P&R Adventures 2
Instructor: Victoria Rouleau
Education:
Bachelor of Environmental Science with a minor in Climate Change and Sustainability
 
Graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2019 where I studied Environmental Science and worked as a preschool teacher for 5 years. I gained experience, while attending Central Catholic High School, as an Assistant Program Director at a subsidized afterschool and summer program . A little bit about me, I love working with kids and I am looking forward to combining my passion for the environment with my teaching experiences. I am in the process of hiking all 48 of the “4000 footers” in the White Mountain ranges and getting a patch of completion (5 down 43 more to go). I am outdoorsy, outgoing, and ready to explore the town of Littleton!


Each week will consist of a different excursion into nature around Littleton! We are eliminating van usage for this round of adventures and adopting a drop off and pickup at trip location this session. You must be able to drop off and pickup your child from our location that week in order to enroll in this program.  

Littleton Parks, Recreation, and Community Education
Today the amount of time kids spend outside is alarmingly low—only minutes per day—while screen time is at an all-time high!
 
Littleton Parks, Recreation, and Community Education offers an Outdoor Adventure Course where we will discover nature close to home! This program is designed for supervised environmental exploration - We aim to explore the great outdoors while creating a positive learning environment.
 
Oceanographer Don Walsh said, “Exploration is curiosity put into action.” For a few hours of the day The Outdoor Adventure Course seeks to enrich your child’s curiosity about the outdoors. Keep in mind each hands-on learning experience will be modified depending on the child’s age level and applicable session time…

Grades K-5 Session: 10 AM – 12 PM    Grades 6-8 Session: 12 PM – 2 PM
COST: $125R/ $135NR
