Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation is partnering with Operation Sparrow and the Poverty Action for Change Coalition (PACC) in order to provide ten spots of unique outdoor day camp in a natural setting for disadvantaged children, from ages 6 to 12 years, living in Newmarket or Aurora, to attend free of charge. Poverty Action for Change Coalition will place ten disadvantaged children into day camp this July and/or August. The camp will be located at the  Sheppard’s Bush Conservation Area which is a maple forest.

The Town of Aurora, in partnership with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, is excited to offer children a unique experience that involves hiking, orienteering, wilderness shelter building and cookout, exploration of field, forest and pond, with nature arts & crafts and so much more. The camp staff will be comprised of  conservation educators from the Educational Centre at Scanlon Creek.

At the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation, one of the priorities is the environmental education of the children.
