Grand River Conservation Authority day camps are about fun, education and learning to commune with the natural environment. We provide hands-on, environmental-based programs that are geared specifically for the ages, needs and interests of our participants.
These programs feature nature-themed activities and adventures through hikes, games, seasonal crafts and activities. Participants actively go outside daily to explore the fields and forests that surround our nature centres. Our goal is to introduce your child to a lifetime of appreciation for the natural world that sustains us all.
Winter Adventure activities may include snow shoeing, crazy carpeting, snow sculpture building and animal tracking (depending on weather conditions).
