Kids Club member discount

Kids Club members receive a discount when using the Kids Club discount code ($15 for week-long camps and $5 for one-day camps). Please check your email for this code or contact our summer camp team if you have not received it or are unsure if your child is a Kids Club member. All campers receive a complimentary Kids Club membership when registered for a summer camp. All existing Kids Club members receive a complimentary membership renewal.

Age range

Please adhere to the age range posted. Our camps are planned for the age range and having younger or older campers in these camps can be disruptive to the learning experience of all participants. No exceptions to the age ranges posted will be made unless our camps are not full and we are able to accommodate your request. This means that only two weeks before a camp date are we able to consider any age exceptions. If you would like to be put on an age exception waitlist please let us know which location and date you are interested in and your child’s year of birth. Please note, even if camps do not fill up, we may not be able to approve all age exception requests. If you register a child in a camp that is outside the age range, without our consent, you will not be given a refund.

Hours

Fort St John: TBA

Prince George: TBA

Prince Rupert: Activities run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Parents are welcome to drop off their child(ren) between 9:00 and 9:30 and pick up between 3:30 and 4:00.

Refund policy

A full refund will be issued with four weeks’ notice of cancellation. Refunds will be prorated for fewer than four weeks’ notice. Exceptions may be made for medical/family emergencies and will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please abide by the age range set for campers. Campers registered outside of the age range will not qualify for a refund.

Activities & time spent with animals

Campers are immersed in animal-themed activities and are challenged, in fun and engaging ways, to learn about responsible animal care, discover fascinating new animal facts and develop positive, respectful relationships between people, animals and nature. They leave feeling inspired to be ambassadors for animals in their community.

Activities range from active games, both indoors and outdoors, to quiet hands-on projects and include art projects, guest speakers and time with animals. All activities have been designed by the BC SPCA to incorporate positive animal welfare themes.

We do our best to provide some hands-on time with animals throughout the week though we know kids always want more. Sometimes, animal time is limited because we must be cognizant of the stress levels and health of the animals and that the shelter is a working adoption facility. When possible we do bring shelter-approved animals into the education space and allow campers to interact with them in small numbers. We take the campers on a shelter tour to introduce them to the animals and share the stories of how the animals came into our care.
