    OOSH in the Bush goes west

 

OOSH in the Bush, the wildly popular kids program developed in Centennial Parklands, has gone west – to western Sydney, that is. And the kids are loving it!

A program specifically designed for the OOSH (out of school hours care) industry, the team at Centennial Parklands won a $76,000 grant from the NSW Environment Trust to develop, extend and research the program. As part of this, our team took the program out to the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan to offer local kids in the Camden/Campbelltown areas a chance to connect with nature and enjoy some wild play action.

Here’s an article from the local media on the program and then watch our great Bush School video below, to learn more about our work in the nature education field.
