FUN Camps: Pearson College

Your child may think they’re just having a great time paddling a kayak or riding a horse, but they’re actually connecting with the natural world and learning how to become leaders who protect it.

Utilizing the FUN Approach, our passionate leaders work to connect  FUN Campers with their local environment, expertly pairing traditional camp activities such as hiking, swimming and interactive games with environmental education and exciting adventure activities including whale watching and zip-lining.

Gr. 5 Cool Carbon Connections

The program engages students in hands-on, field-based outings to nearby parks/green spaces, led by local experts (naturalists, biologists, etc.) to teach students about their environment, flora and fauna, natural processes, to help develop their awareness of and connection to Nature. Groups of students walk with their teachers to a designated “wild space” where they will be met by the PSS Team.

Gr. 6/7 Creatures of Habitat Program

In 2009, Peninsula Streams Society, in partnership with a team of concerned community members, created an environmental education program for Gr. 6 students.  We called it “Creatures of Habitat – Days of Action” to reflect the program’s emphasis on proactivity in the face of our environmental challenges.  Every year since, we have brought a “Day of Action” to middle schools all over the Peninsula. With our team of volunteers, workshop providers and theatre crew, we engage 5-700 Gr.
