Candidate for Ontario Nature Camp Scholarship

Every year Ontario Nature awards a scholarship for a youth between the ages of 7 and 14 to attend a four-day nature camp at our very own Camp Kawartha.  This camp is especially designed for youth who are interested and knowledgeable about natural history and have potential to develop leadership in this area.

The youth must be nominated for the Award by a club which is a member of Ontario Nature.  Last year we nominated a youth who was the successful candidate and we would like to nominate someone again this year.

Information about the award can be found on the Ontario Nature website, www.ontarionature.org , click on “Take Action” and “Make a Conservation Award Nomination”.

More information about the camp is available on the Camp Kawartha website, www.campkawartha.ca, click on “Summer Camp”, and “Nature Camp”.

The camp session runs from August 29th to September 1st.

The deadline for the nomination to Ontario Nature is March 26th.

If you know of a youth who is interested please contact Ted Vale at 705-741-3641 or treasurer@peterboroughnature.org  by March 13, 2021 so we have enough time to prepare and submit the nomination.
