Let's Go Camping!
Camp Alexandra began providing summer camps for Vancouver’s orphans and underprivileged families in the early 1900’s. Our camping tradition has continued uninterrupted for more than 100 years, increasing capacity to meet growing demand. Situated on a historic site just minutes away from a beautiful beach and Blackie Spit Park, Camp Alexandra is a jewel on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Come and experience the beauty of our natural environment while building life-long friendships and participating in our exciting camp programs. There’s something for everyone!
Alexandra Neighbourhood House’s Fresh Air Day Camps introduce children to an exciting range of age-friendly fun activities in a safe and well-supervised environment. You can register children who have completed Kindergarten to Grade 6 for sessions throughout the summer.
2020 Supported Adult Camps are cancelled due to Covid-19. We hope to offer these camps again in June 2021.
Summers at Camp Alex are always brightened and sparked by the energy of our campers! As always, we kicked off the season with our two week-long residential camps for supported adults with cognitive and/or developmental disabilities. “Camp Away” and “Camp Fun Times” included talent nights, games, beach walks, dances, picnics, campfires, out-trips and special events. The camps provide a welcome getaway for its participants, as well as respite for caregivers.
And we have just ended another successful summer of fun for school age children. Our Fresh Air Daycamps included favourites such as arts and crafts, beach walks, and sports. Highlights included a scavenger hunt around the neighbourhood, presentations and hands-on learning from local artists and artisans and field trips to several diverse venues including the Vancouver Aquarium, a water park, Mann’s Berry Farm, Redwood Forest, A Rocha and Rogers Arena.
