SPRING AND FALL 2019 CAMPS
“Childhood means simplicity. Look at the world with the child’s eye – it is very beautiful.”
– Kailash Satyarthi
When kids go to overnight outdoor school, they develop a sense of independence, new skills and friends while unplugging from their digital and urban world to connect with nature and simply to have fun.
We know how challenging it is to find an overnight camp that is affordable, safe, high quality and will give your children the attention and support they need. We know teachers and parents want the best for their kids and the level of confidence they need from their choice of a kid’s camp. We get it!
Vancouverr Outdoor School operates a local and nature-based outdoor school for students in grades 3 to 12. Our overnight camps and day program are designed to provide the perfect mix of fostering children’s social-emotional learning, skill-based training, gourmet cooking lessons and immersion in the local beautiful wilderness. Imagine your students swimming, preparing a fabulous dinner, hiking, exploring, dancing, building, creating, dreaming, laughing and just enjoying the precious moments of being a kid at their favourite outdoor school. It’s a kodak moment this spring and fall.
