Stewardship C​​amp

CampTiffinStewardship.jpg Want to help the environment​? 

In this one-week camp, youth ages 12 – 15 learn-by-doing, working alongside NVCA's professional stewardship staff to stabilize stream banks, remove invasive species, and take on other projects to restore habitat for fish, birds and wildlife.

Campers will spend three days going to the areas in our watershed that need their help. One other day will be at the Tiffin Centre learning about the work they'll be doing in the field. On the Friday, we will be on-site at Tiffin for traditional camp day with games, wilderness survival and a hosted​ campfire cook-out lunch. 

As some work will take place in or around water, campers must be competent swimmers.

C​amp​​ Dates

  • Stewardship Camp Week 1: July 15 – 19

Leadership Camp


Looking to grow your leadership skills? 

​This two-week camp builds the bridge between camper and leader for youth ages 13-15.  

In week 1, youth gain outdoor leadership skills from NVCA’s professional environmental educators.

In week 2, they put those skills to use, serving alongside Camp Tiffin staff as junior counsellors. Week 2 counts toward required high ​school volunteer hours.​

C​amp​​ Dates 

DSC_0240.jpgCamp runs Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. 

  • Choose one of:
    • Leadership Week 1: July 2 – 5
    • Leadership Week 2: Aug 6 – 9​
  • Plus one additional week to volunteer with Explorers Camp (from list above). As we want to make sure each junior leader gets a great experience, we limit the number of volunteers each week. Please pick two weeks (a first and second choice) you would be available to volunteer. Your volunteer week should come after attending the leadership training week.

Registration Fees

  • $195 for the ​two-week program (no discount for those not completing the second week)
