Nature Vancouver Camp Committee organizes two annual summer camps. These camps are a week long and are held in wilderness areas in BC. Camps usually alternate between areas where members can drive in and where we use helicopters to fly in camp equipment and campers’ gear, with campers hiking in or opting to pay extra for helicopter ride.

For more information about the Camp, the Camp Committee, or suggestions for future camps please contact Camp Committee Chair Nigel Peck.
