The Goodrich-Loomis Nature Camp crew is back and preparing for summer 2011. ‘Zephyr’ and ‘Coral’ are returning this year with ‘River’, a great new addition to the team. With the summer schedule nearing completion, this year is stacking up to be another fun filled nature adventure. Each week campers will be exploring something new from the local wildlife, bugs, reptiles and birds, to Cold Creek’s cool water, Goodrich-Loomis’ many trees and Ontario’s endangered species.

To further engage and excite this summer’s campers, weekly guest speakers include: Hawk Guy, Lisa the Busy Bee Keeper, The Benthic Crew, Indian River Reptile Zoo, Colin the Conservation Officer and his K9 Companion, The Paddling Puppeteer, Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre and Craig the Water Witcher.
To keep camp fun and interesting we have brought back the favourite, tried and true games from years past as well as some brand new games, activities and crafts to give campers a new adventure and experience!
