May 12, 2017 – Due to overwhelming popularity, Fleming College and Kawartha Conservation are adding a fifth week to the popular Nature Explorer Summer Camp for children aged 6 to 10 years old for August 28 to September 1.
“The response has been incredible,” said Nancy Aspden, Coordinator, Environmental Programs/GIS Specialist. “The number of registrations and inquiries for this year’s summer camp series has been overwhelming.”
The week-long summer camps focus on fun, hands-on activities around environmental education and outdoor skills. Campers get to explore wildlife, get their hands dirty, participate in activities that teach outdoor skills, conduct water measurements and explore aquatic life, undertake experiments and much more.
“Campers are also going to work on different projects and crafts that they can take home at the end of a day and participate in a variety of games and physical activities like scavenger hunts and orienteering activities,” said Ms. Aspden.
Both August camps sold out quickly, with limited space still available for the July 17 to 21 camp.
“We heard from a number of parents who were interested in another August camp so we are offering a third Nature Explorer Summer Camp from August 28 to September 1,” said Ms. Aspden. “We have received a lot of positive feedback from parents and caregivers and we expect this final camp week to sell out quickly as well.”
The final camp week of summer will focus on birds, wilderness skills, wetlands, trees and nature art, aquatics and orienteering and map reading.
