We invite your organization to take part in this year’s Kids Expo. This event brings together area organizations for the largest outdoor youth environmental education program in the region. It is a full-day event with entertainment, exhibits, and presenters throughout the entire day. Each year we organize exhibits into four different outdoor adventure-inspired themes:
Let’s Move! Teaching kids about safety, nutrition and health
Get up and get your body moving in the Let’s Move village, where your energy will never run out! Run, jump, play, climb, dance and learn what to eat, so that you can always keep your body moving. Then test your new skills on the obstacle course.
Let’s Explore!Teaching kids about nature and wildlife
Get outside and fulfill your curiosity in the Let’s Explore village! Get up close and personal with nature and wildlife. Come on this journey with us and discover what you can find in your own backyard.
Let’s Splash!Teaching kids about water safety and aquatic life
Get drenched with knowledge about water quality and safety in the Let’s Splash village! You can go fishing in Winton Lake, learn how to put on a lifejacket and paddle in a raft on Winton Lake.
Let’s Be Green!Teaching kids how to reduce, reuse and recycle
Get dirty and see how you can make a difference in the Let’s Be Green village! Discover what you can do to become a steward of the environment: planting, composting, recycling, and gardening all to care for your world. Create arts and crafts from reused materials!
As an Exhibitor, you will interact with groups of children of all ages. There is an emphasis on hands-on, interactive activities that focus on science, nature, art, outdoor recreation and health, or the environment. We encourage you to contact us if you would like some help developing this type of experience.
