New This Year: Family Week

We’re trying something new this year – adding in a Family Week! There will be the regular three weeks of summer camp that you all know about – a week in the alpine, great companions, great food.

But this year we’re adding in an extra week for families. This is for any inter-generational combination: parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle with youth. Any adults who would like to help and share this week will also be welcome on an availability basis.


Regular summer camp: $600 per person

This includes heli flight in and out and full use of the camp facilities. See the Summer Camp General Information Guide for all details on how the camp works. Any surplus funds will be refunded, as per ACCVI policy.

Family Week: Bursaries are available

Please contact Catrin Brown: or Derek Sou: for all information and planning for the Family Week.
