Camp Day Trips – 2018

**Please note, trip day is every Wednesday of the summer. The only on-site trips are on July 4th and August 8th.**

**We do not offer alternative programming on trip days.**

**Trips are subject to change with notice. There are times when we need to change a trip, (e.g. we find out swimming won’t be available at Binbrook Conservation) but we will certainly inform you if that happens**

 

Week 1: July 2 – 6:  Carnival Day! (this is an on-site trip)

We will be having an exciting day of carnival games and activities! We have not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 inflatables for kids to play on. There will be balloons, gummy worms in whip cream, car races, and more. There will games for kids to play to see if they can get the best score and earn a prize! Sac races, bean bag toss, and tug-of-war are some of them. This will be a fun day in the sun!

 

 

Week 2: July 9 – 13:  Bronte Creek Provincial Park

No summer at KidQuest Camp would be complete without a visit to beautiful Bronte Creek Provincial Park. Bronte Creek is a place full of colour, activity, and life. At Bronte Creek, the trails are numerous and unique in their flora and fauna. The play barn provides an excellent opportunity for children to run, climb, slide, and play in a barnyard setting. There are goats to feed and pet, ducks to observe, and an outdoor pool to swim in. No trip to Bronte Creek is complete without our annual LEGENDARY HIDE N’SEEK game. For more information on this exciting trip, check out Bronte Creek’s website.

 

Week 3: July 16 – 20:  Christie Lake Conservation Area

KidQuest Camp is no stranger to Christie Lake. With a beach, designated swimming area, great hiking trails, canoeing, a playground, a creek to catch frogs and minnows, and frisbee golf, there is lots to do at Christie Lake. Some of our favourite activities include our sand castle building competition and Vaseline covered watermelon football game in the water.

Binbrook Conservation Area offers a tremendous variety of outdoor activities for campers to enjoy. Binbrook has a beach, hiking trails, playgrounds, and more. “A day at Binbrook is like a day at the cottage, but close to home.

 This day will be a blast as campers have Nerf battles and play other games in a maze-like obstacle course! Not only is it colourful and fun, but it’s also glow-in-the-dark! We hang 12 black lights a round the gym so that everywhere you go you’ll light up! The design for our maze this year is completely new, and will utilize a new method of maze building. There will be other glow-in-the-dark games this today, so make sure to wear white, bright yellow, or another colour that glows!

** For swimming, the whole camp swims together. Counsellors are always the deepest ones in the pool or swimming area, and form a perimeter around the campers. Our camp takes a part of the pool where there are not many people (or no one) and we all stay together, so all campers are under constant supervision. For the youngest campers, they are limited to a shallow part of the swimming area. If campers do not want to swim, there is lots of beach and/or grassy area for them to play games! Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
