Summer Nature Day Camps

Summer Nature Day Camps at Morrison Dam Conservation Area

If you have any questions, please either call or email diszczuk(at)abca.on.ca. (Click on staff contacts page).

Location: 

Morrison Dam Conservation Area at 71108 Morrison Line, just two kilometres east of Exeter.

Dates:  

Two summer nature day camps were held in 2016:

  • July 11-15, 2016 for ages 6 to 9   
  • July 25-29, 2016 for ages 10 to 12. Wonder, Investigate, Learn, and Discover or WILD Nature Camp. It included an overnight experience on the Thursday night in tents at Morrison Dam Conservation Area.

On March 23, we decided to offer a second week of day camp from July 18-22 for ages 6 to 9.  On May 10, due to insufficient numbers, we had to cancel the day camp during July 18-22.

Registration are downloaded from the website or can be picked up at Ausable Bayfield Conservation's Administrative Office at 71108 Morrison Line during regular business hours.

Please use one form per child you wish to register. You can mail in the completed registration form with payment or drop it off in person at:

Cancellation Policy:  Any registration cancellations prior to the start of camp will receive a 40 per cent refund of registration fee.

Send a Child to Camp:

If you would like to help to financially help support a child who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend, we are encouraging community organizations, individuals, and businesses to consider sponsoring a child

In order to do this, we are encouraging people from the community to find a child/children that would benefit from going to Ausable Bayfield Conservation's summer nature camps and financially support them. Ask the family if they are interested in sending their child/children to a local summer camp and if so have the family fill out the registration form and the sponsor will provide registration fee as their donation.
