​​Camp Tiffin to offer strike camp during school closures

Strike camp 2022

Strike Camp Tiffin is full. 

In support of families affected by school closures, if schools are closed past Friday November 4, Camp Tiffin will be open starting Monday, November 7, 2022.  ​

Camp Tiffin is located at the 300+ acre Tiffin Centre for Conservation in 10 minutes outside of Barrie, Innisfil and Angus, featuring a mixture of wetlands, forests, open meadows and ancient lake beds. These areas are homes for many plants and animals!


​​​Adopted from our traditional summer camp program, this special edition of Camp Tiffin encourages outdoor exploration, guided excursions in the forest fueled by student interest. Every day will be guided by student inquiry, seasonal changes, and weather and program availability.

Some things we will be doing at camp include: Hiking, geo​caching, nature games, shelter building and wilderness survival.​​


Each program will require a minimum number of 6 campers to run. If capacity isn't reached, we will cont​act you for a refund.​​

Why attend Camp Tiffin?​

At NVCA, we believe in fostering a sense of wonder, appreciation and respect for the natural world through experiential learning and outdoor exploration. Stepping into nature has been proven to provide health benefits such as: increased energy and immunity, increased weight loss and fitness, increased Vitamin D production, and reduced risk of diabetes, heart attacks, and cancer.
