As we continue to learn more about the Covid-19 pandemic we are currently limited spaces in each weeks program to 8 allowing us to keep group size to 10 people including our staff. At this point we are optimistic that our camps will be able to run in July/August, but should that change we will provide credits for future programs or refunds for registered campers. If we are able to increase group sizes the maximum we take into our camps each week is 12 campers to ensure a low ratio environment for all campers to learn in.
Activities*: mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, adventure parks, and more!
Each week will see an exciting blend of activities, with all lessons delivered by certified instructors. If your child is looking to find their next passion this is a great chance for them to try all that the Okanagan offers in one action packed week!
- Day 1 - ½ Day Climb ½ day at AirHouse Kelowna
- Day 2 - ½ day mountain bike ½ day hike
- Day 3 - Adventure Park
- Day 4 - ½ Day mountain bike ½ Amazing Race
- Day 5 - Hike and Explore Summer @ Big White
*Activities may alter due to weather and availability, Activities may also be adjusted due to Covid-19 concerns. We will continue to monitor the best available information and make adjustments to our programming as needed.
Included in the registration fee is all transportation to and from each activity, access to mountain bike and helmets, all climbing equipment needed and instruction.
Camps are open to ages 10+ and are focused on a beginner and intermediate level for all activities included.
Campers are introduced to the sport of rock climbing at a local climbing gym. Campers will learn how to belay, rope climb and boulder in an indoors environment. These skills can help develop a lifetime passion for the sport, as well as set campers up with the skills needed to enjoy outdoor climbing!
Campers will be introduced to the joys of mountain biking. In the morning we will introduce the campers to biking with a lesson from a certified PMBI instructor. This will include some skill development lessons to ensure everyone is comfortable on their bike and ready to tackle some off-road terrain. The half day sessions each Tuesday will be a skill assessment and development session. Wednesdays each week will see campers trying out their skills on a variety of trails in Kelowna.
Bikes and helmets are provided. If campers have their own bikes they must have disc brakes and front suspension as a minimum and pass a check by our team to ensure they are in working order before they can be used for the camps.
With so many great hikes here in the Okanagan how can we choose where to go? Hike locations will change based on weather and the week so that campers who join us for more than 1 week will have an opportunity to experience a variety of that fantastic places we can hike. Campers will learn about some native flora and fauna in the region and be introduced to the "Leave No Trace" ethics that will serve them in all their outdoor pursuits.
