Hamilton Summer Camp

Hamilton camps have not yet been established. Please write to caitlin(at)focusonnature.ca to indicate your interest in being notified of Focus on Nature camps in the coming year.



The planned activities include short lessons about visual design and basic camera controls; guided photo field excursions around the natural areas; and time to edit photos and make slideshows using the program called Picasa. We will have a showing of camper’s slideshow for all parents to attend at the end of the week.

Our camps are a great opportunity for students, aged 7 to 13, to develop their photography skills while exploring all the natural beauty of the local area.  We encourage the young photographers to be visual artists, to see the beauty in the details of nature and learn how to capture it with their cameras.

Payment can be made by Interac transfer to payments(at)focusonnature.ca (use ‘photos’ as password) or by cheque to Focus on Nature, PO Box 1601, Guelph, ON, N1H 6R7. Registration will not be confirmed until payment has been received. We can refund fees in full up to 30 days before camp starts. After that, we can still refund if we have a camper on a waiting list.

Campers should bring their own drinks, snacks and a lunch each day, and be dressed for the weather. Cameras and laptops will be provided but campers may bring their own as well. (No phones, tablets or chromebooks, please!)

As space is limited, I encourage you to register as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please email Caitlin Pace: caitlin(at)focusonnature.ca

And if you know of others who might be interested in our Summer Camps, please pass this on.

Thanks for considering Focus on Nature’s Summer Camps!
