“Our kids are the future of our province – they will be our leaders, our entrepreneurs, and those who care for and build our communities.  The care we give our kids in their early years will have deep and lasting effects, not just for people but for our province.”

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What to Bring

Please send a small light back pack with a hearty snack, water bottle, outdoor gear, boots, extra layer of clothes and underwear / diapers, favourite book/ toy, something to dig with, weather appropriate outer wear, sunscreen, plus an extra hat, socks, and mitts, plus sunglasses if really bright out in the snow.  

Weather

Please BE PREPARED to be outside for most of the time dressed appropriately for the weather. We will go inside the site house or building or temporary structure (wall tent/ yurt/ hut) to warm up when needed. We will have bathroom facilities and hand washing available at all sites.

Food

We will have a mandatory snack and water / warm tea breaks throughout the session as needed. Please send a hearty snack & lunch (if their normal lunch time happens before 12:30pm). Kids eat a lot after playing outside – so send lots!  Pick up can happen from Noon – 12:30pm.  If your child eats lunch before 12:30 please let us know and send a lunch too and we will do our best to accommodate your regular eating routine/ schedule.

Instructors / Facilitators

Our outdoor guides and leaders have lots of experience having fun with little children outside. They are trained in first aid, have had successful seasons working with our little people in our camps and each one of them has passed the 2.5yr old FlexFord Twin Play Date, Interview and Approval! We strive to have an ECE with our program and hope to have an ECE as a consistent part of our team.

“I just wanted to say how impressed I was with all your staff the professionalism and the enthusiasm that they brought every day with the kids was remarkable, we did a lot of things this summer and your organisation was by far a step above any other. It's a good feeling to leave your kids knowing they are in capable hands.”

Parent from our Summer Camps, 2019

Do you need extra funding for your child to join our winter activities? 

If your child is unable to attend because the cost is prohibitive, please contact us and we will work something out.

Community Connections and Youth Access Fund are available to help support youth from low and modest income families who are interested. 

We are proud to support some of our free outdoor camp and clinic initiatives with the Open Mountain Project & Revelstoke PaddleSport Association.

Supported by Stoke Youth Network.
