In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Humber Arboretum has made the difficult decision to cancel our Summer Nature Camps for 2020.
Keep an eye on our social media channels (@humberarb) for upcoming virtual learning and engagement opportunities, as well as updates on future events and programming as the situation develops. Get the latest news from Humber College at: https://humber.ca/updates
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.
During July and August (Not running in 2020)
Ages 4 - 12
Campers will spend their days participating in nature walks, forest exploration, pond discovery, camp songs and games, and much more. Our popular Wilderness Survival theme has been expanded to nine days for campers aged 6-12, and we have a new theme - Sensational Senses - just for our youngest campers.
Two one-week sessions and two two-week sessions covering six weeks in July and August (Not running in 2020)
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 is facilitated by the Humber Arboretum's Nature Interpreters and offers a more in-depth investigation of the natural world for older kids who are excited by the prospect of discovery.
2020 Camp Complete - Future Details TBA
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.
2021 details 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.
