Whistler Nature Camp | Spring Break
Spring Break Camp for ages 6-10
Part of AWARE’s Whistler Nature Camp series
The Whistler Nature Camp series strives to provide opportunities that will nurture children’s innate curiosity about the natural world, foster their understanding of the interconnectedness of all living and non-living things, and instill in them a sense of care and responsibility for the well-being of their communities and our shared planet.
Whistler Nature Camp focuses on ages 6–10 years old, with programs for older kids to come in the following years. As a day camp, the program is offered when school is closed following the School District No. 48 (Sea to Sky) calendar and is available through the summer holidays, spring break and teacher professional development days. Sign up can be for one day or an entire break period.
What to expect at Spring Break Camp
AWARE is proud to introduce Nature Camp programming on spring break for children ages 6-10.
This March break camp offers a unique opportunity for children to connect with Whistler’s natural backyard as milder temperatures allow signs of spring to emerge from beneath the thick blanket of snow. Experience a fun-filled day packed with outdoor adventure and activities to leave participants with excitement and curiosity to learn more.
Spring Break Nature Camp focuses on ages 6–10 years old and strives to teach participants about Whistler’s unique flora and fauna, and foster an understanding of the interconnectedness of all living and non-living things.
Spring Break Nature Camp is based out of Spring Creek Community School. Campers will spend the majority of the day outside in the fields, forests and naturalized play areas surrounding the school grounds regardless of weather (so please dress appropriately). We also have an indoor nature classroom to retreat to during extreme weather and as safe storage for lunches and belongings.
- We plan to spend the majority of our day outdoors, so please ensure your child arrives dressed for the weather conditions on that day. (Snow pants, hat, gloves on winter days)
- Closed toed shoes or boots are mandatory.
- There will be a break for lunch, as well as a morning and afternoon snack. Lunch is not provided so please send your children with enough food for the day.
