Climate Connections Day Camp

Ecosource’s Climate Connections Day Camp engages children in fun environmental activities indoors and out! The camp provides children ages 5-10 with positive nature experiences and empowers campers to make small changes toward a great impact on the environment and in our communities. The Ecosource Community Hub in downtown Mississauga offers a Teaching Kitchen, outdoor garden, and play area. Summer camp participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in hands-on environmental learning
  • Explore and cook with local food in our Teaching Kitchen
  • Engage in outdoor play and discovery
  • Visit local park spaces and enjoy offsite excursions
Healthy lunches and snacks will be provided as part of the registration costs.
