Summer Camps

A Summer Camp in Ontario That's Not to be Missed

 

Just like best friends, CHP and Planet Kids have spent the past 18 years bringing farm camp experience to your young campers. Our campers learn about the food, farm animals, and by exploring all aspects of farm life – from making ice cream to really being up close and personal with our barn animals, then finishing the day off at the Kelso beach. A busy, entertaining, educational, and unforgettable experience that will last more than the summer.

Who Should Come?

Kids from grade SK to 3 love this day camp experience. Many return year after year. If your kids love animals, this program is the ideal experience. They will get up close and personal with the residents of our barn, and learn an appreciation for what the animals give us.

Country Heritage Park is home to a small set of live animal and poultry displays for educational and programming purposes and is host to a number of summer visitors as part of our summer event programs. Not surprisingly we have some wild visitors from time to time including Mr. Coyote and numerous squirrels and raccoons albeit not always welcome.
