Earth Day Nature Camp

Humber Arboretum Nature 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.

This year, kids can celebrate Earth Day at the Arboretum!

With Earth Day falling on Easter Monday this year most schools will be closed, so we're hosting a one-day Nature Camp on Monday April 22nd.

Kids aged 5-12 are invited to join Humber Arboretum staff for a day of ecological exploration that's full of seasonal, hands-on activities.

 

Earth Day Nature Camp will also feature a performance by Green Kids Inc, who will bring their show Wild Wild Wilderness to the Centre for Urban Ecology: 

 

A story of one kid's accidental effect on a nearby forest and its creatures, performed by a single storyteller and armfuls of adorable puppets. Wild Wild Wilderness demonstrates the connections between habitat, wildlife, and human activity, and empowers young people to make positive choices towards protecting our environment.
