  • Is transportation included?

    The camps include transportation to and from each day’s activities.

    You must make arrangements to get your child to camp on the first day and from camp on the last day.

  • 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.
