*This program has been updated from 2021 and is different enough that it can be taken again.


This program is open to girls and under-represented genders ages 9-12 who live in the Maritime provinces (NB, NS, PEI). Participants from other areas are welcome to apply for our wait list.

How To Apply

Participants must be nominated by an adult that knows them well, including parents/guardians, by May 1st.

This is a new program, so we don’t have photos to show you! But rest assured that we’re going to have a fantastic time learning all about wildlife conservation at Kejimkujik National Park.
