Feeling stressed and overwhelmed?
Want to slow down and (re)connect with nature?

Bob Ross anyone?

Did you know that connecting with nature is good for our psychological and physical well-being? It can help reduce stress, improve concentration and increase time spent being physically active, according to the American Psychological Association.

Regular, intentional connection with nature has been proven to:

Decrease fatigue
Increase the ability to focus
Improve physical and mental health
Reduce production of stress hormone cortisol
Positively impact environmental attitudes and behaviors

Local high school students are invited to join Kimberly at the Panbos (Wassenaarseweg 152A – 2223LD Katwijk) for a seasonal club to experience an unplugged, nature (re)connected 90 minutes a day, one day a week for 3 or 6 weeks. 

€45 per 3-week cohort or €90 for a six week cohort

Students in the Club Wildwood will enjoy:

exploring natural settings near the ASH campus,
mindfulness-based, photography,
collaging with paper and natural materials,
and technology-free, creative connections with nature & friends.
