    My 5 year old son had an amazing time at the Going Wild Spy camp. We often struggle to find programming that suits his personality and interests, so it was absolutely wonderful for us to witness him beaming with joy, wanting to return each day and hearing him express how much he loves Timbernook. We’ve already signed him up for more, and look forward to many more Timbernook adventures in the future!

    My 8 year old son really enjoyed the Going Wild Spy camp. He loved building his headquarters. It sounded like there was a lot of choice and variety in activities, which worked out great for him. Would highly recommend. It’s a beautiful place and the drive out of Saskatoon is worth it!

    My 5 year old had an amazing week at Castaway Camp! As a city kid who hates being dirty, seeing him happy and dirty at the end of each day melted my heart! At the end of the last day he was so sad he didn’t get to go back after the weekend! Will be signing him up again!!
