CORNWALL, Ontario – Nature is waiting to be discovered by junior scientists this March Break.

The St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences will be hosting its 2014 March Break Camp at the Cooper Marsh Visitor and Education Centre in South Lancaster.

A unique day camp for children ages six to 11, hosted by the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences, will run from March 10 to 14 at the Cooper Marsh Visitor and Education Centre in South Lancaster.

“It's all about combining fun, science, and the experience of discovering new things in the great outdoors," said Lisa Migneault, education and outreach programmer at the River Institute.

Each day a brand new themed adventure with indoor and outdoor activities will be led by local scientists, river experts, and naturalists.

March 10 - Earth Savers

Protecting the planet can be fun. Play games, create crafts from recycled materials, and tackle some green activities that focus on protecting our environment.

March 11 - Mad Scientist

We are calling all future biologists, chemists, and ecologists to come out and become mad scientists for a day by conducting experiments that are non-stop fun.

March 12 - Man vs. Wild

Campers take a walk on the wild side with some great games and outdoor activities that focus on wilderness navigation and survival in nature. Learn to stay safe and warm.

March 13 - Microscope Mania

A whole new world lies under the Microscope as junior scientists learn how to use this tool to view some really small things of their own.

March 14 - Wild for Wildlife

Where do animals hide in the winter? What do their tracks look like? Become a wildlife detective and learn how to track down some fascinating furry friends.

For $35/a day (or $165 for the week) parents have the ammunition to fight March Break boredom by getting kids outside and unplugged from video games, televisions, and their cell phones.
