March Break Camp 2017 is full. Thank You!
Our program gives children aged 4-9 a meaningful, integrated, real-world learning environment. Through play and exploration of the forests and trails of the 600 acre Ignatius Jesuit Centre, children gain a connection and understanding of the natural world and their place in it. The creative process of learning continues inside our beautiful, fully-equipped indoor classrooms and facilities, bringing the outside in.
In addition to the core program, special March Break activities include maple sap collection, making a soup, forest adventure hikes, building a bird house, cooking over a campfire, and building a shelter. These activities are weather dependant.
A delicious three-course lunch and two snacks are freshly prepared from scratch by our chef Drew Steadman in our kitchen. We use primarily organic, seasonal and local ingredients. Our food program introduces children to seasonal vegetables through tasting games, cooking and gardening (starting seeds indoors in March), helping them learn to love healthy foods.
