Kinder Buddies believes in hands on learning which is why we take so many field trips! Nothing is better than having the kids learn in a new environment. This past week our little ones had a chance to visit Bronte Creek to learn about the environment and meet some animals.
Bronte Creek is a great destination for camping, hiking, swimming, and any other outdoor activity you can think of! What’s great about Bronte Creek is that it is right on the boarder of Oakville and Burlington, you don’t need to go far to get away for the weekend! The daily vehicle permit is $17.00.
Camping with the Family
Bronte Creek park has camping available from April to the end of October (2017). Camp spaces are available for RV’s as well as tents.
