Over the summer your child will be immersed in camp life that will improve their confidence and leadership skills, among a range of other benefits.

Types of Summer Camps

Camps in the Vancouver area come in all different shapes and sizes. Day or overnight, specialized or traditional, Vancouver camps will keep your aspiring artist, pro sports player, super scientist or adventurer busy with a variety of arts, science, technology or outdoor activities.

There are programs to encourage your child’s specific interest, such as theatre, robotics or hockey camps, as well as camps that include a full range of options in their programming– from canoe tripping to arts and crafts. Educational camps with a focus on developing skills in a certain subject, including computer camps or ESL programs are also offered.

Summer camps that specialize in programming for kids and teens with special needs such as autism or pervasive developmental delay can also be found in and around Vancouver, Burnaby, Port Moody, and other parts of BC. Health oriented camps for kids toddler to 18 as well as family-friendly camps are also located in the area. 

Advantages of camps in the Vancouver region

Camps are designed to help kids and teens be themselves, explore their passions, and learn something new, all while having fun! Whether your child is excited to go to camp to improve their skills in something they already love, or to try something completely new, there’s a Vancouver camp that will fit your family’s needs.

A side-effect of learning to be yourself is learning to get along with others. In addition to helping campers develop confidence and independence, camps give kids and teens the opportunity to be social and learn about teamwork. When campers work together and have fun as a group, friendships blossom. In fact, life-long friendships are often a result of days spent bonding at camp.

Another advantage of camp is that kids and teens living in city landscapes such as the Metro Vancouver area get to experience the great outdoors. While many camps offer indoor programming or are based in studios or computer labs, most give campers the chance to get active. Many adventure, traditional, sports and canoe camps take this one step further and immerse campers in the BC’s beautiful natural landscape. Goodbye nature deficit disorder!
