Monday March 13 - Mammal Monday

This STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) based day will have campers exploring the many mammals who choose to adapt to the frosty conditions of our forest. Campers will use their investigative skills to look for life in the forest, discover the science behind winter adaptations, and see how climate change is impacting our many mammal friends.
 

Tuesday March 14 - Trailblazing Tuesday

Do you have what it takes to blaze our trails and survive winter in Ontario? Campers will build winter fires and shelters, learn how to navigate with a map or compass and try out some archery to hone in on their survival skills

Wednesday March 15 - Winter Birds Wednesday

Flocking, feeding, and chirping, several birds adapt to the Winter weather to survive the cold while others migrate. Those that brave the winter spend majority of their time acquiring food to stay alive. Campers will help support the Winter birds by making bird feeders, interacting with the birds and actively participating in lessons that demonstrate the relationships and behaviours between and among species of birds.

Thursday March 16 - Throwback Thursday

Step back in time and explore the history of the village of Glen Elgin. Campers will learn how our ancestors lived in the winter by making maple syrup, working at the blacksmith shop and exploring our heritage buildings

Friday March 17 - Fantastic Friday

Spring is right around the corner, and this is something to celebrate! Our campers will finish off their week frolicking in the forest, tie dying an item of their choosing, and participating in fantastic fun and games!
