Critter Program (Ages 5-9)
The Critter program is for children ages 5 to 9 years old (must be 5 by registered camp week). We seek to balance play and program, allowing campers a week filled with great fun and experiences.
Daily activities include arts and crafts, large group and small group games, nature exploration and outdoor education, paddleboat, swimming, drama, storytelling, and science.
Each week, the program is developed on a theme, highlighted with a special guest or field trip.
Each Thursday, Critters hop onto the school busses and venture out into the community (or beyond) to enjoy very engaging field trips such as journeys to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, or the African Lion Safari in Hamilton.
Critters have the opportunity to venture away from Laurel Creek and are able to enjoy swimming each week, at various indoor and outdoor pools around the region.
Play and exploration
The Critter Program at Camp K hones in on the natural curiosity children have as they gravitate towards an innate desire to explore. Campers will be investigating their world around them through play, creativity and hands on activities.
