Discovery Begins Here…
WHO WE ARE
The Discovery Clubs Programme started in 1995 and has evolved from weekend field trips for small groups, to a network of over 74 individual school clubs that manage over 1000 students between the ages of 7 and 25 on 10 Bahamian islands. The programme is dedicated to inspire and educate Bahamian youths to become knowledgeable environmental stewards through fun, conservation-based classroom lessons, hands on activities and field trips.
The 4 distinct clubs currently under this programme include Explorers, Guardians, Navigators-Marine and Navigators-Terrestrial. Each club caters to a specific age group and features specialized interests.
WHAT WE DO
The BNT Discovery Clubs are mostly run as extracurricular school clubs led by teachers for students who have an interest in nature. The clubs combine and incorporate environmental education with other disciplines such as art, ecology, history, camping, exploration and astronomy. There are field trips to solidify the in-class lessons and social interactive events complement the programme.
Club members participate in a fun and rewarding journey as they discover the beauty, uniqueness and fragile nature of Bahamian ecosystems. Special activities help members acquire the knowledge, values and skills needed to generate respect for the unique culture, nature and history of The Bahamas while gaining a better understanding of the responsibilities of The Bahamas National Trust.
