Metro Vancouver may have the reputation of being a last-minute-city. But that’s definitely NOT the case when it comes to signing up for Summer Camps. Families do their research early and grab spots for the kids before Spring has even arrived. Summer is the perfect time for your kids to try something new: a new sport, art form, or adventure. Sure we all need to figure out a way to keep the offspring busy during July & August, so why not make the experience enjoyable for everyone? Family Fun Vancouver has sourced fantastic summer camps happening across Metro Vancouver & the Lower Mainland (from Whistler to Hope and even Vancouver Island). We are adding more camps to this list on a regular basis. (If you run a summer camp and want to be part of our Summer Camp Guide, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org)
