June 9, 2017 – Looking for a fun-filled, hands-on, educational camp for children this summer? Kawartha Conservation is offering a series of one-day camps for kids ages 4 and 5.
“We’re really excited about these camps,” explained Nancy Aspden, Coordinator of Environmental Programs/GIS Specialist. “We have put together a really fun and informative series of camps that will keep kids engaged in an outdoor education setting.”
Themes for the four, one-day camps will be Amazing Animals, Art in Nature, Wonders of Water and Bugs.
“We wanted to offer a diverse mix of camps so that parents who were interested, had the opportunity to register their four and five year olds in multiple camps and it would be a different and unique experience each time,” said Ms. Aspden.
The one-day summer camps will begin on Wednesday, July 5 with Amazing Animals, followed by Art in Nature on Wednesday, July 12, Wonders of Water on Wednesday, August 2 and Bugs on Wednesday, August 9.
The camps will each run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Camp participants can be dropped off at 8 a.m. and picked up at 4:30 p.m. Cost is $45 per day camp, $40 per camp if you sign up for three days and $35 per camp if you register for all four one-day camps.
“These one-day camps will all offer different themes with all activities being hands-on, structured and geared to outdoor learning in a fun, safe and nurturing environment away from screens and televisions.
“Ken Reid Conservation Area and our Outdoor Education facility offers a perfect venue to enjoy the summer, explore nature while learning and building strong friendships and a love of nature,” added Ms. Aspden.
