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.

Is my Child Ready for the Resident Camp Experience?
 Parents are often nervous of letting their children move away from the embrace of family. That's understandable. The important question to ask as a parent is whether your child is ready for that move. If they feel they are, it might be time for your family to discover whether Resident Camp works for all of you. 
Resident Camp is a different experience than Day Camp - for everyone in the family. It can help a child and a family grow and learn to understand each other better, while providing an experience that a child will never forget. Are both you and your child ready?
