Summer Camp

Outdoor Adventure Summer Day Camp

A day full of play, exploration and laughter!
Peterson Creek Park, Kamloops BC

It’s always cool down in the creek bed.

Join us for fun filled weeks 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!

Extreme Weather Events

In recent years we have experienced an uptick in severe weather events that dramatically affect our ability to be outdoors. These are intense and stressful days for all of us and it is important we make space to ground and settle ourselves.

Heat Wave/Warning events with daytime highs over 37C automatically reduce a program day to half-day (1pm).

Special Air Quality statements automatically reduce programs to half-day (1pm) when air quality is 7 or above for more than 2 hours of the camp.

There are no refunds for extreme weather events.
