Testimonials

What Participants are Saying

“My favorite things are feeding the fish, making new friends and I love the archery! Air guns are also a favourite. And the scavenger hunts with my friends are fun too. In the winter I liked the survival lessons. I can’t wait to come back!”

Josie B.

Age 9

“As a parent, I am thankful that the OFAH is able to offer full-day educational programs for my kids on PA Days. Even though they’re not at school – I know they’re learning amazing things about conservation and the natural world. As an added bonus, the kids are exhausted by the time I pick them up. The PA Day Programs are fun for both my 7 year old as well as my 10 year old.”

Eileen C.

Parent

“Registering my son for the PA Day programs ahead of time is quick and easy, making drop off a breeze. With the extended child care times, I can get to work on time. The pricing is very reasonable too.”
