Campgrounds

Campgrounds is a virtual camp service that is meant to fill the gap of in-person camps this summer. Campgrounds is composed of several unique week-long programs (known as “campsites”). There are many camps to choose from, ranging from pollinators to climate change! Once campers register, we will send them their camp kit with all the necessary program supplies for the week. When their campsite is open, campers will meet with their counselor live over Zoom along with up to four other campers, to do activities together.

Featuring:

  • A variety of campsites to choose from, each with a focused theme and target age range
  • Campsites available for children between the ages of 4 – 15!

If you are registered for a Campgrounds program and have any questions, technical issues, or anything other help you need regarding the program, please email chris.lim@bcwf.bc.ca
