Primary Camps (Ages 4-8)

Our Primary Camps include the Kinder WOW and Wee WOW programs. These camps offer a lower staff ratio (approx 8:1), and unique activities focused on our youngest friends.

Kinder WOW Camp 

Ages 4–5

Though Kinders may be small in size, we all know they are big in energy, and this camp is a fantastic way for them to burn it off! Kinder WOW camp is a week of fun and adventure in a safe and supportive environment. Campers learn that the outdoors is the perfect place to explore and experiment, and also a great place to make new friends! In small groups, lead by our experienced staff, Kinders get to explore the trails and activity centres of Kelso, Mountsberg, and Crawford Lake.

During your child’s time in Kinder Camp, he or she will be in a small group led by experienced counselors who specialize in working with younger children. Extra attention is given to each child in assisting with sunscreen and bug spray applications, as well as water and bathroom breaks. In Kinder Camp, all activities are done at a slower pace and are catered to the energy levels of the group. Your child will experience a guided introduction to the camp environment and will be encouraged to expand his or her knowledge and skills within natural surroundings. There are daily opportunities to swim, rehydrate, and cool off in all of our parks, and these breaks are scheduled more frequently as temperatures rise. Of course, any specific needs your child may require will be addressed by our highly trained staff.

Offered: Each week

Wee WOW Camp 

Ages 6–8

Ways of the Woods is an exciting place to grow and learn! Wee WOW Campers make the most of summer by exploring our parks, visiting fields and forests, meeting our raptors, going boating, swimming, and so much more! Wee WOW will visit Kelso, Mountsberg, and Crawford Lake.

There is so much to do in the parks of Conservation Halton, and our Wee WOW campers get to experience the best of it! Crawford Lake introduces campers to an authentic Iroquoian village, as well as the distinct ecology of the meromictic lake found onsite. Mountsberg’s interactive barn and raptor center will keep campers engaged when they’re not climbing in the playbarn or exploring Mapletown. The low ropes facility and archery range at Kelso offer opportunities for camper to try new activities in a safe learning environment, and the lake is a great place to swim and cool off on hot days. This camp is non-stop fun and adventure!
