Herban Adventures Kids’ Camp: Wilderness First Aid

June 20, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Herban Adventures is back at Tiny Diner with more amazing classes to engage your children in healthy eating and gardening! The out of doors is a place of wild exploration, amazing treasures and potential pitfalls. In the second class of the series, we’ll learn how to plan ahead and take care of ourselves when disaster strikes. You’ll be able to laugh at a mosquito bite, take care of a pesky splinter, and stop a cut from bleeding. Be prepared with knowledge of herbal first aid and you’ll be able to walk the woods with confidence!

This class can be taken as individually or as a three part series. Other classes take place on Wednesday June 13th and 27th from 9-11am. Classes are designed for children 3-9 but all ages are welcome. Classes will take place rain or shine. Parents must be on-site during class times and are encouraged to attend the class.
