Animal Adventures Camp (4 - 5 years only)

Whether you look to the sky, water or ground, you can find animals of all shapes, sizes and colour. During Adventures with Animals Camp  we’ll  put on our explorer hats to learn more about animals that we may see everyday, and also discover new types of animals that we may have never heard of before. Let’s walk about our parks to find as many frogs and birds as we can or maybe dress up like our favourite animal! Most importantly you’ll come away from this camp with a better understanding of how you can be a better friend and neighbour to the animals that live among us.

Choose Your Own Adventure Camp (4 - 12 years)

Once upon a time at a summer camp not so far away, a group of children embarked on an epic journey filled with excitement and friendship.

 

In this camp, inspired by Choose Your Own Adventure books, children will work as a group to overcome difficulties to reach Home, using their imagination to interpret clues and cross hurdles, from obstacle courses to dragon lairs. Over the course of the week, children will choose their roles, customize their symbols and tools for the journey, and go on their adventure, sharing the Life Points and treasure they gain along the way. The adventure will be a three-part journey, taking them on routes in Brantwood Park and on the river path, to Home in Springhurst Park.

 

Choose your own adventure camp provides an excellent opportunity for children to express their creativity, build their confidence and develop leadership skills. With a variety of activities, there is sure to be something of interest for everyone in this camp.

  5. Foody Friday: Food is not only something that can keep you healthy and strong but it can also be fun! Today, we’ll talk about the different food groups and look at some easy snacks you can make by yourself or with a parent.
