Our Weekday Excursion camps are a beginners introduction to the great outdoors. This program focuses on getting youth outside, moving and connected with nature and each other. Weekday Excursion camps are a weekday excursion (Tuesday-Friday) at Burnaby Lake Regional Park, lead by our fantastic staff and Peer Leaders.

This is your opportunity to have fun, become a better leader, learn new skills, and enjoy the natural beauty right here in Metro Vancouver’s backyard.

Activities can include:

  • Hiking
  • Community gardening
  • Arts and crafts
  • Activities on the boardwalk
  • Nature walks and eco-learning
  • Birding
  • Camp games

Who can attend Weekday Excursion Camps?

Weekday Excursion camps are designed for youth ages 12-14, but open to all teens 18 years of age and under who want to explore our natural world, meet new people, and develop their confidence and leadership skills. Camps are lead by Peer Leaders (aged 15-18) alongside our Camp Supervisors.
