Spots Still Available for CRCA Nature Explorers Camp

Kingston – Kids who get the chance to participate in summer camps create memories, friendships and lessons that last a lifetime. For nearly 25 years, the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority has hosted its popular Nature Explorers Camps throughout the summer months, offering children between the ages of six and 11 a chance to explore the great outdoors -‘unplugged’- through nature-inspired theme weeks. Camps take place at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area.

Participants will get many opportunities for hands-on learning, as well as spending two of the days each week swimming and playing on the beach at the Gould Lake Conservation Area. The programs will be taught by fully qualitied, well-trained and experienced counsellors, with a ratio of one instructor for every eight campers, meaning lots of chances for one-to-one mentoring and supervision. Each day will be filled with adventures, information and lots of fun, with campers coming home with a greater awareness and connection to the natural world.

The cost is $195 per child for a week, with hours running from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Before and after care is available starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 5 p.m. for an additional charge of $25 per week. For shorter weeks due to statutory holidays, the fee is $156 for a four-day camp.
