Nature Camps at Claremont

UPDATE: TRCA 2020 Summer Camps

Posted Thursday, May 21, 2020

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority’s (TRCA) leadership have spent the last two months talking to experts about the constantly evolving landscape in which we are operating. It has become abundantly clear that TRCA’s in-person program offerings cannot realistically be delivered in the current COVID-19 environment, as our number one concern remains the health and safety of our staff and participants.

While we have not yet received public health guidelines from the government for the safe operation of day camps in Ontario, TRCA leadership have determined that the anticipated future restrictions would materially impact our ability to provide TRCA’s signature level of care that our campers deserve and have come to expect.

TRCA’s has a low-risk threshold when it comes to the well-being of our participants. Erring on the side of health and safety for all the right reasons, social distancing creates too many challenges for our dedicated staff to overcome in order to appropriately care for your children.

This announcement is obviously difficult for all those involved, as we can’t imagine a summer without children running around our facilities enjoying the stimulating programming put on by our staff. However, we do know that we are making the right decision, as health and well-being remains our number one priority in these trying times.

All registrants affected by cancelled programming will be receiving a full refund in the coming weeks.

We encourage families to take part in TRCA’s #AtHomeWithNature series on Facebook and other virtual programming, including cultural and education offerings, which are all listed on our event calendar.


Give your kids an incredible outdoor adventure at Claremont Nature Centre, located on a beautiful 160-hectare property in Durham Region. We offer a wide variety of immersive wilderness experiences designed to engage young minds and inspire creativity.

Please read our cancellation policy:

Written notification of a cancellation must be received. Cancellations made at least four weeks before the start of your session will receive a refund of 90% of the fees. Cancellation made within a four-week period will not receive a refund. There is no refund for camp days missed.

Claremont Nature Centre is located at 4290 Westney Rd N, Goodwood, ON L0C 1A0.

Claremont camps focus on the individual while helping develop a deep connection with nature and prioritizing skill-based learning. With the support of our experienced camp counselors, campers will learn how to build shelters and fires, practice their identification skills and search for wild edibles in the forest.

Our limited camp registration allows us to follow the passions of the group and support your child’s interests through custom learning.

NOTE: Parents will drop off youngsters on Sunday afternoon, and pick up the following Saturday morning at the Claremont Nature Centre; Friday night pick-up option is available by request.
