Fun and Learning at Camp

Campers on Low Ropes CourseHillside Nature Camp is an exciting and vibrant camp running in the month of July, based in the soon to be Rouge National Urban Park in Scarborough, Ontario. Each week campers connect with nature, exploring the surrounding woods and wetlands in a safe and fun environment. Children participate in various activities including: arts and crafts, visits from guest speakers, co-operative games, field trips and weekly cook-outs around the campfire. One day each week, the camp travels to other conservation areas and parks. Whether it is for one week or more, your child should prepare for an adventure to remember!
