What's Included

Young Ecologists (Ages 10-12) will begin to introduce the campers to the amazing complexity of our native Acadian forests. They will dissect owl pellets, take part in forest restoration planning and plantings and develop their understanding of how we can take positive environmental action.

About This Organizer

The Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project is an initiative of the Environmental Coalition of Prince Edward Island. It combines protection of the natural area along the streams with wildlife enhancement, forest stewardship, watershed protection, environmental education and ecological research.

Since 1992 we have been offering summer camps for youth. Over the years the camps have grown immensely and become one of our most successful education programs. The goal of our camps is to help children discover their own place in nature. We spend the entire week outdoors, bird watching, tracking, making art, playing games, observing insects and getting wet and dirty. Each camp is an adventure for the children but also an incredible educational experience.

Our camp director, Eric Edward (naturecamp@macphailwoods.org), has lead the camps for the past 14 years. This year, Eric will be assisted by, environmental educator, Daniel McRae and one summer student. We work hard to give the campers an exciting but safe week and the small camp size, high teacher to camper ratio and years of experience are important factors in accomplishing this goal. Leaders are trained in first aid.
