CTS Youth programs are completely free for every participant.
The benefits of the outdoors are clearer than ever. If you are a youth age 12-18 looking to adventure into nature, make new friends and memories, learn outdoor skills and learn even more about yourself… you have found the perfect program. These are the amazing things you gain when you get outside with CTS Youth Society.
About Our Programs
CTS Youth programs are completely free for every participant. This is because we believe every youth deserves the opportunity to attend summer camp, regardless of their circumstances.
Our programs invite youth to explore the beauty of four Metro Vancouver regional parks. By getting into nature, youth are encouraged to put aside preconceived notions of their abilities and develop new outdoor and leadership skills.
What to Expect
Depending on the camp location you choose, activities can include hiking, games, environmental stewardship, outdoor cooking, leadership training, arts and crafts, nature knowledge, and of course, overnight camping! Learn more about what campers can expect in the 2023 Summer Guide below.
To learn a bit more about each camp location (and to find the right fit for you), please visit our Camps page before registering. All of our programs are designed to help youth build a sense of confidence and independence in nature and themselves.
