Outdoor Adventure Spring Break Day Camp
Daycamp for school age children 6-9

Peterson Creek Park, Kamloops BC
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!

$175/week or $40/day
Extended hours 8:30-3:30 available $25/week or 5/day
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.
In our experience children who are not well dressed for our programs are not successful and do not have fun. Providing your child with the LAYERS of clothing suggested sets them up for success outdoors.
Parents who are interested in the program and need additional support outfitting their child PLEASE email krystal(at)sproutingknowledge.com and we will happily help you outfit your child.
* 5 Year Olds
We travel approx 4-6km per day through the park. It’s a 6 hour day, all outside. It’s a lot for a little one.
If you’re child is super keen to join a friend or is extremely active we’d love to have them join our group of slightly older kids! We are aiming to run a camp designed just for 4-5 year olds this summer 🙂
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
- Free play and nature arts & crafts
- 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.
