Nature Links Day Camp
Registration for 2017 program will begin April 1, 2017. Prices may change from 2016.
Children 7 to 13 can join in summer fun, exploring and learning about the great outdoors in Belleville and Picton. Week-long day camps are offered for select weeks in July and August.
For over 20 years Quinte Conservation has been offering quality day camp experiences to local youth through summer camp programs. The Nature Links Day Camp program offers children a fun, active and outdoor summer experience at Potter's Creek Conservation Area near Belleville or Macaulay Mountain Conservation Area near Picton.
Campers gain knowledge and increased awareness and appreciation of our natural world through hands-on outdoor expeditions, nature games and crafts. The outdoor camp setting and structure provide children with a platform for exploration and discovery while inspiring respect of others and the natural world.

Nature Links Day Camp runs Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm at a cost of $150 during select weeks. You will require extended hours if you will be dropping your child off before 8:50am or picking up your child after 4:10pm. Extended hours, from 8am to 5pm, are available for an additional fee of $25. The charge applies whether you require extended hours in the morning, afternoon or both.
