FAQ

What will my child/children do at camp?

Each week of camp includes crafts, games, guest presentations, and exploratory activities related to Bog ecosystems, plants, and animals – all tailored to meet the theme of the week. In general, our camps are meant to develop a positive relationship between children and nature.

 

Where do camp activities take place?

Many camp activities take place in the Day Camp compound, near the first boardwalk entrance from the parking lot. Other activities take place throughout the Delta Nature Reserve along a network of boardwalks. Campers are outside all day, rain or shine.

 

I want to register my children for the same camp but they are in different camp age groups.

Our camp themes are best suited to the age ranges they are currently being offered to. Please call the office at 604-572-0373 if you have further questions about our age ranges.

 

I’m curious about more day-to-day camp information. Where or how can I find this?

You will receive a welcome package PDF two weeks prior to the start of camps with all of this information, including sign-in/out, late pick-ups/arrivals, our behaviour policy and what to bring.

 

My child is still 5 – can I register them for camp?

Yes! We allow children age 5 that have completed Kindergarten to register for age 6-9 camps.

I am impressed with your quality day camps. This is the second year my son has participated and he is already talking about signing up next year. As a parent, the camp is excellent value and has infused my son and our family with a deep love and appreciation of Burns Bog.
