We support, equip, promote and accredit camps in BC.
We see a thriving camping community in BC where people are challenged and equipped to be the best version of themselves.
These values guide and direct our decisions and behaviour:
Development - There are many layers to development and they are all important. Social, ethical, emotional, physical, cognitive, and leadership competencies are developed in a wide spectrum of ways among camps.
Community - Camps in BC understand that there is a bigger picture. As such, we see other camps as family, rather than competitors, while we work together towards a common goal.
Quality - We want camps to continue to push the threshold of excellence whether it be bolstering weaknesses or leaning into strengths.
Safety - It is important for participants to be safe both physically and emotionally. Camps must mitigate and resolve dangerous scenarios as well as foster acceptance, inclusivity, and comradery.
