Waterloo Region Summer Camps

Waterloo Camp registration is now open!







We are partnering with the City of Waterloo again in 2021to offer Focus on Nature camps for 4 weeks in July and 2 weeks in August. The number of campers is limited due to Covid health protocols. Registration is through the Active Waterloo site.

Our camps are a great opportunity for young photographers aged 7 to 12 to develop their skills while exploring all the natural beauty that the Waterloo Region 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 area; 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 runs from 8 am to 5 pm each day. 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 week before camp.

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