Eco Adventure Camp is a not-for-profit, summer day camp located in the heart of Peterborough, adjacent to King Edward Park.
Our experienced counselors are proud to provide fun and creative programming for kids aged 4 to 12 in a safe, inclusive environment.
The Camp will take place over five weeks in partnership with St. James United Church. Although many of our activities will take place in the Church's large gymnasium, fully-operating kitchen and recently-renovated playroom, the camp is not a faith-based program; all activities follow a strict science-based, environmental curriculum.
St. James United Church offers many programs for families and children throughout the year. Please visit www.stjamesunitedchurch.ca for more information on their services, including their “Lift Off” Summer Vacation Bible Camp.
Monday-Friday | 8:45am-3:30pm.
Until 5:30pm (Only $5/day).
"I work for St. James United Church as the Youth Program Director. My job is to develop and implement fun and exciting programs for children and families throughout the year.
I have four children of my own between the ages of 6 and 17. I worked in childcare for 12 years, where I successfuly developed and implemented programming for children from infant to age 14. I also directed summer camp programs for five years. My passion for both the environment and fun, educational programming led to the development of “Eco Adventure Camp.” I look forward to another great year!"
