By the Sea Shore

July 2nd – July 5th

Come join us in exploring the wonders of our local waters and the important role of the oceans for the health and interconnectedness of our planet!

Through stories, games and engaging STEAM activities, children will learn about Burrard Inlet and how communities and different cultures have relied on and lived collaboratively with our waterways. From our incredible waterfront location, we will learn of the natural and industrial marvels of our city, and campers will see firsthand examples of the different watercraft, boats and ships that contribute to connecting Vancouver to the rest of the globe!

Deep Sea Discovery

July 8th – July 12th

This week we will focus on all things deep-sea, one of the world’s most exciting and mysterious frontiers of discovery!

With over 240,000 known species, campers will learn about the unique and impressive adaptations that allow survival and diversity in such unforgiving environments. Activities and daily topics will surround the history, technologies, and wonders of ocean exploration. Have you ever wondered why submersibles are designed the way they are or the day-to-day life of a scientist on deep-sea missions? If so, join us for a week of fun to keep your child’s mind and body moving.

Sailor Skills

July 15th – July 19th

Have you ever wondered what life is like for sailors travelling and living onboard a ship?

This week of activities will have campers ready to set sail in no time as they learn the responsibilities, joys and dangers of life as a sailor. We will explore the technologies, art and fun pastimes of crews living at sea. Help us tie knots, read flags, use navigational equipment and more as we immerse ourselves in the history and modern importance of navigation as a key tool of ocean travel

Coastal Creatures

July 22nd – July 26th

Calling all young biologists!

Be ready for a week packed with activities that highlight the diversity and beauty of not only the animals that flourish among the rocks, sand, and forests (kelp and coniferous) of the Pacific Northwest Coast.  We will learn about our flippered, gilled, and feathered neighbours through play, asking questions and observing the importance of their relationships with plants and other organisms in their habitats. Campers will get to reflect on the human impacts and environmental changes affecting marine life and the role we can play in helping to protect these species for generations to come!
