Parents prepare as summer camp registration opens up in the City of Victoria


The City of Victoria has officially opened up registration for all summer camps this year!

There are several camps to choose from this year for kids aged from 3 to 14-years-old and the City says that registration fills up fast.

“From outdoor explorations to creative workshops, our camps offer a diverse range of activities designed to ignite imaginations, foster friendships and create lasting memories for your children,” said the City of Victoria in a media release. 

“Immerse your little ones in a world of excitement as they embark on adventures led by experienced instructors who prioritize safety and fun.”

There are Swim and Splash camps for kids to learn swimming skills and have fun with their peers at the pool, there are playground camps for kids to play different types of games like Survivor, Ninja Academy, Space Race and Into the Wild and there are specialty camps as well.

Some of the specialty camps include activities like learning computer skills, claymation, video game creation and app building and there are engineering camps where kids can learn to build robots or play Dungeons and Dragons. 

The sports camps include skateboarding skillbuilding, scootering, soccer, roller skating, basketball, tennis, ultimate frisbee or a combination of some of these sports. 

For skateboarding, there is also a girls and LGBTQIA2S+ only opportunity to learn to skate. 

Kids can also engage in longer camps such as a camping trip up near Tofino. 

This is just the tip of the iceberg in the camps that are available this summer throughout July and August. 

The City says their goal is to have every kid feel free to engage in the recreation opportunities of their choice in a safe, meaningful and inclusive manner. 

They say that families who need one-on-one inclusion support for their kids can take part in a summer camp inclusion program which started on Monday, April 15th. 

These families can have their kids have up to three weeks of inclusion support at no extra cost, so they can share in the same experiences as every kid taking part in summer camps.

And remember that camps fill up to capacity quickly so don’t procrastinate!
