Welcome to:

Sprout Camp 2017!

For 7 years Sprout Camp has been helping kids to flourish with outdoor, child-led programming in Hamilton. Our city has so many wild spaces to explore and opportunities that can help to reorient ourselves to this land, to live in sustainable ways. Some of the best learning happens outside of four walls, from soil-stained hands and wild deer sightings. We are prepared for adventure, plucking fresh beets out of the ground, meeting special creatures but we save time for : crafts, cooking, a dip in a local pool, a trip to the farmer’s market, library, fun games, free-time.

Join Sprout Camp this summer and help us make our 8th season the best yet !

As of 2015, Sprout Camp operates out of 2 locations – This website will allow you to register for our Westdale location. We offer programs in the east end through the McQuesten Urban Farm. These two locations run independently of each other, when possible the campers join together.

Our aim is to make Sprout Camp available to families of all backgrounds. We are a small business that operates as a social entreprise; we charge a fee for camp to balance operating costs.  Every year we are approached by parents who cannot afford the full fee of camp and we have found a way to make it work because of sponsorship from neighbours, local businesses and a Pay-What-You-Can arrangement. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if money is an issue.
