We would love to have your student at the highlight of the summer for our Village Youth Summer Camps. This will be a jam-packed couple of days on Vancouver Island/Thetis Island full of giant group games, food, morning and night sessions, waterfront activities, campfire time, and a bunch of prizes. The goal is to build a strong community and to grow closer to Jesus. We hope to see your student there!

FAQ’S:

+ What should students expect?

Students will hear the message of Jesus and have fun doing it. They will be in a safe, secure, and loving environment where they will have the opportunity to experience God-centered community by hanging out with friends and Village Youth volunteers.

+ Do you have to be a Christian to attend?

Village Youth welcomes everyone. We unashamedly preach and teach Jesus, but we try hard to create an environment where everyone can belong.

+ Where are you guys staying?

Village Youth students, volunteers, and staff are staying at a secure camp on Vancouver Island.

+ 1:1 assistance?

We want to partner with parents to make sure that your students have an incredible experience. If your student needs 1 on 1 assistance we will partner your student with one of our experienced youthleaders to give them the time and attention necessary for their time with us.

+ What are the dress requirements for my student?

The dress code, along with a packing list, is included in the email sent two weeks before we go.

+ What type of activities will my student be participating in?

A typical day at Camp starts with time in the Bible during our morning session. Then, we spend the morning in a combination of games and cabin times. Next, it’s lunch and free time. After this, we participate in some more organzied activities and head off to our evening sessions. Every day ends with a small group time in the room. Finally, it’s lights out so everyone is well-rested to do it all again.

+ Who can attend?

Students from grades 6-8 in September will attend Jr. Youth Camp. Students in Grades 9-12 in September attend Sr. Youth Camp.

+ Will I know who my student's room leader will be?

Student will learn who their room leader is on the bus ride to Camp. We do this for two reasons:

  1. We are often finalizing rooming assignments right up until we leave. (For example, if a student wakes up sick on departure day and can’t make the trip, that might change rooming assignments)

  2. We don’t want students to say no to Camp because they didn't get a certain room leader. We’ve seen so many great friendships start with, “We met when we were in the same room at Camp...”

+ What will students eat throughout the week?

Students will be responsible for meals on the ferries. We will provide all other breakfast, lunch and dinners. If your child has food allergies, be sure to note that on their sign-up form.

+ Do volunteers have Criminal Record Checks (CRC's)?

All Village Youth volunteers must complete an approved CRC check before serving.
