Summer Calendar 2013



This summer at The Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve there are lots of exciting camps and programs! The reserve, set in an idyllic natural environment, is looking forward to a summer filled with good old fashioned outdoor fun! Instructors Cynthia Berg and John LeFlock have designed programs that will both challenge and entertain children aged five to twelve.

Running July 22 – 26, is our Mission: Explore Camp, geared towards ages 8 – 10, and from August 12 – 16 is Mission: Seek for adventurers ages 5 – 7. These camps run from 9:30am – 12:30pm for the week, and will include guided exploration walks, crafts, and games pertaining to each day’s special topic. Kids will have the opportunity to burn some energy and learn about our natural world all while having bucket loads of fun!

Art camps this year, will be taking place July 15 – 19, July 29 – August 2 and August 12 – 16. Camps will run from 9:30am – 12:30pm every day of the week for ages 8 – 12. In these classes, students will use a variety of media to create art based on both live animals as well as their imaginations. Students will have the opportunity to explore the trails in the area and paint and draw their findings.

We are also holding a number of art workshops, including Family Art Workshops every month for the whole family to work together!

No experience is necessary for any of our camps. For more information, or to register for any of these classes, visit, or contact Caroline via e-mail here or by phone Mon-Fri 9-4 at 604-823-6603.
