  • Is camp a good fit for my family?
    Note: Wonderstruck campers are aged 5-10. LITs are 11-13. At Wonderstruck Camp, we prioritize the readiness and success of every camper. Here's what you should consider: 1. Outdoor Experience: Expect your camper to spend a significant portion of their day outdoors. We firmly believe in the enriching power of nature for learning and personal growth. 2. Healthy Risk-Taking: Our activities are designed to foster healthy risk-taking in a supervised environment. From forest runs to climbing adventures, we encourage campers to challenge themselves safely. Camp Readiness Checklist Before registering, ensure your camper can: Follow directions and safety guidelines from staff. Engage and participate positively within the camp community. Interact in a manner that ensures their safety and that of others. Independently use the restroom during camp hours. Concerns or Additional Support? If you answered "no" to any of these questions or if your camper requires special accommodations, please reach out to our camp office at 604-841-0153 or via email before registering. We're here to ensure every camper has a fulfilling experience at Wonderstruck Camp.

Imagine a weeklong scavenger hunt inside your favourite curl-up-next-to-the-fire fantasy adventure book: that's Wonderstruck.

LITs are invited to select their desired roles and sessions, and will be formally interviewed by the camp's Director to confirm a good fit.

Limited Visitors: To maintain our screening efforts and ensure everyone's safety, we restrict visitors' access to our camp premises. Outdoor Activities: Spending time outdoors is not only enjoyable but also contributes to overall health. That's why we prioritize outdoor activities, providing ample opportunities for campers to explore and engage with nature.

Creative Thinking 

Imaginative play helps develop innovative, outside-the-box thinking and the ability to see new possibilities. 

Our world needs new solutions more than ever. Developing this skill in our kids is crucial. 

grow through imagination

Independent Decision-Making

Kids' choices and actions are linked to outcomes within an immersive storyline.  Instead of a set of rigid instructions, kids are given control over their own experience. This fosters reflection on their own feelings, thoughts, decisions, and the impact of their actions.

Collaborative Problem-Solving

Working through story-based challenges allows kids to solve problems in a safe and controlled environment. Advancing the plot through co-operatiion with peers builds teamwork skills.
