Waterloo March Break Camps



During March Break 2019, Focus on Nature will be conducting two 2-day photography day camps at Camp Heidelberg, plus an additional one-day Advanced Photography Workshop for those who have previously attended our March Break or a school workshop. Campers may also come for the full five days, if they wish. You can register online here.

The first camp will be March 11 & 12; the second camp will be March 13 & 14; and the Advanced Workshop will be March 15.

Our camps are a great opportunity for students, aged 8 to 14, to develop their photography skills while exploring all the natural beauty to be found at Camp Heidelberg.  We encourage the young photographers to be visual artists, to find the wonder in the details of nature and learn how to capture it with their cameras.

The planned activities include short lessons about visual design and basic camera controls; guided photo field excursions around Camp Heidelberg; and time to edit photos and make slideshows using the program called Picasa. We plan to end the second day with student slideshows to which parents are invited to attend.

Our Advanced Photography Workshop will give participants additional technical skills and guided practical experience that will further enhance their abilities as young photographers.

The fee for a 2-day camp is $110.  The Advanced Photography Workshop fee is $55 or the full week is $275. Each day runs from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. Extended hours for early drop-off and late pick-up can be arranged. Please use our online registration form to register your child. For more than one child, please repeat the registration submission.

Payment can be made by Interac transfer to <payments@focusonnature.ca> or by cheque to Focus on Nature, PO Box 1601, Guelph, ON, N1H 6R7. Registration will not be confirmed until payment has been received.

Campers should bring their own drinks, snacks and a lunch each day, and be dressed for the weather. Cameras and laptops will be provided.

As space is limited, I encourage you to register as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please email me at natalie@focusonnature.ca.

And if you know of others who might be interested in our March Break camps, please pass this on.

Thanks for considering Focus on Nature’s March Break camps!
