Wild Kidz

Play and Learn in Outdoor Wild Spaces

Learn how to make a shelter, build a fire and navigate through the wilderness! Wild Kidz is designed for children and youth ages 8 to 14 to learn outdoor skills, wilderness safety and about their community’s wild spaces in a fun, safe environment.

There are a range of activities provided, from visiting local ecological attractions – like provincial or national parks – to BCWF members providing programs or demonstrations of their outdoor-related talents. Each camp is programmed around the host community’s attractions and resources, making every camp a unique experience.
