CTS Youth Camps

2021 overnight camps are canceled due to COVID-19.

But we're still getting outside... Join us at our day camps!

Day Camps

Are day camps running in 2021?

Yes!

Purpose

Our day camps are designed to get youth outside, moving and connected with nature, each other and themselves. We’re here to have fun, become better leaders, learn new outdoor skills and learn even more about ourselves.

Who is this for?

Day camps are dedicated to youth ages 12-18 who have passion for our natural world, who want to meet new people, and who want to work on their leadership skills.

What will I do?

We’ve got lots of fun things in store for you. Hiking, community gardening, mural painting, invasive species pulls, eco walks, field trips, camp games… and that’s just to name a few! Click here to check out our Summer 2021 sample itinerary.

Where will I be?

Our home base is at Picken House (6825 Cariboo Rd, Burnaby BC).

While most day camps start at Picken House, these are our four camp locations:

  • Burnaby Lake Regional Park
  • Pacific Spirit Regional Park
  • Tynehead Regional Park

We also venture out to other regional parks, depending on the day and activities we have planned.

Overnight Camps

Are overnight camps running in 2021?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no.

What is your Spirit Steward Program?

Our Spirit Steward Program is a FREE 3-day overnight camping experience. These camps run every weekend during the summer months. During these camps, youth will have a chance to develop important camping skills such as tent building, knot-tying, and cooking. In addition, our participants will participate each weekend on a Stewardship Projects organized with our Partner organizations. These projects are great opportunities to give back to the community and learn about our environment.

Purpose

Who is this for?

These camps are dedicated to youth ages 12-18 who have passion for our natural world, who want to meet new people, and who want to work on their leadership skills.

What will I do?

Outdoor cooking, campfire stories, learn about environmental stewardship, play camp games, develop your leadership skills, set up a tent… everything you should do at camp!

Where will I be?
