There are still spots available for March Break Adventure Day Camp at nature centres in Cambridge and Brantford.

There is already a waiting list for the camp at Laurel Creek in Waterloo and the Guelph Lake camp is nearly full.

Camp activities Mar. 13 to 17 may include snow shoeing, snow sculptures, animal tracking, feeding the chickadees and campfires. Activities are adjusted to the weather, but participants go outside daily to explore the fields and forests that surround the nature centre. There are also lots of nature-themed activities, crafts and adventures. 

The day camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Early drop-off and late pick-up options are available free of charge between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The camps are operated by the Grand River Conservation Authority and will introduce kids to a lifetime of appreciation for nature and the outdoors through hands-on activities.

The fun, educational and excitement-filled days are designed specifically for kids ages 6 to 11. 

Registration for the week is $190 per child or $45 per day. Online registration is fast and easy at
