeilla kivillä.

Pe 15.6. klo 9–14
Kolmantena leiripäivänä kokeilemme vesilajeja kuten suppausta ja purjelautailua sekä tietysti uimme – sään niin salliessa.

Huom! Lajivalikoima on alustava ja elää kelien ja osallistujaporukan innon ja taitojen mukaan.

Kenelle leiri on tarkoitettu?
6–12-vuotiaat uimataitoiset lapset ja nuoret Hinta: 125€, sisältää kaikki tarvittavat varusteet sekä välipalan päivän aikana.

Vanhemmat voivat kurssipäivien aikana istahtaa hetkeksi hengähtämään Café Ström & Forsiin, tutustua ruukkialueen käsityöläispuoteihen tai käydä pienellä kävelyllä esimerkiksi Kukul-järven vaellusreitillä.
