Nature Camps are designed for children ages three to seven and offer an opportunity to experience the parks, learn about creepy crawlies, investigate science in nature and play exciting games. (Spring Break / Summer Camps)
We go deeper into the natural world to discover the plants and animals around us, develop naturalist skills, and enjoy outdoor adventures.
Participants learn to observe what's going on around them and through the fun and games become stewards of our environment.
Spring Break Camps
Spring break camps are held in the morning and run for three half-days for $60 per participant.

They take place at Mission Creek Regional Park and the EECO (Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan) for youngsters ages five to seven. Please call for more information (250-469-6139) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Summer Nature Camps
Our camps run in the morning and you can choose a three half-day camp for $60, four half-day camp for $80 or a five half-day camp for $100.
They are held in three regional parks: Mission Creek, Bertram Creek, and the Gellatly Nut Farm.
Children will spend their mornings engaging with the natural world that surrounds them; activities include searching for turtles, making friends with pine trees, and identifying animal habitats. Most importantly, these camps will inspire the beginnings of a life-long appreciation for the environment. Summer Nature Camps are available for two age groups: 3-4 years old, and 5-7 years old.
For details on the times, dates and locations please follow the Regional Parks Guide Information or Registration Information links below.
