What

There will be two regular weeks of summer camp, open to all ACC-VI members: a week in the alpine, great companions, great food, great climbing and hiking.

Again this year we’re designating the third week for families (no non-family units in Week 3 please). This is for any inter-generational combination: parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle with youth, minimum age 10 years.

A fourth ‘regular’ week will be added depending on demand.

(Please note: members with Vancouver Island and adjacent islands home addresses and postal codes are prioritized at this time – see Guidance document).

Cost

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 and how any surplus funds are refunded, as per ACCVI policy.

Family Week

Family units should pay for adults in full at the time of registration, and submit an application if you wish to apply for a bursary for youth members. The deadline for bursary applications is April 15th. We will confirm the bursary amount when we know the number of applicants, and ask for the balance of payment for youth by April 30th.
