Discovery Camps are about fun, education and respect set in one of the most biologically diverse natural areas in Canada. We strive to provide hands-on, environmental-based programs that suit the ages, needs and interests of our participants. These award-winning programs feature hikes, games, crafts, activities and daily explorations of ecologically significant nature sanctuaries covering over 1000 hectares of wetlands, fields and forests. Our goal is to introduce your child to a lifetime of respect and appreciation for the natural world that sustains us all.
