Active and engaging, the Arboretum's Jr. Naturalist Camp is for curious youth ages 12-13 and focuses on exploring the West Humber Valley’s flora and fauna in greater detail. Based out of the Centre for Urban Ecology, throughout the summer this camp will explore the many habitats found in the roughly 250 acre Humber Arboretum, an extensive urban greenspace in North Etobicoke.
The Humber River is an incredibly important river in this area—so important that we were named after it! In this week of camp, the Jr. Naturalists will be taking an in-depth look at the different components of Toronto’s largest watershed. With river, pond, and wetland areas right in our backyard to study and explore, campers will become more in touch with our aquatic friends.Who knew that there could be so much wildlife within the city?! This week is all about exploring the different habitats of the Arboretum and learning about the different creatures that call this place home. Campers will learn animal tracking and bird identification skills, and will be conducting studies within the river and ponds.Request information
