Jr. Naturalist Camp - Survival Skills (Mon-Fri, ages 12-13)    Mon Aug 19 to Fri Aug 23, 2019, Etobicoke, ON

The Humber Arboretum's Jr. Naturalist day camp program is based out of the Centre for Urban Ecology, but campers will spend most of their time outdoors where nature interpretation staff will guide them through specialized activities in the forest, river, meadows, wetlands, gardens, and ponds of the Humber Arboretum. Active and engaging, this program is for curious youth ages 12-13 and focuses on developing skills while exploring the West Humber Valley’s flora and fauna in greater detail.

SESSION THEME

Survival Skills
Monday August 19 - Friday August 23, 2019

Shelter, fire, water, food—these things are crucial to any survival situation. In this final week of camp, the Jr. Naturalists will learn about making natural shelters, tying tarps, fire safety, friction fire, and how to find sources of food and drinking water in nature. Are you ready for the challenge?

LOCATION

The Humber Arboretum is a roughly 250 acre public garden and conservation area located in the north-west part of Toronto, behind Humber College's North Campus (205 Humber College Blvd, near Finch and the 427).
