Camp Day 2: July 15 - Move and Groove, ages 6-12 (This day is designed to help children to put the devices down and be free to play and enjoy nature and our green space in a safe inclusive environment!)
Camp Day 3: July 21 - Put your Teenager to Work, ages 12-17 (A camp for older kids to get them out in nature and off their phones! They will learn about the animals who call Happy Tails home, and what it takes to care for so many critters. Teenagers will learn the value of hard work and working as a team!)
Camp Day 4: July 30 - Indigenous Day, ages 6-12 (This day is all about Indigenous culture. Through story telling and music, we will explore the extraordinary lives of our Indigenous peoples. Kids will learn some Anishinaabe language and will explore the forests and meadows. We have invited an Indigenous Leader to guide us. The focus of this camp is on nature and our connection to everything around us.)
Camp Day 5: August 18 - It’s All About the Animals, ages 6-14 (Children will spend all day with an animal focus. We will discuss the similarities between the animals they have at home and those that live on the sanctuary. All of our camps are outdoors so there will be a focus on health and the environment. If you have an animal lover, they will love this camp day!)
Camp Day 6: August 27 - Creativity Though Stories, Music & Art, 6-12 (Children express themselves in many ways. If you have a creative child, they will love this camp day. Your child will be immersed in various art forms including music, story telling, painting and crafts. Like all our camps, this will be a unique outdoor experience.
Our camps are a smash hit as they are designed to appeal to all kinds of kids – the artsy kiddos, the animal lovers, the busy kids, the quest for knowledge kids and kids who just love to play!
