What Families are Saying

“I really enjoyed wandering in the forest and finding our own path back. I also like the challenges they gave me. I loved the freedom and the level of learning in this nature camp. It was my favourite camp!” – Claire, Summer Camp Participant

“Our son very much enjoyed the personal attention that he receives from the instructors. This created a sense of belonging and made him feel special. The use of sense-engagement games, alongside inquiry-based learning, made the camp both intellectually and physically engaging and rewarding.” – Joyce, Summer Camp Parent

“A refreshing change from school: experiencing nature directly, kids are tricked into learning, not coerced” – Pia, Summer Camp Parent
