2021 OVERNIGHT SUMMER CAMP UPDATE
Typically, we open summer camp registration in the first week of January. Right now, we feel it is still too early to know whether we will be able to run our overnight or day camp programs for summer 2021. From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in B.C., Evans Lake has remained committed to providing programs to youth as long as it is safe and in line with the recommendations from the BC CDC and our Provincial Health Officer. Since March 2020, the tools to manage COVID-19 and the science to understand it have improved, which have allowed us to implement strong safety plans. But with the introduction of vaccines and kids having returned to schools, the landscape is shifting again, so we would like more time to see how things evolve. As such, we are delaying the opening date for registration at this time. We will update you again in late February on our summer camp programs, as well as the registration date. For those who deferred or donated their camp fees and are therefore eligible for early registration, you will receive an update on the early registration details in February as well.
The information noted below is for future camp seasons.
Evans Lake is remote, yet accessible, unspoiled, pristine, mountain co-ed summer camp for kids and youth ages 8-16. Our fun and educational Summer and Winter Camp programs balance opportunities for learning with ample time for play and adventure! A core belief of Evans Lake, is that you leave our camp with a deeper knowledge and admiration of the forest and the environment that surrounds us. One of the best ways to learn is by having fun and getting your hands dirty. Daily programming is held in the forest and includes stream rehabilitation, shelter building, erosion reduction, animal conservation, and general forest management.
Optional add on activities are available for certain age groups and can be added during the registration process. Please note, there is limited availability for the optional activity.
Finally, if your chosen session is full, we encourage you to add your name to the waitlist, as spots do open up leading up to camp. Please email us with your name, your child’s name, child’s gender, the session name, your phone number and email address. We will be sure to add their name to the waitlist and call you once a spot becomes available. (Please note, we will only call if a space opens up.)
Winter camp 2021 is pending due to COVID-19. Details on registration or cancellation will be posted in September or October.
Experience Like No Other’ -Evans Lake Winter Camp
For those of you who haven’t been before, Evans Lake Winter Camp is an awesome opportunity to re-connect with friends from the summer and also meet new ones. While the overall format of the camp is very similar to summer camp, there is a whole bunch of new activities to explore. Evans Lake’s Winter Camp Activities include (depending on weather) sledding, building enormous snow creatures and snowshoeing. This program is an all ages camp for kids aged 8-16. All the cabins and buildings are fully winterized with heating and insulation. If the lake is not frozen, we will even do a Polar Bear Swim. Don’t worry, we have the fire burning in the rec. hall to warm them up after!
