One thought on “2022 Nova Scotia Summer Camps and Activities

  1. I am the Education Coordinator for the Atlantic Wildlife Institute in Cookville, NB (just outside of Sackville). I am reaching out to see if I can share some programming information with your community of home schoolers? We have year-round Nature based camps, workshops, field trips and enrichment programs. Greg and I are both Nature educators here and although our children are grown, we were home schoolers once upon a time!

    Please let me know if you are interested and we can set up a phone meeting or I can simply email information if that is better for you.

    Cheers!
