NVRC Camps

We believe camps are a fun, safe and meaningful way to spend the summer, school breaks and professional days.

Registration Dates

Registration for our full-day and part-day summer camps begins on Wednesday, May 18 at 7:00am. View our camps in our online registration system

To help your registration day go smoothly, read our Registration Tips.

Age Ranges

Age requirements for full-day camps are calculated as of the child’s age on Dec 31 in the current year, as NVRC follows the same system used by schools. This is designed so that children are in camps with their school grade peers. For example, children turning eight during that year will be in the same camp whether they were born in March or September. Age requirements for part-day camps are calculated as the child’s age at the course start date.

Full-Day Summer Camp Options

We are pleased to offer a wide variety of full day camp options for school age children. We have both facility based camps that meet at our centres and outdoor camps that meet outside. We even have a camp option for children who are out of school in the last week of June! Join us for a summer filled with adventure, games, friendship and exploration.

Facility Based Camps
Campers start and end their day inside an NVRC facility. We spend time both indoors and outdoors!

Outdoor Camp
These camps are outside rain or shine. We will explore our local parks, trails and beaches! We may go inside for a swim or skate, but the majority of our activities are outdoors. In the case of extreme weather events, alternate plans will be made. 

Part-Day Summer Camp Options

NVRC offers part-day camps for preschoolers, school age children, and youth. Part-day summer camp opportunities include art, certification & leadership, learn & play, and sport. View our camps in our online registration system

The Camps Team

Our camp leaders are chosen for their experience, leadership and enthusiasm for working with kids. They are trained to make the camps safe, fun and inclusive.  Camp leaders are trained in first aid, child development, risk management and emergency preparedness. 

Camp Forms

Once you've chosen a camp, please be sure to complete and sign our Camp Parental Consent Form. The form is fillable and savable so that you can fill it out once, save a copy to your computer, then print a copy off for each week that your child is in a camp.

  1. Open the Camp Participant Package
  2. Fill in your personal information and sign electronically 
  3. Save the completed document to your hard drive
  4. Give the completed form to your camp leader on the first day of camp. Alternatively, full day camp participants will be provided an email address to submit an electronic copy in advance to camp.

Camps Inclusion

NVRC welcomes participants of all abilities to our camps. While we do not provide 1:1 or individualized support, we have inclusion spots available in some of our full day summer camp locations.  If your child would benefit from attending camp with a little extra supervision, you can apply for a week of inclusion support. View our Summer Support Application for more information and to apply.

Campers are also invited and encouraged to attend camp with their own private support worker. If your child will be attending with a support worker, please contact the camp location to inform the camp supervisor, or the access programmer at 604-983-6415. 

If your child has a disability or support consideration that you would like to discuss, you can call the facility directly or reach the Access Programmer at 604-983-6415. The Access Programmer specializes in disability and support services. For questions about our general camps and registrations, call 604-987-7529.
