Adventure Day Camps

mini explorers (3-4), Juniors (5-7), kids (8-12) & youth (12-16) can explore the Mountain & have fun in nature's backyard. 

Mini Explorers Club 
(3-4 years)

This half-day program is packed with adventure, play, friendships and plenty of space for little imaginations to run wild in the great outdoors. Each week has a different mountain theme and all adventures are enhanced by games, stories and crafts to maximize fun.

Our Mini Explorers club requires drop-off and collection at the top of Grouse Mountain. To ensure safe, enjoyable, learning we have a strict ratio of 1 Camp Leader to every 4 Campers. Each session Campers will be provided with a healthy snack and juice.
Join us this summer for our new Mini Explorers Camp
