The Manitoba Nature Summit would like to invite you to send us your workshop proposals for the 2020 Nature Summit which will be held September 24th, 25th, & 26th at Camp Assinaboia (2220 Lido Plage Rd, MB).

Manitoba Nature Summit is a non-profit, charitable organization that provides opportunities for educators to learn about nature, alleviate fears, and pass a renewed sense of wonder on to the children in their lives.  We aim to engage educators in the outdoors and give them the inspiration and confidence to foster creativity, adventure, and an appreciation of the natural world in their students.

2020 is our 10-year anniversary summit so we want to make it extra special. We are very excited about our new venue but that is not the only change we are making. This summit will begin on Thursday evening with some informal networking opportunities, a communal supper cooked on the campfire, and plenty of time to get settled in to your accommodations. Keynotes and workshops will be held on Friday and Saturday.

Our goal is to provide workshops for educators that are hands on and develop concrete skills that they can use to get children outside. Topics can range from birding, fishing, geocaching, art, drama, music to orienteering, outdoor cooking, wild crafting, tree climbing, group games, risk assessment, forest school, and much more!

While most of our participants work with children between 3-12 years of age we also have participants that work with infants and youth. Workshops are also required to emphasize inclusive practice.  Please specify what age group(s) your workshop is best suited for e.g. Infants/Preschool (3 months-5 years), School-Age (6-12 years) or Youth (10-18 years).

*The Manitoba Nature Summit is an outdoor conference (rain/snow/shine). Indoor time should be very limited and power point presentations are discouraged* No really – don’t plan a power point!
