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 4-13 and take place within the northwest part of the City of Toronto.
Thursday January 2nd - Friday January 3rd, 2020
Kids can start the new year with seasonal outdoor fun. We'll explore the theme of winter survival, exploring animal tracks and signs, shelter building, and more.
2020 dates TBA
Owl prowls, fort building, chickadee feeding, animal tracking and - weather-permitting - snowshoeing and maple syrup harvesting make for a memorable March Break spent in the outdoors.
Weekly during July and August (2020 details TBA)
Ages 4 - 12
Campers will spend their days participating in nature walks, forest exploration, pond discovery, natural mindfulness, camp songs and games, and much more. Weekly themes this year include camp favourites such as Powerful Pollinators and Ecolympics, plus new topics like Healthy Planet, Healthy Lives and Growing Gardeners.
Six weekly sessions in July and August (2020 details TBA)
This camp focuses on exploring the West Humber Valley’s flora and fauna in greater detail. Running concurrently with several weeks of summer nature camp, it offers a more in-depth investigation of the natural world for older kids who are excited by the prospect of discovery.
