Camp Ridgeview | La Masion | Holly House | Club West
The Summer Camp is now in it's 23rd year at Camp Ridgeview. Once again we have fun filled & adventurous Summer activities planned for the children. We are a home-from-home. The children bring their own lunch and we provide two nutritious snacks a day.
The program is most suitable for children 4 years (Kindergarten age) to 8 years old.
Please read pages 1 & 6 carefully then print, complete and return pages 2 - 5
The Summer Program will be “Backyard Adventures” which will consist of picnics everywhere, visits to the beach, bike riding, walks to local parks, tent play, playground activities, cooking, clay work, art and crafts. We plan to have lots of water play, with sponge & water balloon games, sprinkler and waterslide fun! Freezies and Ice Creams rule too! All this is rolled into 9 fun-filled theme weeks!
Activities shown may be subject to change & weather permitting.
\\ July 3rd to 8th //
School’s out so it is time to meet up with old summer buddies or get to know new ones! Splash into Summer with Backyard Adventures, picnic at John Lawson Park, and practice your mini-golf skills. We’ll make our own critter pets and enjoy an exciting visit from Cinema Zoo (the people who provide animals for films).
\\ July 10th to 14th //
Okay, maybe not the Grand Canyon, but our intrepid travellers will visit and become Rainforest Explorers in the Kids Treetops Adventure at the Capilano Suspension Bridge. The Great Picnic-ers of Summer will unite and experience the delights of Jericho Beach for fun in the sun!
\\ July 17th to 21st //
Water, water everywhere! Prepare to get wet and wild as we spend the summer days splishin’-and-a-splashin’ at the best Water Parks in town! Become an ace super soaker, sponge fighter & slip’n slider and have fun at New Brighton Pool. We’ll even have a taste of Hawaii on our exotic Luau Day.
\\ July 24th to 28th //
Kids ahoy! Join us as we travel the high seas to Granville Island on the Aquabus! Enjoy a tricky scavenger hunt and see what exciting treasure we can find there. We’ll dine al fresco on our spoils! Cast off into uncharted territory in our Pirate best (we’ll make our own hats & eye patches) as we set sail in the Pirate Ship at Cates Park and search for hidden treasure at Ambleside.
\\ July 31st to August 4th ///
Get out your hiking shoes, grab a handful of trail mix, and fly high up to Grouse Mountain! Bears, birds of prey and crazy loggers are waiting for us there! Learn how the salmon find their way back home at the Fish Hatchery. Then we’ll hit the beach at Ambleside and be fish in the sea!
\\ August 7th to 11th (Monday is a holiday) //
Sporty stuff rules! We’ll reach for the top at The Edge Climbing Centre and participate in our own Field sports, Water sports and Races - but don’t squish that banana in the Banana Relay! Bring your bikes & helmets but leave your scooters and roller blades at home!
\\ August 14th to 18th //
Eat like a King, dress like a Queen and act like a Jester……but it won’t be complete without a Castle – a bouncy Castle, and our very own Magician! Create your own Crown Tiara and bejewelled flagstone. Top it off with a (sand) Castle competition at Ambleside Beach and cool down with a swim.
\\ August 21st to 25th //
Go back in time at Burnaby Village Museum to see how people lived in the olden days. Watch a theatre show and ride the Carousel horses. Switch to now and meet some real horses, chickens, cows and rabbits and all the other animals at Maplewood Farm!
\August 28th to September 1st //
It’s Corn Maze time again! Go on a Hay Ride, race your Maze car and picnic at the farm. To complete our Summer Camp capers we’ll be Beach Bums at Ambleside and wind the week up with an International Pot Luck Feast, when we can try all sorts of goodies from different cultures.
