Feeding your child is a big responsibility – teaching your child to feed themselves as they become independent is just as important.  For parents who don’t have the time, skills or patience to teach their children how to cook, relax. We’re here to help.

COOKSMART was developed by a parent, Kathy Stewart, who as a nutritionist understood that the best solution to creating long term health starts by making smart food choices from an early age, especially with more exposure to vegetables and fruits.  And as a teacher, she understood that building kitchen confidence by engaging children at their level to learn cooking skills was the smartest way to help our children become healthy adults.  Our structured program helps children learn cooking and baking basics to create snacks and meals they will be able to replicate at home for themselves throughout their life.

Join us for our online Holiday Baking and Gift making workshops or give your child the opportunity to really learn some hands-on skills at our in-person day camp programs!

Spring is the sweetest time of year at Conservation Halton because it means it is time for Maple Season! This year, Maple Season will include multiple programs: Mountsberg’s Maple Town and Crawford Lake’s Sweetwater Season. Maple Town is a family favourite where you can explore the 150-year-old sugar bush at Mountsberg and learn how the crystal-clear sap from the maple trees is magically transformed into sweet maple syrup in the Sugar Shanty. Of course, there will also be many ways to taste maple syrup and other maple products at Maple Town, including a pancake breakfast!

Visitors can also head over to Crawford Lake for Sweetwater Season and learn about the Indigenous origins of maple sugaring through various exhibits and even try some maple taffy on snow. Maple Season runs from March 4 to April 9 on weekends, holidays, and March Break. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit our website.
