If you child is spending just a little too much time with their various devices, it’s time to sign them up for some outdoor adventure.

Camp Tiffin is a day camp that helps kids ages five to 12 get into nature to learn about and appreciate nature.

The winter program is hosted at the 300-acre Tiffin Centre for Conservation.

The property features a mixture of wetlands, forests, open meadows, and ancient lake beds.

The area is home to a variety of plants and animals.

At Camp Tiffin, kids will enjoy a lot of physical activity and be mentally stimulated as they explore the ever-changing scenery and landscapes.

The programs are fun and creative and are designed to make every day exciting and engaging. The camp’s philosophy is to instill a sense of wonder, appreciation, and respect for the natural world through experiential learning and outdoor exploration.

Kids who are attending should be prepared to arrive with appropriate clothing suitable for outdoor activity and weather conditions. Winter waterproof boots are a must.

They should also bring a lunch and healthy snacks, a water bottle, a winter hat, snow pants, extra socks, and indoor shoes.

Kids should not bring cell phones or other valuables as these have a habit of falling out pockets and will be hard to recover if they are lost in the woods.

The camp will be operating on January 3, 4, 5, and 6, 2023.
