Toronto and Region Conservation Authority's (TRCA) Nature Camp at Tommy Thompson Park offers the opportunity to get outside and learn about nature in Tommy Thompson Park. Your child will love spending their days outside exploring Toronto’s Urban Wilderness!

This summer we’re excited to continue with themed camp weeks! From artists to bird-lovers, you’ll find what you’re looking for. Among other activities, campers will also have the chance to experience riding our multi-seater quadcycles during camp.

July 4-8 | July 11-15: INCREDIBLE INSECTS... AND MORE

Micro wildlife thrives in Toronto’s wilderness spaces! These are the insects, arachnids, and other tiny creatures who are essential for healthy habitats. During Incredible Insects camps, campers will learn about the insects (and more!) that live among wildflowers, in trees, and even in the water! Using tools like dipnets, magnifying glasses, and microscopes, we’ll take a close look at the Leslie Street Spit’s smaller residents and gain a new appreciation for their incredible diversity.

July 18-22 | July 25-29: ART ON THE SPIT

Let’s get creative! During our Art on The Spit camps, campers will draw inspiration from nature found within Tommy Thompson Park to draw and sketch, create their own ephemeral art, practice photography skills, and more! We’ll hone our artistic skills and learn how to view the natural world from new perspectives.

August 8-12 | August 15-19: BECOME A NATURE EXPERT

There’s always more to discover about the natural world. During our Become a Nature Expert camps, we will focus on learning about Tommy Thompson Park’s flora and fauna (plants and animals). Campers will refine their identification skills and explore the relationships between organisms in their natural communities. We will also give back to nature by performing acts of stewardship, helping the local wildlife thrive! To attend, all you need is a love of nature.

August 22-26 | August 29- September 2: BIRDS IN THE CITY

Tommy Thompson Park is a birding hotspot! During our Birds in the City camps, campers will discover the bird species that call The Spit home. We’ll explore for birds, learn about bird calls, and visit the Bird Research Station to see birds up close before they’re released. Campers will be provided with binoculars and field guides to use during the camp week.
