Halifax Chapter

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, the Halifax Chapter usually meets on the 4th Sunday afternoon of each month.

To find out about field trips topics and locations, you can become a YNC member online, and indicate Halifax as your “home” Chapter. You’ll be added to the Parents Listserv for the Halifax Chapter, and you’ll start receiving emails with the details of each field trip. You can go on any field trips that suit your family. If you are not sure about joining yet, please feel free to ask questions of the Halifax Chapter Leader, Karen (contact email below).
