The Our Kids review of Earthbound Kids

 

Earthbound Kids is the brainchild of Carol Norton, a long-time educator and co-founder of All About Kids, now operating locations throughout the GTA. THe camps extend the work of those programs, with the intention of getting kids into nature, and working together around a range of camp tasks. One of the draws for families is that it offers a full range of traditional camp activities, yet within a day camp. There’s a high counsellor-camper ratio, top-notch facilities, as well as strong programming that runs from watching the ants go by, to campcraft, to equestrian programs. Throughout, all the activities are offered to grant children a sense of mastery, to exercise their curiosity, and grow social skills in a natural, play-based setting set apart from the bustle―and the screens―of city life.

Reviews & Testimonials

  • Earthbound Kids Day Camp
    anonymous — Parent

    Earthbound camp is the most fantastic place for my kid. She loves every minute of it. I'm thrilled that she spends her time actively outdoors in such a caring and nurturing environment. The staff is caring and enthusiastic. It's easy to see that they all care about the well being of the kids - from the enthusiastic greetings in the morning to the hugs and encouragement that the kids get all day. Lucy was very helpful sorting out our registration and finding lost items. Julia was very encouraging and made each day fun - my kid wrote about how much she admired her on her first day back to school. Alyssa was (and continues to be) a positive influence on my child, building her self-esteem and confidence. I am thankful for Earthbound camps and the positive impact you all have on my kid.

  • Thanks for your support
    P.L. — Parent

    I just wanted to share that my son had an incredible time at Camp Treetop. I was nervous about his first camp experience but everyone worked hard to meet his specific needs and go out of their way so that he loved every day. I also felt at ease that at any time I could reach someone at the camp, that there was a nurse available etc. We will be back next summer!

  • Highly Recommend
    anonymous — Parent

    You have a fantastic camp program and excellent staff. My kids loved their time at your camp. We will be back, and we’re recommending it to others, as it was recommended to me.

    D.D, .my son is high functioning Autistic and had ADHD... And he loved being around the animals. We thank you for understanding him and being patient with him. It's really important that staff be trained on Autistic and ADHD children. We thank you to the girls in his group this year for understanding him! It means so much! He looks forward to next summer!

Kids and Trees... It’s Only Natural​

At Earthbound, we believe that everyone, regardless of age, benefits from spending time in nature.  For children, the importance cannot be overstated.  

After many years in Early Childhood Education, with much time spent inside the classroom talking about trees and the forest, Carol Norton, co-founder of Earthbound Kids had the idea to bring her school age children to the family tree farm for a week long outdoor experience. 10 years later Earthbound Kids has grown to over 200 children per week and countless visiting schools, many of whom who have invited us to green their school yards. 

When we created Earthbound Kids parents jokingly asked us if they could come to camp with their kids. They loved the experience.

So we’ve created a place for the whole family. Earthbound Farm & Country House is a place to learn together, play together and be together.

As our mission has always been, we’re obsessively passionate about letting kids be kids and exploring nature. When people feel connected with the outdoors they’ll be more likely to care for it.
