The Frontenac Arch Biosphere (FAB) Foundation and Network is expanding into the Brockville area for eight unique weeks of camp for children aged five to 11, with a leader in training program available for 12 and 13-year-olds.

The nature camp, as described by program manager Kelly McGann, focuses heavily on play-space learning.

“(The campers) are learning about where they live and what the importance of their role in that environment is,” said McGann. “The idea is exposing people to where they live, to the different elements of the environment that they are living in.”

The camp will be at Mac Johnson on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Lyn Valley Conservation Area Tuesday and Thursday each week.
