Junior Leadership Program

Are you a seasoned Nature Day Camp attendee looking for the next adventure? Consider joining our Junior Leadership Program!

Many of our campers return year after year and still have a passion for the great outdoors even as they surpass the age limit for regular campers. Our Junior Leaders play a vital role in the camp, acting as positive role models for younger children and sharing their "camp expertise." It's a fantastic opportunity for this age group to develop communication skills, build leadership qualities, and make a positive impact in the lives of younger campers.

Join us and embark on an exciting journey of personal growth and leadership development. Click below to learn more and register for our Junior Leadership Program today!

Summer Day Camp Policies


  • Camp registration will open on May 1st o each year.
  • Registration can be completed via email by submitting the registration form to, or in person at the Sanctuary office.
  • Registration is limited to a maximum of 20 campers per day, on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Campers must be registered and paid in full at least one week before the start of camp, as drop-ins cannot be accommodated.
  • Both week-length and single-day registrations are accepted.
  • The cost of camp is $40 per day, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, and payment can be made in cash, cheque, or Interac.
  • A COVID screening form must be read and signed when children are dropped off at camp, as per our safety protocols. Campers who do not have a signed screening form will not be permitted to stay for the day.
  • If a particular day of camp is full, please call to inquire about placing your child on a wait-list.


The Morrell Nature Sanctuary will issue a full credit or refund if the cancellation request is received two days before camp. Any cancellations afterwards or ‘no shows’ will be charged for one full day of camp.

Camp Behavior and Discipline Guidelines

All campers must follow these basic rules:

  1. They may not hurt or endanger themselves, other campers, or any living thing.
  2. They must stay with the group.
  3. They must stay on the trails (unless directed otherwise)
  4. No foul language or threats (verbal or physical) allowed.
  5. They must follow instructions and directions of leaders at all times.

If needed, leaders will give a warning to the camper first, followed by a time out. If three time outs are given in one day, the parent or guardian will be contacted immediately and the camper will be asked to leave.

Drop Off & Pick-Up

Children may not arrive before the start of camp and must be picked up promptly. This allows leaders time to prepare for and clean up after each day of camp. Doors open at 9:00am and you are required to remain with your child(ren) until the leaders open the camp each day. Your child will not be released by anyone other than a parent/ guardian listed on the registration form unless you notify leaders ahead of time. Children must be picked up by 3:00 PM. We understand  unexpected circumstances may occur, however if you are late picking up your child more than 2 days there will be a late fee of $5.00 per child per day.

Please note: if your child is distressed, please stay with your child until they are settled. Thank you!

Additional Information

  • Children should be appropriately dressed for weather conditions (including proper foot wear).
  • Come equipped with insect repellant, sunscreen, a nut-free lunch, two snacks and a water bottle.
  • Children who fail to display proper behavior may be asked to withdraw from camp.

Severe Allergies or Medical Conditions

We must be made aware if your child has a severe allergy or medical condition that requires medication or special care. Please inform us and complete the severe allergy information form. This form must be filled out prior to the first day of camp. We will keep parents informed of any out of the ordinary occurrences.
