Camps and Programming!

TRACKS September 28th PA Day is open for registration!

Sign up your camper to spend the day with TRACKS learning about all things Autumn! We’ll take a hike through the forest to learn how different forest critters are starting to prepare for the winter and how the woods themselves are going through their own changes. We’ll also visit some gardens on-campus to learning about Indigenous food systems, harvesting methods and why certain plants like to stick together.

It will be a day full of what we do best here at TRACKS, combining science with Indigenous knowledges, and it’s bound to be a great time!

Camp details: Friday, September 28th, 9:00am – 3:00pm, Trent University Campus

Ages: 7-12

Price: sliding scale (suggested $40/camper)

Please note we price our camps on a sliding scale in order to be accessible to all families. The suggested price will cover all costs related to your camper. As always, please contact us about about reduced rates for siblings and the availability of full subsidies.

TRACKS is looking for volunteer parent helpers for this PA Day! Parents, please let us know if you are interested in joining us for a day of fun and learning.

CAMP PROGRAMMING is created around a Medicine Wheel framework where each direction is associated with a scientific discipline. Campers are encouraged to build relationships and make linkages between activities such as

  • Traditional skills
  • Teachings with Elders
  • Exploring the woods
  • Canoeing
  • Swimming
  • Water analysis
  • Visiting with turtles
  • Sacred medicines
  • and so much more as our days are packed with guest visits and field trips!

We strive to create an environment of respect and inclusion, where everyone’s perspective is equally valued and we practice deep engagement with Indigenous ways of knowing. While our focus is on creating opportunities for Indigenous youth, we welcome anyone to join our summer programming!

Accessibility is important to us! We welcome all campers to join in the fun. If you have a child with a disability who would like to come to camp, please contact us: we want them to participate and funding may be available for extra support.
