Program Overview

Woodland Tinkering is all about design & collaboration in the wild.  Children will work together to build their own play experiences using unique combinations of materials and the environment as their inspiration. There will be plenty of time for games, tinkering, and hours of creative, child-led play! Programs may vary based on location.

**REGISTRATION ON OUR NEW WEBSITE www.outdoorotelgin.ca/shop ***

This Elgin County summer camp offers children the opportunity to design and build their very own playground in the woods!

Please read this information carefully prior to registering your child. This FULL DAY Elgin County summer camp is for children ages 6-10, but the ages may be flexible to accommodate siblings- please send us an email prior to registration if this is an issue for you. This nature program runs 9am-3pm and the price is $350. Woodland Tinkering runs August 8-12th, 2022.

Our program is inclusive; we are a safe place for children and families of all abilities, backgrounds, belief systems, and sexual orientations. Children are required to bring their own food; families will be notified of allergies prior to the program.

COVID procedures will be in place and can be obtained through email. Here are some basics:

  • altered pick up and drop-off procedures in place
  • frequent cleaning of bathroom
  • heightened cleaning/disinfection throughout the day
  • adults wear masks within 6′ of any participants
  • small camp size of only 24 children, 100% outdoors other than lightning.
  • masks not required outdoors, but will be required in the event that we have to weather indoors for a storm. This may change depending on fluctuating regulations.
  • some activities/materials modified
  • REFUND POLICY- In the event that we have to close due to lockdown , you will be offered a 90% refund or 100% credit.  Credit is ONLY issued in the event that TimberNook Elgin has to cancel the program; if a child has to miss a class due to illness, quarantine or any other reason there will be no refunds, credit or transfer of class. 

When deciding if this program will be a good fit for your child, please take the following into consideration:

  • We maintain a 6:1 child/adult ratio where the role of the adult is to step back and tune in. TimberNook staff maintains visual contact with children, but may be out of arm’s reach. Staff allows children the opportunity to build conflict resolution skills, but will step in when as required such as when safety is a factor.
  • We expect children to maintain visual contact of a TimberNook staff person, stay within the designated (unfenced) boundaries of our site, and manage their needs (such as eating, drinking fluids and using the restroom).
  • We understand that children are individuals and sometimes have varying abilities and unique needs. If your child requires additional support, please contact us to make a plan. If the child requires 1:1 support to attend, you must provide the support person as we are unable to meet this level of supervision within the program.

If this summer camp is full, please email us to be added to the waitlist [email protected]

Make sure you have selected CAD to see the proper price of $350 and pay in Canadian funds. If you are having difficulty with registration or payment, please try a different browser (chrome is the suggested browser) and clear your cookies/cache.

An email will go out prior to camp with more details about what to expect. Thank you for supporting TimberNook Elgin, Elgin County’s nature play program!
