Jr. Naturalist Camp - Nature Stewards (Mon-Fri, ages 12-13)

Mon Jul 22 to Fri Jul 26, 2019, Etobicoke, ON

The Humber Arboretum's Jr. Naturalist day camp program is based out of the Centre for Urban Ecology, but campers will spend most of their time outdoors where nature interpretation staff will guide them through specialized activities in the forest, river, meadows, wetlands, gardens, and ponds of the Humber Arboretum. Active and engaging, this program is for curious youth ages 12-13 and focuses on developing skills while exploring the West Humber Valley’s flora and fauna in greater detail.

SESSION THEME

Nature Stewards
Monday July 22 - Friday July 26, 2019

Stewardship can mean many different things, but here at the Arboretum the definition is quite simple—to take care of nature. With all of the magic that this place provides for its visitors, we want to make sure that we are also giving back. As the future leaders of this camp, the Jr. Naturalists will be helping with some big initiatives, like litter cleanups and invasive plant removals, while putting into practice their own leadership skills with the younger campers.

LOCATION

The Humber Arboretum is a roughly 250 acre public garden and conservation area located in the north-west part of Toronto, behind Humber College's North Campus (205 Humber College Blvd, near Finch and the 427). The campus is accessible by multiple transit routes including the TTC, York Region/VIVA, Brampton Transit and MiWay (Mississauga).
