Forest Playschool is an all-season, outdoor-only day camp attended by children in the North Park Village Nature Center in Peterson Park. The goal is to get kids to connect with nature and enjoy the great outdoors. Unfortunately, the program has come under fire from neighbors in North Park in recent months.
Angry residents voiced their complaints and demanded a shutdown about the children's program at a contentious community meeting Tuesday night.
For what it's worth, I would have loved a program like this as a kid! I hope they can settle on a compromise. It's great for kids to get fresh air year-round and to learn to love playing outside.
