School Age Camp

Outdoor Adventure Summer Day Camp

Camps for school age children 6-9

Peterson Creek Park, Kamloops BC

DUE TO THE UNPRECEDENTED FIRE SEASON & PARK CLOSURES THIS CAMP HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR SUMMER 2017

Join us for a fun filled week of adventure and physical activity in the great outdoors. 
Loosely structured, full of free play and lots of creative games, stories and songs.
We will definitely be doing some hiking. There will be lots of encouragement for observation as well as identification of native plants & animals. Kids will have the opportunity to learn skills such as knot tying, map reading (and making!) as well as shelter building. All focused around a theme of stewardship for our nature park and our community!

Don’t miss out on this incredible one of a kind day camp experience!

PROGRAM DETAILS:

DROP OFF AT 8:30AM

We meet at the Lower Park Entrance to Peterson Creek. At the top of Glenfair Drive off of Columbia St downtown. If you are coming from East of 6th you can access Glenfair by turning right at 5th and coming toward the Glenfair retirement residences and turning right to go over the bridge and up left toward the park.

Your child MUST come to camp EACH day with the following on their body:

  • A well fitting backpack
  • Sturdy shoes
  • Long pants & shirt (NO SHORTS – NO TANK TOPS)
  • Rain coat & Pants (these can be in their backpack)

In their backpack each child MUST have:

  • two pairs of socks
  • a change of clothes in a ziploc bag
  • two bread bags
  • a water bottle
  • a snack AND a lunch

Kids who not well dressed are uncomfortable and get cranky REALLY fast when they are working hard outside. I do my best to keep kids cool and comfortable but if your child comes unprepared and becomes overheated I will call you to pick them up likely because they are in distress. 

It is of UTMOST importance that we set them up for success by dressing appropriately.

OUR DAY

Our first session will be pretty low key. We will go for a short walk into the park and play some games while we get to know each other. 

Our typical day will include: 

  • A 30-60min leisurely hike into the park
  • Together we will build our “basecamp” for the day
  • Snack
  • Free play and nature arts & crafts
  • Lunch
  • Story-telling games
  • “Sit Spot”
  • Hike/Meander back down to meet our parents

PICK UP IS AT 3PM

We wait at the yellow gate.
I do not let children run into the parking lot toward you. Please come up to the yellow gate to join us and do not wait in your car for your child. The parking lot is one of the most dangerous places we will be all day and I want your kids to be safe.
