Country Fun Nature Camp is an environmental day camp located at the beautiful Tucker House estate in Rockland, Ontario. Children from across Ottawa and Rockland benefit from healthy outdoor play and learn about caring for the earth, themselves, and each other in a supportive inclusive faith-based setting. Leadership is provided by young adult directors and youth volunteers and leaders-in-training with mentorship from experienced environmental educators. Programming focuses on learning about care of all creation, and appreciating the natural beauty and local history of the Tucker House property. A free camp bus brings children from across Ottawa out to the Tucker House estate. All donations directly support camper subsidies for children in need, youth training and volunteer honorariums, camp materials and snacks, and offset costs for shelters, bus, and swim time.
Sample activities include:
-- eco-games in small and large groups
-- inclusive faith-based stories teaching us how to care for the earth and one another
-- outdoor environmental learning through nature walks, special guests, and exploring our forests, wetland, and meadow
-- healthy snacks from our organic gardens and home-baked goodies
-- arts, crafts, sports, and songs!
