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 17 to learn outdoor skills, wilderness safety and about their community’s wild spaces in a fun, safe environment.

Children participate in many outdoor activities such as shelter-building, fire-building, orienteering (compass work), and outdoor education (e.g. Bear-Aware and Hug-a-Tree programs) combined with a small science curriculum.

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.

Wild Kidz Status in light of COVID-19

Dear Families,

We understand your concern about the current COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the health and safety of your families. We want to assure you that we are closely monitoring the situation. We remain optimistic that Wild Kidz will be able to proceed. However, our top priority is the safety of our campers and their families.

We will continue to monitor the news regarding COVID-19 and we will follow all guidelines as to how we should proceed in the future. We will keep you updated if any decisions are made. We will also issue a formal update on May 1st. In the event that we are forced to cancel camps, we will issue full refunds at that time.

Thank you for your ongoing support. We encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns.
Sincerely,

The BCWF Youth Program Team
