COVID-19 Update: updated March 22, 2021
We are very happy to announce we are planning to run our Summer Day Camp program this coming summer. It was very disappointing to cancel last summer and we appreciate everyone's understanding. So many experiences and opportunities have been taken away from our kids this past year making us especially proud to offer this enriching program once again.
For Summer 2021, the camp will be offered for 8 weeks, from the week of July 5 to the week of August 23. The cost will be $180/week ($160 for 4-day Civic Holiday week). Families can choose from any of the weeks provided. There will be no single day registrations this year.
I am planning to open registration for camps next week, and will send another email when this goes online. We are able to run this program within every colour of the COVID-19 framework except grey (lockdown), thus it seems unlikely that the program will need to be cancelled. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Returning this summer is our Nature & You Day Camp! This camp will operate out of North Bay Nordic Ski Club at 630 Northshore Rd. This phenomenal area provides the perfect playground for a whole plethora of outdoor, nature-based activities and games. Every activity is hands-on and geared toward getting kids outside to explore the outdoors in a fun, safe environment. The camp is run by Nature & You Outdoor Education staff, who have many years of experience working with children in an outdoor setting. Although many of the activities are outdoors and active, the days will also be structured with numerous low key activities and opportunities for food and rest to help kids pace themselves throughout the long, hot summer days.
Day Camp is open to ages 6-11 and Day Camp Jr. is open to ages 4-5 (going into JK or SK). Scheduled programming runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm, with drop-off and pick-up any time between 8:00am and 4:45pm. The cost for either program is $180/Week ($160 for 4-day civic holiday week). Participants are expected to bring their own nut-free lunch. Additional afternoon snacks will be provided.
Program Highlights Throughout Each Week: Each day also includes outdoor games, and nature crafts. These are a rough outline of programs week, and this may change depending on weather and the group's interests.
