Sasamat Outdoor Centre’s Get Outside Family Day is the perfect way to spend the day outdoors with your family. Taking place at Sasamat Outdoor Centre, Get Outside Family Day is open to all families and will feature a variety of family-oriented outdoor recreational activities to enjoy. This unique, 100% outdoor program will offer opportunities for families to learn and practice outdoor skills, participate in traditional camp activities, and enjoy the natural beauty of Belcarra Regional Park.
Upon arrival families will be shown to their space for the day, which will include a fire pit, table and seating area. Operating in a family cohort style, families will sign up for various activities throughout the day and enjoy these programs with their family. Available activities include: canoeing, kayaking, archery, arts & crafts, climbing wall, high ropes, nature walks, a family scavenger hunt, and more! Leisure time to sit, relax and enjoy a coffee or hot chocolate with your family members is always an option as well! Pack a lunch, or opt to add on our fresh bagged-lunch and make things easy- you will enjoy a fresh meal prepared by our wonderful in-house chefs. Families will enjoy a campfire, SMORS and an exciting day outdoors together!
