Ausable Bayfield Conservation offers six one-day specialty day camps at three different watershed locations in August 2022

Conservation educators at Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) are offering six specialty one-day summer nature day camps, at three different locations in the watershed, in August of 2022. There are one-day summer nature camps on August 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, and 11.

There are two different one-day camps at Rock Glen Conservation Area in Arkona; two one-day day camps at Morrison Dam Conservation Area east of Exeter; and two one-day camps at Clinton Conservation Area.

The camps have different themes such as Fantastic Fossils; Beautiful Bugs; Delightful Decomposers; Wonderful Water; Tremendous Trees; and Marvelous Macros (Bugs).

“These new specialty one-day nature camps provide an opportunity for young people in different watershed communities to learn actively in the great outdoors and to connect with nature,” said Nina Sampson, Conservation Educator. “Parents and guardians can choose the location that is most convenient or the theme that is of greatest interest.”
