Summer Camp

We believe that regular and extended time in nature has benefits well beyond the educational and environmental aspect. Time spent in nature has a positive effect on the well-being of an individual.

Summer Nature Camp, 2022, will be running this summer from the Grantham Lions Club, 732 Niagara Street, St. Catharines. Camp will take place if permitted based on the COVID climate at the time.

It’s a great location as we’ll be the only group using the building (for the foreseeable future) and it’s within walking distance to Malcolmson Eco Park, Sunset Beach, splash pad as well as other green spaces and parks!

Our programs are designed to create a setting that is naturally inclusive and educational. Our certified teachers and childcare providers are experienced with exceptional learners and alternative education models. Children are given the opportunity to explore, play and learn in a natural space.

Our inquiry-based philosophy combined with the ‘forest school’ model makes Nature School & Education Centre a natural choice for your child’s alternative and/or enriched education.
