Soar to The Peak of Vancouver to connect with nature, build life-long friendships, and try new adventures as part of Grouse Mountain Summer Adventure Camps. These week-long camps are perfect for children aged 5-14 because they offer an opportunity to be outdoors and experience new themes each week.

Grouse Mountain’s Summer Adventure Day Camps are dialed into what kids find interesting: adventure, survival, hiking, ziplining, nature art, and survival games. The activities planned each week highlight the unique landscape of Grouse Mountain and are focused on providing kids with experiences they can only have at The Peak of Vancouver and not at any summer camp throughout the city. The campers’ days will be filled with fresh air and exciting adventures guaranteed to have them chatting excitedly for the drive home. Each camp is grouped by age to ensure the level of difficulty in the activities is both challenging and age-appropriate.

Pathfinders (Age 5-7): The smallest explorers are guaranteed to have a blast at Grouse Mountain Summer Adventure Camps as they choose between two unique options. Those who are looking for true adventure can opt into the Adventure is Calling camp, where they will see a lumberjack show, learn from First Nations artists and create their own wood pendant art, participate in axe throwing and logger games (safely, of course!), practice their archery skills, and play tons of outdoor nature games. If your child is looking for more of a thrill and challenge, then the Mountain Explorers and Survival camp will be right up their alley! Your child will learn crucial survival skills such as situational and outdoor awareness, survival bag setup and survival knowledge, go for a backcountry hike, play survival games, and even learn how to build their own shelter! Where else in Metro Vancouver can you learn these valuable and engaging skills?

Alpine Blazers (Age 8-12): This signature experience offers the same great choices between two themes (Adventure is Calling¬† & Mountain Explorers and Survival), but with added elements of challenge and age-appropriate activities to ensure campers are connecting to nature in a meaningful and engaging way. In the Adventure is Calling option, Alpine Blazer campers will explore the Peak Chair, learn about BC wildlife and wildlife safety by looking for tracks, scat, and skulls. Campers will play the popular and beloved “Capture the Flag” game as they build friendships and make connections to last a lifetime. When your child enrolls in Mountain Explorer and Survival camp, they will spend their days learning and practicing their geocaching skills and navigation, learning about bushcraft, and going on two half-day hikes to Dam Mountain and Thunderbird Ridge.
