    Mountain Skills Academy & Adventure’s certified guides and instructors provide 24-hour supervision for camp participants. The team is made up of professional adult guides and outdoor educators with years of experience. As required by law, each guide goes through a criminal record check. We are committed to providing responsible supervision by our guides who enjoy teaching and working with kids and youth. We set a maximum of 6 campers per guide during off-site outings and 8 campers per guide for on-site activities and overnight to ensure the safety and security of your child.

  • What are the camp accommodations?

    Camp participants will stay in one of 9 rustic heated cabins at the Cheakamus Centre. The centre is tucked away in a beautiful forested setting. Each cabin is equipped with 2 shared washrooms and single bunk beds. Each cabin sleeps up to 16 campers. To see a layout of the cabins, click here.

  • What food is included?

    All meals are included with the exception of breakfast on the first day and dinner on the last day. Please do not bring other food or snacks to camp.

    Food is prepared and served by the Cheakamus Centre’s chefs. Cheakamus supplies locally sourced and thoughtfully prepared meals. Meals contain wholesome ingredients, making food from scratch, using herbs and vegetables from their garden. They can accommodate a wide range of special dietary needs, food intolerances and allergies without having to radically alter the menu, minimizing ‘special’ servings. Sugar reduced diets, vegetarian, vegan meals, gluten free, and other food allergies are all far easier to accommodate when you use whole ingredients and are certain of their source.

    *Cheakamus Centre is a nut-restricted facility, which includes all meals provided by Cheakamus Centre. Any snacks containing nuts or nut products brought in by a camper are strictly prohibited. This also includes any skin care and hair products that may contain nuts.
