Survival Camp

Ages 12-17

At survival camp, campers will learn what it takes to survive in the wilderness.  Half of each day will be devoted to honing campers' survival skills; constructing shelters, navigating by compass, identifying flora and fauna, learning to light a fire and much, much more! 

The rest of the day will be spent enjoying some of our classic Wye Marsh Day Camp activities; hiking the extensive network of trails, learning about birds, reptiles and amphibians through live animal demonstrations; and so much more.

At the end of the week, campers will have a chance to put their new knowledge to the test in a final survival challenge.

The safety of campers, visitors, staff and volunteers is top priority for Wye Marsh. We are taking every precaution to ensure the best, and safest, experience possible.  

In addition to regular health and safety measures, Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre is following the Ontario Camp Association (OCA) COVID-19 provisions. OCA is in the process of finalizing their COVID-19 procedures for day camp, and in their interim Wye Marsh is adhering to the draft procedures published in March 2021.

Please note that registration for camp closes at 5:00pm on the Wednesday before each week of camp. It is our policy that we cannot hold spots in our camps unless we have a registration form fully filled out and paid.

*To receive the member discount on camp fees the child registered for camp must be named in an annual family membership. To learn more about becoming a Wye Marsh Member visit our Membership Page
