Event description

Description

Taquanyah Nature Centre Day Camp is all about being outdoors, discovering nature, learning new skills, making new friends and enjoying memories that will last a lifetime.

Nature Adventure Day Camps at the Taquanyah Nature Centre are designed for kids aged 6 - 12. Each camp is action-packed and full of different activities each and every day. All of these camps focus on environmental discovery and adventure. Campers learn about the outdoors in a fun way. We are outside for most of the day exploring the fields and forests around the nature centre.

Every camper receives a free t-shirt. Our staff to camper ratio is 1:8. All staff have first aid training.

All camps run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Supervision is provided from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m free of charge.

FAQS

What should my child bring to the camps?

Day camp programming takes place outside as much as possible. To make sure that your child has the best possible experience at camp, please be sure to send them with the following items:

- A healthy, nut free lunch and drinks (a refillable water bottle is a good choice)

- Extra snacks – we work up a good appetite every day!

- Closed-toed shoes. (no open-toed sandals.) Closed-toed sandals must have heel straps.

- Sun hat and sunscreen

- Rain gear – just in case!

- A change of clothes and shoes.

- On hot days we may play water games to cool down so a swimsuit may be a good idea.

Sunscreen and bug spray should be applied before your child comes to camp each day. Staff will remind campers to reapply sunscreen throughout the day. Please be sure your child knows how to apply their sunscreen. We do not provide or apply sunscreen or bug spray due to the possibility of allergic reactions.

Who can I contact with questions?

About two weeks before camp starts you will be sent a camp information package. This will hopefully answer all your questions but if you have any specific questions feel free to email AppsMillNC@grandriver.ca.

What is the refund policy?

Full refunds will be granted if requested six weeks before the first day of camp. Refunds requested after that time and up to three weeks before the first day of camp will be subject to a $50 administration fee. Refunds requested less than three weeks before the first day of camp will be subject to a $100 administration fee.

Camps

Survival Challenge (Ages 6-12) July 23-27

Can you survive in the wild? This week, we will learn survival skills such as shelter-building, lighting a fire with and without matches, compass reading, geo-caching, and more. Explore nature through hands-on activities, games and survival challenges.

The 50 Things Camp (Ages 6-12) July 30-Aug 3

It's time to discover your wild side. We have come up with a list of 50 fantastic experiences that everyone should have before they are 12. Have you ever tamed a scary beast, caught a crayfish, raced Pooh sticks or found a geocache? We have a full week of outdoor experiences and challenges for campers to check off their bucket list (based on www.nationaltrust.org.uk/50things).

Buddy Adventure (Ages 6-12) Aug 7-10

Adopt a stuffed buddy on the first day of camp and take part in an adventure together every day. A few adventures for your buddy will include building shelters, raft racing and scavenger hunts. After a week of fun-filled challenges take your buddy home with you.
