Day Camp Naturally

MacEwan Field Station
4190 Riverwood Park Lane, Mississauga
Camps take place on days of teacher strikes in Peel Region

In light of rotating teacher strikes across Ontario, The Riverwood Conservancy will offer single-day camps led by our Education Naturally program staff. Day Camp Naturally offers children from grade one through five a place to engage in nature-based activities on days when job action affects Peel District School Board and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board schools.

Registration for Day Camp Naturally programs will begin as soon as possible following strike action announcements made by the above school boards. Enrollment is limited to 16 students per day. In the event a planned day of strike action does not occur, full refunds will be given to parents who registered their children for that day’s camp.

What kids can expect

Day Camp Naturally is an active, outdoor camp for children in grades one through five. Activities will further students’ connections to the local environment in Mississauga, and to the wider world of nature. Students will hike on Riverwood’s trails, play nature-focused games, and enjoy crafting activities. In the event of inclement weather, activities will take place inside the MacEwan Field Station.

What kids should bring

Please ensure your child(ren) come to Day Camp Naturally well-prepared for time spent outdoors. Students should be dressed appropriately for the weather (hat, gloves, winter boots, snow pants, winter coat, layers), and must bring their own nut-free lunch, snacks, and reusable water bottle.

PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to administer medication to students other than EpiPens in an emergency situation. If your child is prone to anaphylaxis and may need an EpiPen administered in an emergency, we require that you complete and submit an Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan. Please email the completed form to or submit it to the teacher when you drop off your child.
