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 5-13 and take place within the northwest part of the City of Toronto.

Seasonal fun at this three-day Winter Break camp will include forest exploration, owl prowls, animal tracking, eco-arts, chickadee feeding and snowshoeing (if weather permits). New for 2019 - daily themes under the umbrella theme of Winter Survival!
Monday March 11 - Friday March 15, 2019
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.
