Summer camp at Guelph Lake Nature Centre is all about being outdoors.  We believe that the best camp memories come from exploring nature, making discoveries, building a campfire, hiking through the fields and forests, finding frogs and water creatures and connecting with the natural world.  Along the way we know that campers will make new friends, learn new games and discover new skills.   The camps are action-packed and full of different activities each and every day. All camps focus on environmental discovery and engage campers in the outdoors in a fun, yet educational way. Every camper receives a free nature themed t-shirt. Campers can enjoy a different camp theme each week with hikes, crafts and activities designed to make the outdoors fun!  Participants actively go outside daily to explore the fields and forests that surround the nature centre. Our highly skilled team will share their passion and knowledge of nature and outdoor adventure with your child.  Our goal is to connect your child to a lifetime of appreciation for nature and the outdoors. Intermediate and Senior camps offer kids  a little more challenge and are designed to provide an more adventure based camp experience for our older campers. These camps include much longer wilderness treks and some offer caving or canoeing for a day in Rockwood.

It has taken on the feeling of a  grand rendezvous more so than a music festival. This one is a red letter day, being the tenth anniversary." Tim Bluhm “HIPNIC has aged and matured into a world class weekend on the glorious and rugged coast of California. Ten years in it has grown into a fabled (uniquely Northern California) institution.
