School is coming to an end and summer is near. That means you better get the kids in gear—for camp. You’ll have no trouble finding ways for them to explore the city with our Great Summer Camps for Kids in Vancouver.
AquaCamps at the Vancouver Aquarium
Mini marine biologists touch silky sea cucumbers, sticky sea anemones and spiny sea stars at the popular Sea Squirts (half-day) or Underwater Adventurers (full-day) camps. Campers get behind-the-scenes viewing of the marine mammal trainers and the feeding of those adorable sea lions.
Escape Adventures on the North Shore
For kids obsessed with wheels, we love the Survive the Shore camp where adventure-seeking kids aged five to nine will bike and hike the epic north shore trail system, build forts and swim.
Junior Picassos will love The Fine Art of Hanging Out, where campers aged six to eight take a backpack full of watercolours, pastels, sketchbooks and pencils on jaunts to Vancouver’s beaches, parks and more to capture summertime outdoors.
