Treks & Camp

TILTreks, Kids Treks and Camp are great programs to get out on the land and experience the natural world in the Thousand Islands.

TILTreks include birding, hiking, kayaking and history outings, as well as Stewardship Days, and other volunteer events.

KidsTreks feature great kid-oriented activities like "Dairy Farm Day" when we visit an organic dairy farm and learn all about raising animals, and all the different uses for milk. We might even get to feed a calf!

TILTKids Camp is a special themed program with several activities aimed at exploring the theme more completely. Camps have included Looking Closer, Habitat Hikers and Nature Rocks! Most TILTreks are free and open to the public; some are reserved for TILT members only.
