Thanks to a unique relationship with Metro Vancouver Regional Parks, our overnight camps offer 3-day, 2-night Overnight Adventure camping experiences. With both tenting and cabin options, our overnight adventures run on the weekends (Friday-Sunday) on select weekends at Tynehead, Capilano River, and Pacific Spirit regional parks.

Who can attend Overnight Adventure Camps?
These camps are designed for youth ages 12-14, but open to all teens 18 years of age and under. Camps are led by Peer Leaders (aged 15-18) alongside our Camp Supervisors.
Where are Overnight Adventure Camps?
Note: We do not provide transportation to and from camp.
Tynehead Regional Park (Surrey)
Just a short walk to the Serpentine River, participants can camp in tents at Raven’s Nest group campsite. Camp Tynehead offer many activities to enjoy, including sports games in the field, hands-on environmental work at the salmon hatchery, bbq’d camp food and nightly campfires with new friends (and s’mores) at the fire pit.
Capilano River Regional Park (North Vancouver)
For a more “glamping” experience, Camp Capilano offers campers a cozy stay in the bunkbed cabins. Here they can enjoy the ancient forests, play a game of capture the flag, practice yoga on the banks of Capilano River, and enjoy group meals in the full kitchen mess hall.
Pacific Spirit Regional Park (Vancouver)
Nestled between towering forests and thriving beaches, Camp Pacific Spirit offers tent camping alongside some of the best views Vancouver has to offer. Activities include environmental work in the bog, beach games, hiking the trails in the park, group cooking, and plenty of recreation in the nearby athletic field.
When are Overnight Adventure Camps?
Our overnight camps run from Friday (5pm) to Sunday (12pm noon) throughout July & August.
