Our programming 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, Summer Day Camps are meant to develop a positive relationship between children and nature. All our camps prioritize experiential learning first in order to foster a more inquiry-based learning environment.

Our camp themes are best suited to the age ranges they are currently being offered to. Please call the office at 604-572-0373 or email education@burnsbog.org if you have further questions.

Please check your email for the welcome package you should have received upon registration. If you are unable to access this, please email education@burnsbog.org for further assistance. 

Following registration, you will receive a Camper Questionnaire that will allow you to provide Camps staff with as much information as you feel necessary regarding your child’s learning and behaviour, as well as anything else you would like staff to be aware of regarding your child.

We require a 25% deposit at the time of registration for our camps, and for all payment to be completed by two weeks prior to the applicable camp start date.
