Field Trip - Country Heritage Park

This year we are excited to announce that, on Thursday each week, we will be treating campers to a half-day field trip to Country Heritage Park in Milton! This excursion comes at no additional cost to our campers and allow them to get up close with nature and Ontario's Historic Past.

Explore the Past

Country Heritage Park: Is a non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to promote agriculture, food, and education within the Milton community. They provide numerous services to the Halton Region by increasing awareness of food and sustainability. The park boasts teaching gardens, a food hub, community gardens, 19 historical buildings, and a working farm. 

Each Thursday, our campers will arrive at camp by 9:15 and get ready to board the bus for Country Heritage Park. Our arrival at the park will be at 9:45 am at which point the adventure begins! Each week the adventure will be slightly different as many campers attend Camp Summer Blast for multiple weeks, or even the full summer. Some of our activities include: The Cassin Barn - an interactive play centre, a historic 'corner store', The Riley Barn - a 1940's working barn with a variety of farm animals, An Indigenous Experience, A School House, and much more!
