Nature Camps

Humber Arboretum day camps are based out of the Centre for Urban Ecology, but campers will spend most of their time outdoors where they will make their own discoveries in the forest, river, meadows, wetlands, gardens, and ponds of the Humber Arboretum. Active and engaging, our nature camps are designed for ages 5-12 and take place within the northwest part of the City of Toronto.

“I have to say how impressed I am with your camp. This is the first year for my son and he's loving it, so he will be back next year…     

My nephew, son & son's friend said it was the best camp ever. In fact, my nephew ….who lives in Ottawa said he enjoyed it so much that he wants to come back next summer to go to that same camp.” – Kelly Z.

“Our experience with the summer camp at the Humber Arboretum was outstanding. The programming successfully kept my rambunctious son engaged and little did he realize how much he learned. My son is a regular participant of summer camps of all kinds, and months later he still talks about how great this camp was. Unlike the usual “nothing” response I’m accustomed to getting from him when I would ask him what he did that day, he would greet me at the end of each camp day full of excitement and eager to recount his experience. The leaders created a welcoming and fun-filled environment, quickly making his first day jitters vanish. I especially value that the setting nurtures a connection with nature, it exposes children to the post-secondary environment and the leaders serve as great role models for educational goal-setting. By the second day of camp my son was telling me about what the various camp leaders were studying in school, paving the way for some great discussions about learning and careers. The summer camp at the Humber Arboretum is truly second to none.” – Barbara M.
