March Break Day Camp

Daily Themes

Each day the children will explore the outdoors and learn about life in the Rouge. Crafts, activities and games will help bring each topic to life.

Monday: Hibernators, Migrators and Winter residents

While many of our local animals slumber all around us during the winter months, we have other new and exciting guests that visit us from the far north, that we will discover. Learn the tips and tricks of winter field ecologists use to discover nature in winter. We will also think about some of our birds, bats and insects that are vacationing down south for the winter months, while we watch, study and help some of our local friends get through the winter months by helping to prepare a winter feast.  


Tuesday: Climate Change

The world is changing all around us all of the time, we will spend the day learning about the world’s changing climate, how this affects nature and our own live, and how that is connected to the weather that gets me all wet on the way to school or work. Conduct climate experiments and help us discover ways to solve the climate crisis as a true climate scientist.


Wednesday: Species at Risk

We have so many plants and animals that need your help. Learn about who they are, discover where they live, and help us plan and construct habitats that will help them survive for future generations to learn about and enjoy. Empower the children to become wildlife conservation specialists with their new found passions.


Thursday: Salmon

Salmon are more than great sushi. There are many different kinds of salmon and they all have incredible life stories from the ocean, lakes and rivers. Study baby salmon up close and learn about the river in winter. Help us find some of the most vital and rare insect food sources at this time of year.


Friday: Winter Outdoor Survival

Learning to survive the winter requires a specialized skill set that we will learn about together. Working as a team is always easier but you will also learn to survive the elements on your own. Learn how to survive the stress of realizing you are lost in the wilderness, learn to find food and water and property preparation techniques, learning how to construct and survival shelter and how to gather fire starting materials and actually get your fire going … there are a few tricks we can teach you.
