Johanna Peters

Florence Tsai

Sarah MacDonald

Ehlssie Tecson

Talia Erickson

Kezia Antholyka

Every afternoon through July and August, our teachers present a program of play and learning all about social engagement, and getting outside ~ with three fieldtrips a week to forests, parks, beaches and galleries, plus cooking, art, music, and more! ~ for Big Kids of all ages, and those who don’t sleep in the afternoons.

Weekday classes run from 1 – 4pm, with many fieldtrips this summer extending to 5pm. Saturday-care is flexible, from 10am – 4pm.

Check out the program:

Johanna Peters Sells Seashells by the Sea Shore

Beaches, beaches, beaches! Exploring Vancouver’s beaches and all the magic and hidden treasures beaches contain. Mondays through July and August.

Florence Tsai packs a Summer Picnic

Florence brings her joy of cooking, and degree in nutrition, to our summer program, with a weekly cooking class of summer classics, Tuesdays from 1 – 4pm.

Forest School, with Sarah MacDonald

Finding our roots amidst our tall, leafy friends, and learning from the forest. Every week from 1 – 5pm, Sarah leads the kids on a walk in the park, under the shade of the West Coast canopy.

Ehlssie Tecson Rides with Raven

The art of the Pacific North West tells the story of the people, and the creatures, who inhabit this land. Ehlssie is the anthropologist with an artistic eye, and her Thursday class this summer explores the beautiful culture of this native land.

Talia Erickson explores Vancouver, Under Construction

Explore the many ways our city’s landscape is developing and changing… and the roadblocks that arise. Fridays from 1 – 4pm, it’s about buildings and trucks.

Kezia Antholyka presents My Canada

Kezia is new to Buddings, new to Canada, and full of enthusiasm for her summer project: exploring the festivals and celebrations for our 150th anniversary. Born in Jakarta, her Canadian experience is a new-comer’s view, and the Saturday-care kids join her in learning all she can, 10am – 4pm.

Permission forms are always required for fieldtrips, and we ask that families apply sunscreen to their own children before drop off.

#BKCSummerJourneys runs from July 4 – Aug. 31, 2017.
