Nature Discovery Ages 6-8


2021 Nature Discovery (Ages 6-8)

$200

Week 1: July 12th-16th
Week 2: August 9th-12th

This camp will introduce the children to the woods, stream and native tree nursery that surround our Nature Center. The campers will delight in learning to use all their senses to understand the natural world, as well as create crafts, tell stories and play games designed to give them a foundation for further inquiry and exploration.

Registration

Registration is processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Registrations will be accepted until each session is full, at which time a waiting list will be available.

favicon 16x16Location

Each session runs Monday through Friday, from 9:00am to 3:00pm, rain or shine. We use our very own Nature Centre, located on the Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead property, as a home base for all of our outdoor activities. Located just 20 minutes east of Charlottetown, the Macphail Woods Nature Centre has a variety of teaching spaces and is surrounded by 140 acres of forest and field. Winding through the property are four trails, a stream and one of the province’s finest remaining examples of our native Acadian forest.
