Now is the time to think about how you want your kids to spend the summer! Why not try out our Conservation Camps for Kids at Bear Claw Lodge? Our focus is for the kids to have fun while learning life skills, being safe in the wilderness, teaching an appreciation for our watershed and a respect for the outdoors. Some of the activities we do are: Trail Riding, Horsemanship, Swift Water Safety, River Rafting, Kayaking, Picking Wild Berries & Making Jam, GPS & Mapping, Knot Tying, Campfire Cooking & Camping, Archery, Fishing, Swimming, Snorkeling with Salmon, Making Bread, Bear Aware, Saving Salmon Fry and Food Facts. Guest instructors include Raven Rescue, Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition, Fishing Guides, Fisheries and local conservation and wildlife authorities.
We have developed our own version of ‘The Amazing Race’ and Mantracker that has proved to be a favourite with the kids.
Other than the school based camps we host in June and late August, there are three main camps. July 10-17, July 20-27 & August 7-14. If your child is from the Pacific North West, they qualify for a much reduced fee of $749 thanks to some generous kids’ camp sponsors.
All councilors working with kids on the water are Swiftwater Rescue Technicians and all councilors have First Aid, up to and including Level 3. They carry SAT phones and/or walky talkies, first aid kits, allergy supplies and survival equipment on all excursions.
