What will my child be doing at day camp?
The Burns Bog Conservation Society’s summer day camps are carefully planned so that your child will learn about aspects of nature while having fun! Each day there is a range of activities which include crafts, experiments, demonstrations, games, and team-building activities which all engage the imagination. Special guests may visit for presentations, and bring along live animals, touchable displays, and fun activities to help reinforce ideas in each weekly theme.
We pride ourselves on our small camper to staff ratio, which means your children will be well-supervised at all times! Our friendly camp counsellors all hold Standard First Aid Certificates or higher, passed a criminal record check, and have experience working with children and youth.
I am impressed with your quality day camps. This is the second year my son has participated and he is already talking about signing up next year. As a parent, the camp is excellent value and has infused my son and our family with a deep love and appreciation of Burns Bog.
