KIDS N Nature Camps 2018

KIDS ‘N Nature Camps 2018 by Janine McClintock

Parents and grandparents are signing up children for our Kids ‘n Nature Summer Camps – and they couldn’t be more excited!

‘I would like to sign my daughter up for this camp. It will be her 3rd summer with you. She loves it and so do I!’

Since our outdoor adventure camp experience has proved to be so popular, we get a lot of repeat customers.  To keep activities fresh, we offer different themes every week.  Each camp week will include nature-based games, crafts, learning activities, hiking and 3 beach afternoons.  In addition, there will be special activities based on the following themes:

July 16-20: Presqu’ile Jones and the Missing Treasures

Have you ever wondered what Presqu’ile was like before it became a Park? Travel back in time with us to meet Presqu’ile’s very own pirate, alleged rum runners, and settlers; learn about the sinking of the Speedy and uncover clues leading to our missing treasures.

July 30-August 2: Wildlife Zootopia

Did you know that there are five distinctive habitats in Presqu’ile and each has different ecology, plants and animals? Very few animals can live in all five habitats and some animals are able to do some extraordinary things to help them survive. Join us this week to look for animals in the park, and to find out which animals cooperate or compete with each other.

Aug 13-17: Adventures Back in Time

Every good story must start somewhere, and ours started 450 million years ago during the Ordovician period. Older than the dinosaurs, our park offers much loved fossils, and many interesting tales surrounding our lake. Campers will get the opportunity to explore the many historical events that took place at Presqu’ile and participate in activities such as pirate training, a rum running course and the running of the Presqu’ile hotel.

Aug 20-24: Mission:  Migration

Fall will soon be upon us, and while some animals stay, others start travelling to warmer climates to over winter. Have you ever wondered how migratory animals know where to go and how to get there? Campers will get the chance to uncover the techniques and secrets behind animal migration

New for 2018:  LINC:  Leadership in Nature Camp for 12 to 14 year olds

July 9-13:  Biodiversity Bonanza

Are you too old for our day camps, but still want enjoy the outdoors with your peers?  Do you want to learn more about nature conservation, and increase your leadership skills?  Join us to discover why biodiversity is important and how its preservation affects humans, while practicing teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership skills.

Cost is $130 per week per camper.  Register and pay online at:  www.friendsofpresquile.on.c
