Summer Nature Day Camps are back in 2020.

 

Be WILD - Wonder, Investigate, Learn and Discover at Summer Nature Day Camp

There are two weeks of day camps and conservation educators say they are 'WILD' (Wonder, Investigate, Learn, and Discover).

The first camp, for ages 6-9, is WILD Explorers Day Camp on July 8-12, 2020.

The second camp, for ages 10 to 12, is WILD Adventurers Day Camp from July 22-26, 2020.

Wild Explorers Day Camp provides campers ages 6-9 the opportunity to explore the natural world at Morrison Dam Conservation Area along the Morrison Dam Conservation Area (MDCA) and MacNaughton-Morrison Sections of the South Huron Trail.  Campers end their week with a trip to the Exeter Splash Pad.  

WILD Adventurers campers are invited to be 'WILD' this summer at Morrison Dam Conservation Area (MDCA). Campers work together with staff at Ausable Bayfield Conservation to create a week full of fun, engaging, hands-on, nature-based activities. Conservation educators say that "the year 2020 will feature a day trip to Pinery Provincial Park where we will learn about dune ecosystems and the natural history of the area."

Past favourite activities include: shelter building; fire building; Go Wild! Survival; and pond life study.

Space is limited.

There are only 22 spaces available for WILD Explorers Day Camp.

There are only 20 spaces available for WILD Adventurers Day Camp.
