Whistler Nature Kids @ Home
With the sad decision that we would be cancelling Whistler Nature Camps 2020 Summer Program due to Covid-19 we looked at how we could switch it up and make sure we can help you stay connected with nature. Now is a great time to awaken your senses and spark curiosity – right in your own natural backyard!
Check out the activities below and head outside for some creative outdoor exploration as a family. Be sure to check back regularly as we will keep adding more activities over the coming weeks!
Our thanks to the Whistler Community Foundation for supporting us as we adapt programs as a result of Covid-19. We look forward to welcoming you all to the return of Whistler Nature Camp in the future.
