We believe camps are a fun, safe and meaningful way to spend the summer, school breaks and professional days.
The right camp experience also fosters your child’s development. We promote character values including respect, responsibility and honesty. And we help kids learn to get along with a new group of peers, ask for help from others and take on manageable risks independently. This creates resilient and confident kids and we can all be proud of that! Find programs
For general inquiries and registration information please call the NVRC call-centre at 604 987 7529.
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.
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.
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.
- Open the Camp Parental & Emergency Consent Form
- Fill in your personal information
- Save the completed document to your hard drive
- Print the form and sign it in all 3 places & fill in both informed consent documents
- Give the completed form to the camp leader before dropping your child off for their first day of camp
NVRC welcomes participants of all abilities to our camps. While we do not provide 1:1 or individualized, 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. Information and applications for Summer 2022 will be available in late spring.
Campers are also invited and encouraged to attend with their own private support worker to our winter, spring, Pro-D and summer camps. If your child will be attending with a support worker, please contact the camp location to inform the camp supervisor.
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 general camps questions and registrations call 604-987-7529.
