Strövare in English
I Knivsta har vi en strövargrupp där alla pratar engelska. Det är i första hand för barn födda 2006-2008. Om ni skulle vara intresserade och vill ha mer information så kontakta gärna gruppledaren, Jonathan Royce, email@example.com, 018-380416.
Strövare is Friluftsfrämjandet's childrens' program aimed at kids who are between 7-9 years of age. It is open to both boys and girls.
Our group follows all of the norms set by Friluftsfrämjandet, except that we speak in English with the children. Peter and I are both Americans by birth but we have been speaking Swedish for more than 10 years, so we understand the children even if they speak Swedish. The children in the group have various levels of command over the English language but everyone has good comprehension skills.
We meet 6-8 times per term. Each meeting is at a different location, and we issue a schedule in advance so you know what the activities are that we are planning and where the meeting points will be. By and large, everything will be within a 15 minute drive of central Knivsta. The meetings are normally about 3 hours in length and focus on outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, paddling, etc.
If you are interested in joining our group, please send me an email or give a ring on my mobile number.
A detailed packlist will be emailed for each gathering. A general list of things to pack:
- A water bottle (filled with water)
- A change of socks
- Two band-aids (for practice purposes)
- Sit cushion (sittunderlag)
- A drink cup suitable for hot drinks (like their Mulle mug)
- A plastic bowl and spoon
