Reptile Camp has been cancelled for the 2021 season. Please check our website and social media channels for future updates. We hope to see our campers again soon!
Do you have a reptile and amphibian or nature-loving child? Are you looking for a fun day camp for them to go to this summer? You’ve come to the right spot!
Ages 7-12 (younger by special exception)
Our camp days and schedules revolve around the campers and their preferences, implementing an unstructured play and learning approach. Depending on interest, campers may spend more time outside exploring, inside looking after animals, or otherwise. We make sure everyone is given personalized attention and has a blast at Reptile Camp!
During their week at Reptile Camp, campers will:
learn about reptiles, amphibians, and more
have hands-on experiences with our collection of native and exotic reptiles
explore pond and forest habitats
catch some cool creatures
learn the importance of respecting and conserving nature
feed their favourite reptiles
make crafts to bring home
Leader in Training
Our Leader in Training (LIT) program offers experience and guidance in the world of summer camp, leadership, recreational programming, and animal care! It is our goal that LITs will add to their experience, skillset, and confidence in order to excel in future leadership positions.
In addition to camper activities, our LITs will:
design and lead an activity for the other campers (ie. craft or game)
gain knowledge of organizing activities, safety, equipment use, record keeping, first aid, and more
learn leadership and planning skills
participate in more advanced animal care with our Animal Care staff
*note that it is recommended, although not mandatory, that LITs sign up for 2 weeks
