Nature Day Camp

*Registration for 2017 Coming Soon*

The Kortright Summer Nature Day Camp is for children 4-14 years of age who like nature and spending time outdoors. Each week of camp has a new theme so you can come for a week or stay for the summer.

New in 2017, Kortright Nature Day Camp is offering Kinder Camp  for 4 & 5 year old children. The Kinder Camp program has been designed with lower staff to camper ratios, rest breaks and age appropriate activities to give our youngest campers the best experience possible.
