"Last Child in the Woods", by Richard Louv was the inspiration for the founding of this week. It's to keep children connected with nature!

Our very own Exploration Station was modeled after this concept.

Safe Environment Training Webinars

These sessions are for adults and will be just over 2 hours long with one short break. They will equip you to recognize and report child abuse and neglect. Upon completion, you will receive a certificate, which you must give to your ministry site as part of your Level C certification. This safe environment training is required for all clergy, employees and those in leadership positions with children and youth. These sessions are for either initial safe environment training or for those needing the 5-year renewal. 


Once you receive your "Certificate of Completion", please email it to
