Give the Gift of Nature to Your Child This Summer

With summer in full swing, the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) invites local parents to give the gift of nature and outdoor education to their children.

Would your child know what to do if he/she were lost in a forest? Would they know how to identify poison ivy? Is your child curious about the natural world? Do they know where turtles go in the winter? All of these questions and many more will be answered when your child attends the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority’s (GRCA) annual Nature Nuts Summer Day Camp in Port Hope.

There are a few spots left in the Amazing Race, Crime Scene Investigation, and Survival Week # 2; all delivered by experienced and enthusiastic Ontario-certified teachers from the Ganaraska Forest Centre. These action-packed camps run from 8:45 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the GRCA’s Millennium Conservation Area. As a bonus, every Friday, campers get to go on a fun field trip that relates to the theme of the week.

“This is the camp for all children, whether they already love spending time in nature or simply want to be more comfortable in the natural world,” says Ryan Goodall, one of the program’s teachers. “We know that children who spend time in nature, gain an appreciation for our planet and become the environmental stewards of tomorrow,” he adds.
