Eco Detectives Spring Day Camps for Kids

Stanley Park Ecology Society’s spring day camps run March 13-17 and March 20-24.

Spring Day Camps

By popular demand, this spring Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) is offering 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 Package will be sent out 2 weeks prior to the start of camp
