Our Jr Naturalist Summer Science Camps are week-long summer day camp programs that get kids out in nature exploring, collecting, hiking, canoeing, playing, learning.


We have daily themes related to wetlands, wildlife, ecosystems and processes.  Learn in a fun and supportive environment!



2022 Jr Naturalist Program Schedule

We will be running the Jr Naturalist Program in the summer of 2022!


We have created a COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan as well as specific policies for the Jr Naturalist program. We want to make sure that all visitors, program participants and staff feel safe and comfortable when onsite with us.


We will be offering one camp a week with a maximum of 12 kids. We feel that this will allow us to incorporate our health and safety policies and provide the best and safest experience for the kids. Our main focus is on getting the kids outside (as it usually is), which, according to health authorities, is a low risk activity in regards to the spread of COVID-19.


If you have a child that is interested in attending a camp, please follow the steps below to register your child(ren).  Thank you!


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask.


To register your child(ren), please follow the following steps:

  1. Email (preferred) or call us at 250-402-8661 to reserve a spot(s) in the session(s) of your choice
  2. Once we confirm with you that there is a spot for your child, we will email you the detailed participation, waiver and release agreement as well as payment options
