February 28, 2020

Calling all nature enthusiasts!  Does your child love outdoor adventures and exploring the natural world?  Sign them up for the Raisin Region Conservation Authority’s (RRCA) March Break Nature Camp at Cooper Marsh Conservation Area! 

The RRCA is once again hosting a March Break Nature Camp from March 16-20 for children aged 6-11.  Our highly skilled team of technicians and biologists will share their passion and knowledge of natural sciences with the help of daily special guests. 

“We have an exciting schedule of activities planned for the campers!  Activities range from science experiments to arts and crafts, taking place indoors and outdoors,” said Jessica Herrington, RRCA Environmental Technician.  The camp promises a fun, engaging, active and memorable March Break experience.

Campers can register by day or for the entire week.  Activities will generally coincide with a daily theme: March 16 - Winter Wildlife; March 17 - Maple Madness; March 18 - Nature Explorers; March 19 - Wilderness Survival; and March 20 - Art & Nature. 

Campers will snowshoe, learn about winter survival, explore Cooper Marsh, learn to identify animals by sight and sound, sample maple taffy, dissect owl pellets, and much more! “We are excited to announce there will be a live bird demonstration on Friday, March 20.  We will be visited by Indigo the kestrel from Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Centre!” added Herrington.

Cooper Marsh Conservation Area is located at 20020 County Road 2, South Lancaster.  Camp hours are 9am to 4pm with pre/post-care options available for an additional fee.  The camp has a limited capacity; registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserve your child’s spot today! Registration and camp details can be found at rrca.on.ca.
