Fairfield Community Summer Camps (6-12 years)

Join us for 8 weeks of non-stop action and fun. We will be enjoying different themed activities, out trips and guests each week. Our camps are child-focused and activities are driven by the children and their interests. The goal of each week of camp is to facilitate exciting experiential learning and make meaningful connections within our community through projects, give-back opportunities and teachable moments. Of course there are also plenty of opportunities to be silly, get messy and chill out with friends! Any questions regarding programming and/or registration can be sent directly to camps@fairfieldcommunity.ca or call 250-382-4604
