Riverwood Conservancy offering nature-themed camps for kids impacted by teachers' strike


The Riverwood Conservatory has announced they will be offering one-day camps for students that will be home from school during the on-going job action from Ontario’s teachers’ unions.

The camps will be lead by staff who lead Education Naturally, a nature-focused program for elementary school students.

Known as Day Camp Naturally, the program will be offered on days when the job action impacts Peel District School Board and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board elementary schools, and is open to students in grades one through five.

The camp will offer outdoor activities designed to allow students to further their connection to their local environment such as hiking, playing nature-focused games, and crafting—all activities will be weather-permitting and in the event of inclement weather, activities will take place indoors.

Camps will run from 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m., and will cost $70 per child per day, and parents can drop their kids off at MacEwan Field Station at 4190 Riverwood Park Lane. Accommodations for drop-offs and pick-ups beyond regular hours are also available.

Currently, camps are scheduled for January 31, February 4, February 6, and February 7.
