​​Birthday Parties at Tiffin

Take the Party Outside!!

The Tiffin Centre for Conservation offers exciting outdoor activities and learning opportunities to make your child's birthday party fun and memorable!

From snowshoeing to geocaching to scouting for wildlife, our parties combine a fun outdoor experience with an appreciation of the natural world here at the beautiful 300+ acre Tiffin Centre. Our educators will lead party guests in the program of your choice, then you can use our party room to share food, games and other party fun under your own supervision.

Party Programs

While the following programs are suggested, we'll work with you to plan a party around your child's specific interests. Note that all programming takes place outside, so have your guests come prepared to for the weather!

Suitable for All Ages:

  • Predator & Prey - This role playing game helps kids learn about predator/prey relationships and how animals survive in the wild
  • Life in the Pond - Kids dip-net for pond creatures and investigate their findings
  • Wildlife Detectives - Hunt for signs of animals and learn how they adapt to the environment
  • “Lost in the Woods” Wilderness Skills - Learn valuable life skills and how to prepare for outdoor adventure

For younger children (3 to 6):

  • Nature Discovery Hike
  • Animal Amble - Party guests travel with a leader to find animal pictures along a well-marked trail. They will match and record which animal they see at each station…a fun scavenger hunt that helps develop basic map work.
