If you are looking to get your kids off the computer and out into nature this summer you better hope to it. The first week of the Nature Explorer Summer Camps in Kawartha Lakes is sold. The good news is that there are three more weeks available.
Nature Explorer Summer Camps is a partnership between Fleming College and Ken Reid Conservation Area. The week-long camps for children aged six to 10 will focus on fun, hands-on activities around environmental education and outdoor skills. Campers are going 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.
“Camp participants will get 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.
The camps will alternate between Fleming College and Ken Reid Conservation Area and focus on wildlife, habitats, aquatics, nature art and wilderness skills or birds, rocks/minerals/soils, wetlands, climate change/weather/water cycle and wilderness skills, depending on the week chosen.
There is limited space available for the July 24-28, August 14 to 18 and August 21 to 25 camps. The fee is $190 for the week.
