Fill out survey and win a summer camp

The City of Campbell River Recreation and Culture department youth team is starting to plan their Summer Camps.

The youth team is surveying the community to see what the kids – and their parents - are interested in doing at camp this summer.

Anyone who completes a survey will have a chance to win one week at Haig Brown Camp.

Haig Brown Camp is an outdoor-focused camp located on the beautiful heritage grounds of the historical Haig Brown site along the Campbell River.

To find the online survey, go to the City of Campbell River website and Click on the Recreation link, or use this link here.

Summer camps can foster children’s independence, leadership, a positive identity, healthy peer relationships, friendships, and an interest in adventure and exploration according to the Canadian Congress on Leisure Research.  Besides providing an opportunity for growth and development, lasting memories are created when kids are at a camp that they enjoy.

Last year, the recreation department registered 750 kids (ranging in age from 3 – 17 years) into summer camps over eight weeks.

This summer, the City wants to make those camps an even better fit for those kids by getting your feedback on the types of activities, locations and times you would like the camps to offer.
