  • What a wonderful list this is! I am heading to Vancouver this summer with my two kids – 3 and 5 and I am wondering if you know of any outdoorsy, fun camp that they can attend together? Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Carmen, thanks for stopping by. This list is from several years ago, check out our list from last year. Most of these will be running this year as well. In terms of camps for 3 and 5 year olds together, that’s a tough one. Most camps will do 2-3 year olds together for shorter time periods, and 4-6 year olds, or even 5-6 year olds. Your best bet would be to check out the community centres (go to to see a comprehensive list) and see if you could get them in either the same camp, or ones that run at the same time. Best of luck!
