We are located at:
A week-long nature adventure program where children will be outdoors: playing, exploring, and having fun! Children will learn valuable outdoor skills, make new friends, and better understand the world around them. Activities will be rooted in nature education and will complement the changes observed in nature in the early stages of spring.
Lunch program available for an additional fee. Throughout the day, there will be access to healthy and filling snacks, with a hot lunch and variety of sides each day.
Limited bussing available for children attending from the Oshawa/Whitby area.

We are located on over 300 spectacular acres along the shores of Lake Scugog. Our property includes cedar groves, old growth hardwood forests, a meadow and protected wetlands including a vibrant swamp and more than 1,000 feet of beautiful shoreline. It is an ideal setting for children to interact with the natural world, and although most of our time is spent outdoors, we do have a variety of indoor spaces available as needed.
Our home base, The Old Barn, is where the day will always start and end with circle time, where lunch is had and where self-guided play is enjoyed. The Old Barn also houses the Nature Museum, a place to display all collected finds from throughout the day at Nature School.
