How It Works
Our kid's camps will take place in the outdoors around Squamish, either the smoke bluff parks of Stawamus chief area. Each day will have a specific activity goal in mind, either rock climbing, hiking, or outdoor exploration. In addition games and educational components are worked into these activities. Kids will be dropped off at either Rose Park or occasionally Stawamush chief park at 9:00 and picked up the same location 3:00
