The 5-day camp for a younger age group with a shorter day explores the natural world and deepens our connection with it in small group adventures. Using city parks as our venue, we explore edible and medicinal plants, mammals and wildlife tracking, survival skills, and wildcrafting, gaining valuable skills while having a blast!

Program Highlights 

  • Curiosity-led exploration outdoors with learning opportunities introduced naturally and imaginative play that makes learning fun 
  • Nature-based games, stories, projects, and challenges to inspire connection to place related to the daily curriculum theme 
  • Mentoring delivered by experienced instructors to support students developing problem-solving skills, self-sufficiency, and a deeper level of learning
  • High adult to child ratio and primarily small group adventures

What Families are Saying

“Everyday, our kids come home dirty, tired and happy. This morning, we stopped along the trail and my son said, ‘Mommy, this is a Vine Maple..and that’s a Red Alder.’ He is 5 years old! It’s great how you integrated the younger kids into the mix, especially by encouraging the older ones to be inclusive” – Kira, Summer Camp Parent

“This is the only summer camp my kids ask to attend every single summer. They both started at age 4 and now at ages 8 and 10, they are both still equally excited to explore the beaches and forests with their friends and counsellors. They have learned a tremendous amount about nature over the years, which is much needed education for my urban kids! The staff are friendly, knowledgable, and kind. I highly recommend this camp to any kid who loves a fun, messy summer adventure in nature” – Aida, Summer Camp Parent

“Our children had a wonderful time. They called it “the best camp ever!”. We loved seeing them coming back every day full of excitement, stories, and dirt (oh and mosquito bites). The way you challenged the children to explore, ask questions and discover showed in their behaviour directly, as I noticed during the week and in the past couple of days.” – Frans and Fenneke, Summer Camp Parents
