Jr. Naturalist Camp - Art All Around Us (Mon-Fri, ages 12-13)

Mon Jul 29 to Fri Aug 2, 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

Art All Around Us
Monday July 29 - Friday August 2, 2019

Nature has been a major source of inspiration for artists throughout history. From capturing a landscape in a painting or a photo, to hearing the melody in a bird’s song, art truly is all around us. During this week of camp the Jr. Naturalists will tune in to their inner artist, while also learning some practical bushcraft skills that utilize natural materials, such as carving, basket weaving, and coal burning.

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).
