Summer Camps in Ottawa
2024 Summer camps TBA.
We have a variety of camps available each year: many for ages 4 – 13, and one week in August for ages 7 – 14. All camps are 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Before-camp and after-camp care is also available.
Below is information about our past 2023 camps for examples of the camps we run.
July 3rd – 7th
(Ages 4 – 13) This week is focused on learning about our fur-bearing and feathered forest friends. Campers will learn to see the forest through the eyes of a naturalist, exploring the landscape with a keen sense for the birds and mammals that live among us. We’ll move and play games like mammals, learn the language of the birds, and try to find them on the landscape. Wear your binoculars, bring your field guides, dust off your nature journals, and get ready to discover all the wonders of these amazing creatures! ($390)
July 10th – 14th
(Ages 4 – 13) This week is focused on learning all the amazing things you can do with the versatile gift of the trees: wood! Campers will have the opportunity to learn different methods of creating fire, and will learn how to use all sorts of tools to create anything that their hearts desire. From carving spoons and bows and coal-burning cups, to creating fire by rubbing sticks together, the opportunities for learning are endless. ($390)
July 17th – 21st
(Ages 4 – 13) This week campers will donn their detective hats, equip themselves with magnifying glasses, and attempt to solve a camp-wide mystery. This camp is a modern-day whodunnit where campers will learn how to read the clues of the landscape through the lens of a master tracker. Something fishy is happening in the forest – and it’s up to our Nature Detectives to find out! ($390)
July 24th – 28th
July 31st – August 4th
(Ages 4 – 13) This week will weave storytelling, survival skills and naturalist knowledge into a magical, immersive storyline. Campers will meet fantastical beings like fairies and trolls, build castles and forts, create potions from wild plants, carve magic wands, and so much more. The forest is where we can let our imagination run wild – where anything is possible if you just believe. ($390)
