Nature Day Camps

Nature Professional Activity (PA) Day Camps at Morrison Dam Conservation Area

We are excited to offer Nature PA Day Camps for the first four professional activity days for the Avon Maitland District School Board and the Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Campers will explore and discover the natural world through active outdoor play. This program is ideal for young people who love being outdoors, who enjoy hiking and exploring, and who like to get their hands dirty!

Programs proceed rain, snow, or shine. Please be sure to dress your child appropriately for the weather as we will be outdoors for most of the activities. Indoor programs will be run in the case of severe inclement weather such as heavy rain, thunderstorms, snowstorms, or high winds.

Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until camp is full and can be dropped off or mailed to Ausable Bayfield Conservation’s Administration Centre Office (71108 Morrison Line), east of Exeter, or you can register online. 

Once your registration and payment have been received, a confirmation package and receipt will be emailed to you. 

Space is limited, so register today!
