Northern Lights is excited to offer two one week summer camps August 10-14 & August 17-21, 2020.
With a prospector’s tent as our main hub your child will be immersed in the natural world within our 14 acre campus. Our play based environment is interwoven with a balance of engaging games, crafts, skill-building and the arts. The program is for children ages 6-9.
A day at Northern Lights Camp is an environment where children develop a sense of self, engage in active play and foster personal and relational wellbeing.
Our days will be filled with a variety of activities including:
- Hikes in the forest, picnics by the pond, water colour painting, nature based crafts, wetland studies, plant identification, outdoor co-operative and collaborative activities, songs and movement games, free play, story telling.
What to Bring to Camp
- A healthy lunch, snack and water bottle
- Clothes for all weather (sun hat, rain gear, change of clothes)
- Towel and water clothes (daily pond play and sprinkler activities require a change of clothes/bathing suit and a towel)
What to Leave at Home
- Our space is media free so please leave media icon clothing, lunch bags and toys at home
- We are an eco-friendly campus and provide eco friendly bug spray and sunscreen on site for children’s use. Please do not bring aerosol sprays and deet products to camp.
