Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) offers spring day camps for children ages 7 to 11. Embark on an exciting educational adventure amongst the giant trees, sandy beaches and hidden wetlands of Stanley Park. Spot wild animals like otters and beavers, have a blast splashing at the beach, and learn while spending valuable time outdoors.

Spring day camps are week-long. Camps run outdoors, rain or shine 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Aftercare available from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. is also available. We meet at the SPES office (610 Pipeline Road) then campers accompany their camp leaders into new areas of the Park to explore the forests, Beaver Lake, Lost Lagoon, the Seawall and more!

Please note a detailed Parent Information Package and Camp Policies will be sent to you via email, once you’ve registered your child(ren).
