Camp OC

Penticton Camps

Our educational day camps are full of interactive fun, adventure and learning. Campers enjoy small class sizes and each day includes breaks for campers to get outside and enjoy the sunshine or burn off some energy in the gym. This year campers can choose from science, computers, art and trades camps.

Drop off for camps is between 8 and 8:30 a.m. Pick up is between 3:30 and 3:45 p.m. Specific details on where drop off and pick up will take place will be communicated prior to the start of camp

Cohort-based camps and COVID-19 safety protocols limits our ability to mix and combine campers from different camps.

**Please Note:**

Register your child NOT yourself. If you have two children, they need to be registered separately.
