Program Description

Bring your sense of wonder as we explore all the life of the farm! We’ll explore how plants grow from seeds, how worms make our soil fabulous, and how our farm depends on healthy air, water, and soil. And we’ll take a trip to a wild ecosystem to see how food grows in nature! EcoWonders include a farm-fresh snack Monday-Thursday and lunch on Friday.

Registration Policies

Age

EcoWonders is designed for campers entering grades 1 through 6. Campers must be 6 years or older by the first day of camp. If your camper is under 6, our MiniCamp program is just for them!

Two Week Policy

Our goal is to help as many youth to experience Camp Fresh Roots as is possible! Campers who secure spots in more than two camps upon registration may be contacted and refunded for the additional camps if a waitlist develops.

Waitlist

Joining the waitlist is free. If space opens up in a full camp, campers who are not registered for another camp week will have first priority. Full payment must be received within two weeks or by the first day of the camp session, whichever is sooner, or the space will be offered to another on the waitlist.

Camp Cancellation

Should we need to cancel a camp session, we will notify families no later than 3:00pm the Monday before the session starts. If we cannot place your camper in another camp session, we will refund the full camp fee.

Refunds

All cancellations must be made in writing. Refunds are available as follows:
By May 1: Full refund, minus $25 administration fee
Between May 1 and 1 month before start of camp session: 75% refund, minus $25 administration fee*
Between 1 month and 2 weeks before start of session: 50%, minus $25 admin fee*
Less than 2 weeks before camp session: No refund.*
*If we can fill the slot from our waiting list, we will issue a full refund, minus the administration fee.
No refunds will be issued due to missed camp days.

Need to change weeks? Let us know at least two weeks before the start of the first session involved, and we will move your camper if space is available.

Non-Discrimination and Accessibility

Camp Fresh Roots does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, family make-up, religion, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, employment policies, scholarships, programs and activities.

Camp Fresh Roots is hosted on a working schoolyard farm! That means we’ll be digging in the soil, using hand tools, looking for bugs, peering at plants, and moving through the sometimes narrow paths and uneven surfaces you’d expect to find between garden beds. We will do our best to accommodate campers of all abilities; please contact our camp team at camp@freshroots.ca if you have any questions or concerns.
