​​​Camp Tiffin "Explorers" Camp


Our traditional Camp Tiffin program, now called "Explorers Camp" is a summer day camp that will enhance your child's knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the natural world and our amazing planet. 

For this October, the programming will be alterted to be more suitable for the fall. 

This exciting program offers hands-on activities in which young explorers discover the variety of species and spaces at our 300+ acre Tiffin Centre for Conservation. 

Activities include canoeing, wilderness skills, scientific investigations, crafts, drama and interactive games with a focus on the environment and learning about nature. Each week there will be a special theme day!

Our camp is designed for children 5-12 years of age. Children are grouped by age and activities are adaptable to children of all abilities.​
