SEAPARC Summer Camp Programs

SEAPARC is getting ready to welcome children for summer camps, which begin on June 29th. A number of strategies will be implemented to provide a safe and healthy environment for staff and participants, following the guidelines set forth by the Provincial Health Officer, Work Safe BC, BCCDC, the BCRPA and Island Health.

  • Camp capacity has been reduced
  • Activities will take place mainly outdoors and will be modified to support physical distancing
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols will be in place
  • Additional health and safety protocols will be implemented

All camps will take place at the SEAPARC facility, and on the grounds and surrounding area that are within walking distance. Those already registered will be contacted directly regarding options. General summer camp registration reopens on June 8th.

Please note that some of the summer camp program options previously offered will no longer be available. Registration for all other programs that are noted in SEAPARC's Summer Active Living Guide including fitness, aquatic and community recreation, will be on hold until further notice.

SEAPARC staff look forward to providing a safe and fun summer for all participants.

As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to impact our community, SEAPARC will offer payment plan options for those in financial need who wish to register for summer camps. For information on payment plan options and for those unable to pay by credit card, please contact us at 250.642.8000. If we are unable to proceed with any summer programs, a full refund will be provided.

Staff continue to actively monitor the status of the COVID-19 pandemic on a daily basis and adjust precautionary procedures as dictated by the Office of BC’s Chief Medical Officer.  For information on the CRD’s response to COVID-19, please visit www.crd.bc.ca/covid
