Blog Guelph: Focus on Nature

I realize it might seem early to be planning for summer but if you know someone aged 8 to 16, who might enjoy a week of exploring the natural beauty of Guelph's Arboretum with their camera, you may want to plan this.

Focus on Nature is offering two one-week camps, July 21-25 and August 11-15, based at the Arboretum's Taylor Nature Centre.

According to executive director, Simon Bell, it will be a great opportunity to learn photography skills while spending time outdoors exploring all that the Arboretum has to offer. A naturalist from the Arboretum will join in each day to deepen participants' understanding of nature and there will be lots of time for other fun activities as well.

The fee for the week is $250 and the camps are limited to 16 young nature photographers each. I've heard their programs are wonderful, and fill quickly.

To learn more about these summer camps, visit Focus on Nature's website.
