North Vancouver camps offer kids opportunities for learning, growth, and fun
North Vancouver camp opportunities include after-school programs, and both day and overnight camps. Day camp is ideal for younger kids or shy kids interested in exploring camp for the first time. Day camps help kids develop social skills, and they can return home every evening, giving them a healthy balance between personal and social life. Kids gain independence working and playing without parental supervision for 6-8 hours a day.
Day camps include either traditional or specialised camps. The former offers an adventurous camp experience where kids and teens learn and play outdoors following a camp schedule with a variety of activities. The latter are focused on topics in sports, education, arts, and technology, anything from soccer to dance to Roblox, etc.
For active kids and teens, sports camps help kids gain new athletic skills as they compete in matches, games, or tournaments. North Vancouver’s beauty acts as a natural playground for sports camps, especially those held outside such as cycling, track and field, or water sport activities.
Educational or arts camps are great options for creative scholars. Academic camps in North Vancouver teach kids and teens age-appropriate math, engineering, and coding skills, while arts camp builds your child’s aesthetic literacy skills. STEAM education, teaching sought-after skills, bridges these two spheres.
At North Vancouver overnight camps—typically traditional, multi-activity camps—your child tries out activities of all types, including some extreme sports like BMX or ziplining. These camps are a great way to build teens’ and older kids’ responsibility and independence. They learn how to balance their routine away from home, solve problems and make decisions on their own.
Accommodations at sleepaway camps often include bedrooms, bathrooms, and a cafeteria. In these communal spaces, your child creates many new and exciting friendships. A mix of young and older campers creates a community where teens gain leadership qualities by managing their younger friends.
Some camps above are online kids’ programs, which may be most convenient for some families, depending on your location.
How to find the best North Vancouver camps for your family
Initiating your camp search three to four months in advance makes the selection process easier, as you have enough time to weigh all your options and narrow your search. Taking the time to come up with a few ‘camp essentials’ is also beneficial. This includes details of your desired activities, location, duration, age range, and price. Make sure your child is involved in helping create this list, as they may have some interesting insights in the decision making process.
As you narrow your list, here are some examples of questions you may ask camps and programs:
