Education and Fun

Whooooooooooah! Stay Safe Alert!

People are eager to get outside and start exploring all the great things to do in YDH. But don't forget....it's still important to stay safe while you are having fun supporting our local businesses and communities.

If you are lucky enough to live in YDH (we are biased) or you want to come for a visit, we've got some great ideas for you to get active outside, explore your inner artist, learn something new and celebrate this awesome season...virtually or in-person. Please note that many conservation parks and trails are over capacity, so ensure you pre-book your visit or even better...step off the beaten path and find discover a new terrain to enjoy.

We look forward to seeing you!

Please check with all businesses for updated hours of operation, programming, COVID-19 policies, and restrictions.

Want to combine education and fun for the family in one? Visit Heartwood Farm & Cidery (by reservation only) and the kiddos won’t even realize they are learning something. Let Val and her team share her story of regenerative farming while the kids meet the animals including cows, sheep, lamas and pigs. After your tour treat the kiddos to some fresh made on the farm cider and have a sample or two of the hard stuff for yourselves.

After your farm experience head over to the quaint town of Erin (a 10 minute drive) and grab a bite to eat at Tin Roof Café where you’ll find an impressive list of grilled cheeses, yummy bakery items and a great selection of lattes including lavender and nutellachino. Or if you are looking for something more on the magical side try Maddie Hatter Tea Shop full whimsical décor for Queen’s Tea which includes finger sandwiches, scones, desserts and of course, tea.

Once the kids have had some foot and have had a chance to rest their feet, head over to Brighten Up Toys and Games and pick up a traditional favourite or stay on the educational track with one of the STEM Kits.
