CAMP BOB ADVENTURE CAMPS
Camp Bob is a unique, rustic outdoor summer adventure camp on Roberts Lake, Vancouver Island, BC. We welcome children and youth of all cultures and backgrounds and invite you to come and enjoy one of the best adventure-packed weeks of the summer. We are “off the grid” – meaning no electricity and technology free, and everything we do, we do together … and it all happens outside. We sleep in large outfitter tents on raised tent platforms. Each camper tent accommodates 2 counselors with up to 8 campers. We have an amazing waterfront program that includes: swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, tubing, rock climbing, archery, hiking, crafts, and group wide games,
We have camps for different age groups from 8 – 17, with over to 400 campers and staff participating in our summer camp programs. Camps begin Sunday 4 pm and end Friday 4 pm, with each camp having a maximum of 64 campers per week.Within an environment of fun & excitement, we teach positive Christian values, healthy lifestyle choices and life skills through group participation, dramas, firesides, music, devotional times, & one-on-one interaction. Our goal is to ultimately encounter the loving, transforming power of God through the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are committed to providing an awesome experience for your child within an atmosphere that is physically, emotionally and spiritually, non-threatening and full of fun.
OUTBOUND ADVENTURE CAMP
