Metsämörri courses

Metsämörri is an activity where the aim is to bring children closer to nature through their own experiences, life and their senses. The goal is that children will naturally become familiar with nature through songs and games and will learn to recognise common plamts and animals. In the forest they will experience the small and big miracles of nature.

Courses are arranged once a week in spring and autumn, for four to five weeks. Pre-announcements of the courses will be made in Kouvolan Sanomat and Pohjois-Kymenlaakso newspapers assosiation columns, and also on this website.

Moomin outdoors course

Moomin outdoors is an extension of Moomin skiing and snowshoe walking. With the help of exciting Moomin characters, the course gives children and families the chance to get out and about also during the times when the snow has melted. The course teaches skills at the childrens level and through games according to the age. It is a more complex way, where hiking and camping skills are taught, how to move through the nature, and also games linked to themes. Each skill set has a set character from Moomin Valley and these will be built around the ready stories.

Moomin outdoors courses:

  • Moominfamily 0-10 y (with a responsible adult)
  • Moomintroll 5-6 y
  • Hemulen 6-10 y

Guides are required to have Suomen Latu training, if you are interested Kouvola Latu will pay if you agree to guide future trips. Welcome!
