Belcarra_3.JPGBelcarra Park Day Camp is an exciting nature and science program for children ages 6-12, that will get them outside, active and having fun this summer. The program is designed to foster positive social growth, group awareness and leadership, while building a love for nature and the outdoors. Children will be introduced to science based projects, activities and enjoy a wide range of games and outdoor activities. 
 
 
Situated on Burrard Inlet, at the mouth of Indian Arm, Belcarra Park provides an opportunity for children to explore the exciting intertidal zone. Campers will discover the wonders of the sea life including starfish, barnacles, crabs, and mussels. They will enjoy the local hikes in the area including Admiralty Point and Jug Island which feature beautiful ocean views and small beaches, and they will also learn about the rich early history of Belcarra.

  • Thursday Nights: unlike the Sasamat Day Camp program, Belcarra Day Campers have a regular day on Thursdays and finish at 3:15pm. The transporation schedule does not change on Thursdays for Belcarra campers. Please plan to pick up your child as normal on Thursdays. 
  • Bagged Lunches: Please send your child with a bagged lunch, lunches are not included with Belcarra Day Camp. 
  • Allergies and Diet Restrictions: Due to the large number of children with nut allergies, please do not send your child with peanut butter sandwiches or other nut products. We are a nut free environment. Please indicate your childs allergies at time of registration in the camper information section, or call into the office.  
  • T-Shirts: All campers receive a T-shirt at no additional cost. Please indicate size when registering. If you register past April 30, size cannot be guaranteed. 
  • Before and After Care: is available at Port Moody Recreation Centre for an additional fee. For more information visit the Before and After Care page.  
  • Program Age: must be 6 before August 31 of the program year to enroll.
  • Friend Requests: camp is about making new friends. Our first priority is our campers experience, which is why Sasamat only allows campers to make one friend request (which will not be guaranteed). Balanced groups based on age and gender create a positive camp experience for everyone. We encourage campers to bring a friend and make a friend, branching out to meet and include new people. Sasamat will not juggle groups around after camp sessions have begun to put friends together and we encourage you to talk to your camper about meeting new people before camp begins.
