Our sessions introduce children to design, craft skills and project management. Beyond the sheer fun factor of being in a creative social learning environment, project based craft, is a fantastic way to prepare your children for all those assignments that both school and life will throw at them in the coming years. The class environment is similar to a club, and our heritage house is like a giant cubby house for young people.
FUNDED AND VOLUNTEER BASED PROGRAMS
We are very excited to announce that Brisbane City Council is funding several classes at The Nest during the school holidays!
The Nest offers workshops for 10 - 17 year olds in addition to the BCC G'n'K Program and the BCC Chill out Program.
BCC GOLD'n'Kids (G'n'K) Program:
Brisbane City Council recognises the important role that grandparents play in most children's lives. Council runs GOLD'n'Kids (G'n'K) activities designed for children aged 4 years and older and seniors to enjoy together.
BCC ChillOut Program:
Brisbane City Council's ChillOut Program is one of Brisbane's most popular youth programs for young people between 10 - 17 years old. Limit of 2 ChillOut workshops per participant.
For each workshop that you book you child into we ask that you apply sun protection to your child and provide them with a water bottle and a snack.
When you book your child into a retreat or workshop at The Nest you are not just purchasing a creative experience for your child but you are also contributing significantly towards making The Nest activities accessible to those less fortunate. As a not-for-profit organisation, the money we make goes directly back into our community programs.
