Learning. Doing. Being!

Camp TreetopCamp Treetop connects children to nature in fun, educational, confidence-building ways. We let hands on experience with plants & animals and the earth itself instil values of respect for the environment. Kids learn and explore as they play with bugs, grow food, get messy and have fun doing all the things they love to do.

It’s an unforgettable outdoor day camp that includes:

  • Athletics – soccer, floor hockey, basketball, baseball
  • Swimming or water play (age and weather dependant)
  • Ziplining, rock climbing and BMX biking on an all-terrain track (program dependent)
  • Archery (ages 8+)
  • Horseback riding & animal care
  • Gardening and cooking
  • All-terrain scootering (ages 6+)
  • Arts & crafts
  • Dance, drumming and drama
  • Outdoor education & science

In this program we offer a wide variety of activities and choice so that each camper can explore their own interests while also being given opportunities to try something new.

These campers are becoming more and more independent and want this independence to shine by taking on greater responsibility and leadership roles.
