We are excited to start planning (and fundraising) towards a reopening of in-person camps in July 2022! Thank you for your patience as we navigate a good way forward amidst uncertainty.
It’s been two years since the pandemic began, and we want to honour all of those who were planning to attend the cancelled camp in 2020, including those who have since aged out of the camp age range. That’s why, for this year only, Registration will only be available for youth who previously applied in 2020. In addition, also for this year only, the age range for campers will be 16-23-year-olds.
CampOUT! is subject to COVID-19 safety protocols outlined by the BC Camping Association. Participant safety is a top priority of ours. We will require all campers and leaders to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (which includes the booster/s) and everyone will be asked to upload a copy of vaccine cards as part of registration. The camp will be smaller this year, and most programming will be held outdoors. Masks will will required in indoor program spaces and washrooms, and participants will eat meals with their cabin groups. For more information about COVID-19 and CampOUT! in 2022, visit this page: campout.ubc.ca/covid-safety.
As usual, please note that if campers are under 19, we will require parent/guardian signatures of consent to attend CampOUT! A $75 registration fee will also be required to hold your place at camp. This is the only fee required to attend, and if you are unable to pay it, please do not worry! Contact us and we can work out an alternative way of showing your commitment to attend camp.
If your circumstances change and you cannot attend CampOUT! any more, please contact us as soon as you can. This will help free up a spot for youth that did not apply in 2020 but registered for our virtual camp in 2021. Thank you!
Please note: Returning leaders will be key to supporting camp knowledge continuity as we learn to be together in a new way so we will not be posting applications for new leaders this year. We invite you to apply in 2023!
In the meantime, please note the following dates if we are able to proceed with an in-person camp:
May 20-23, 2021: Cabin Leaders Training Camp – Gambier Island
June 4&5: Leadership Team Orientation weekend -Vancouver
June 30-July 3: CampOUT! on Gambier Island (Please note that we will be honoring the 2020 camper applications for the 2022 camp before considering opening a new camper application process)
