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!

Please note all of our summer 2020 camp programs are full.
