Waterloo Region Summer Camp


Focus on Nature will offer a week-long nature photography day camp at RIM Park in Waterloo in 2019 but the dates have not yet been set. Please email natalie(at)focusonnature.ca to be notified when registration is open.

It will be a great opportunity for young photographers aged 7 to 12 to develop their skills while exploring all the natural beauty that RIM Park has to offer.  As well as being outdoors each day on guided walks, playing outdoor games and other nature activities, campers will have the chance to edit their images, make a slideshow, and take home some of their best photos.

We encourage the students to be visual artists, to see the beauty in the details of nature and learn how to capture it with their cameras.  The planned activities include short lessons about visual design and camera controls; guided photo field excursions around the Arboretum; a photo-scavenger hunt and building nature sculptures. We’ll learn how to edit photos and make slideshows using the program called Picasa. We plan to end the final day with a group slideshow to which the parents will be invited.

The camp program runs from 9am to 4pm but the doors open at 8am for early drop offs and stay open until 5pm for late pickups.

Campers should bring their own drinks, snacks and a lunch each day, and be dressed for the weather. Cameras and laptops will be provided, though campers may bring their own. More information (directions, etc.) will be sent to you one weeks before camp.

Space is limited, so if you are interested in enrolling your child or have any further questions, please register now or contact me by email at natalie@focusonnature.ca.  And if you know of others who might be interested in our Waterloo Region Summer Camp, please pass this on.
