Naya Tribe: terrific outdoor activities for kids in Amsterdam
Every week, find your tribe back to live wild adventures in real nature like a true Scout!
This Naya outdoor programme aims to bring kids back into the wild. It welcomes inquiring minds who like to understand how things work. Together with friends and their Nature mediator, they will engage in various topics, like ecology, active listening, building shelters, wildlife tracking, search for edible plants, treasure hunts, acting, etc. Through all that, they will also build up a community. “Become one with Nature” stands as the motto of the learning, which will also help children develop empathy and embrace differences. The programme will culminate in a celebration with the distribution of certificates in wood-crafting, tying knots, rope manufacturing, etc. There will be enough time for laughs, fun challenges, and unstructured play with friends to nurture creativity and flourish. Step by step, your big one will turn into a courageous free spirit: are you ready to witness this transformation?
All sessions are led in English. Nature Mediators also understand and can speak Dutch and at least another language in case of important or urgent need. This is a drop-off class for kids-only: children attend without a parent.
We believe that child that is connected to nature, is a child who won’t hurt nature, because they have too much respect for it! Getting children to fall in love with their local nature is a good starting point for mobilizing them in their first citizenship actions. Greening the city, reducing plastic waste, being intelligent in the use of water….. Children choose their challenge by themselves and use their creative thinking. This is what we call the “Eco-squad missions”.
Meet your Nature Mediator
Education Counsellor & Nature Mediator
As an Education Counsellor, I see how nature offers infinite opportunities for children to grow as independent, resilient and well-adjusted individuals.
From: France. Speaks: French, English, Dutch, Spanish.
I am a seasoned Education Counsellor and Mediator at Naya Nature. I actively listen to children and make sure they feel at home with us in nature. I always take time to connect with children and parents, considering each child’s personnality and situation. I train our team in the field and together we look after children’s emotional and physical safety. Human and respect for the living are at the heart of everything I do.
I strongly believe our kids belong in nature. This is the best environment for them to grow in. Nature challenges them in every possible way, triggers their curiosity, their creativity, their problem-solving skills. It offers infinite opportunities to develop into independent, resilient and well-adjusted individuals. Using my mediating skills in nature is wonderful. I am not only a mediator for children, but between children and nature.
