Camp Locations

Where We Are and How to Get There

Our Spirit Steward program is offered at four Metro Vancouver regional parks (Burnaby Lake, Capilano River, Pacific Spirit and Tynehead), and our Spirit Ranger program at two: Burnaby Lake and Pacific Spirit. Check out the map above from the Metro Vancouver website for park locations.

Each of our camp locations is unique in its own way.

Cap River (Closed for the 2015 Summer Season due to Renovations) 
A residential camp located in Capilano River Regional Park in North Vancouver. Youth participating in this camp will stay in dorms at Camp Capilano. Although this is an indoor camp we like to spend the majority of our summer days outside enjoying our amazing surroundings – whether it’s playing a game of capture the flag in the forest, doing yoga on the bank of Capilano River, building fences as part of our environmental stewardship project, or sitting around the campfire with friends.

Join us and experience the magical world of Capilano River!

Tynehead
Located in the beautiful Tynehead Regional Park in Surrey, just a short walk to the Serpentine River. Youth will be tent camping at Raven’s Nest group campsite. There are many activities to enjoy including active games in the big field, hands on environmental work at the salmon hatchery, barbecued camp food and nightly campfires with new friends at the fire pit.

Pacific Spirit
Located in Pacific Spirit Regional Park at UBC within walking distance of the beaches. If you like camping in the wilderness then this is the camp for you! Hidden away in the trees of Pacific Spirit Park, CTS youth attending these camps have the privilege of staying in one of Vancouver`s most beautiful parks, and experiencing the best Vancouver has to offer from forests to beaches. Activities include environmental work in the bog, beach games, exploring trails in the park, and group cooking.

Burnaby Lake
Located in beautiful Burnaby Lake Regional Park. The youth participating in these tent camps have the privilege of experiencing this relatively untouched oasis in the middle of the city. The wildlife at this camp is amazing with beavers, birds, and bats galore! Activities can include working at the CTS garden (a source of veggies for the CTS camps), nightly activities on the boardwalk, active games, berry picking, canoeing, and outdoor cooking.
