Catching the Spirit Youth Society

Youth Leadership through Outdoor Experience

Burnaby Lake Regional Park

Spend your afternoons jumping into nature with CTS! Our Ranger Day Programs are offered at our Burnaby Lake Nature House location on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Ranger Days allow for youth who would like to get the CTS experience in a day camp setting. Our Rangers do a variety of activites, such as:

  • hiking
  • learning about native plant and wildlife
  • survival training
  • navigation
  • public education 
  • and so much more!

Where: Burnaby Lake Nature House - 4519 Piper Ave. Burnaby BC V5A 3B5

Want to get involved with Catching the Spirit but your not sure about staying overnight in one of our Spirit Steward camps? Then our Ranger Days are just for you! Our Ranger Day programs allow youth to get a taste of the CTS experience in 2 of our park locations. On Thursdays our Rangers work in one of our two Community Gardens helping to maintain and improve them throughout the summer. Some of the tasks may include:

Overnight In-Park Training weekend for our awesome leadership teams at their primary park locations. This is another must attend event for Peer Leaders and we hope to see you all there!

Where: Your primary park locations Tynehead, Burnaby Lake or Pacific Spirit Park. (check our website if you need addresses)

Dates: Saturday June 20th - Sunday June 21st 2015

Times: Drop off is at 9:00 am on Saturday and Pick up is at noon on Sunday. 

Please remember to bring all your camping gear (including your own set of dishes) and, off course, have fun!

Get outside this summer!  Camp in tents, cook meals, work on hands-on stewardship projects, jump into nature and work as a team!

Overnight CTS camps are a great way to get engaged and challenge your leadership skills!

For more information check out our Spirit Steward Program page.

Come out to Burnaby Lake for a morning of cheering on runners in the Rubber Ducky Half Marathon. In exchange for us being the race marshals, CTS earns money for our programs (this means more marshmallow-eating at camps!)

It's an easy, fun way to spend the day & it helps CTS out so much! So come on out & give back to the program you love so much!


Where We Are and How to Get There
