Outdoor Play, Risky Play, and Healthy Children

  • Fort McMurray Boys and Girls Club 20 Riedel St Fort McMurray, AB, T9H 3E1 Canada (map)

Join us to learn more about why outdoor play, in nature and with its risks, is so important for our kids. We will share the growing body of research that supports the essential role that outdoor play has in healthy child development. We will examine the value of outdoor play and risk within the context of health, education, recreation, child care, parks, community centres, after-school programs and public spaces. We will talk about perceptions of risk, liability, duty of care, risk assessment systems.
