The Halifax Chapter's programming is generally geared towards 7 to 12 year olds, however all ages are welcome on field trips.
For monthly field trips, we usually meet from 1:00pm to 4:00pm on the 4th Sunday of each month at various locations in HRM, from September to June. See the Upcoming Events section for dates and details of upcoming YNC Halifax Chapter events.
You can join at anytime throughout the year by registering online. Please register and check in with the Halifax Chapter Leader before attending your first field trip.
