Fraser River Discovery Centre is getting set to offer summer camps in July and August.

Salmon, science, voyageurs and more will be among the topics offered at camps for children aged six to 11. Kids will have their choice of attending four different camps, with each session being offered twice during an eight-week period this summer.

“Our summer camps continue to grow in popularity, and we are happy to bring them back again for July and August 2022,” said Stephen Bruyneel, the centre’s director of external relations and development.

Fraser River Discovery Centre has planned this summer’s offerings on the basis of what’s been popular in past years.

* Spectacular Salmon will give campers a chance to learn the ecological, economic and cultural importance of Fraser River salmon.

* Voyageur Adventure will take young explorers on a journey through history in the footsteps of Simon Fraser and his fellow voyageurs.

* Wonders of the Watershed is all about the Fraser River watershed and the plants, animals and geography that make it unique.

* Science on the Fraser will give young scientists an opportunity to explore the mysterious underwater world of B.C.’s longest river.

“Given our success in the past, we are confident that these camps will once again be a hit with our young guests,” Bruyneel said. “And perhaps even more important for parents – they will continue to be safe! We have now successfully run summer and spring break camps during the pandemic with no problems. Our updated COVID-19 safety and health plan will continue to be in place to help ensure a safe experience for everyone.”

All four camps will run from 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday in July and August. Each one-week camp costs $250.

Registration for the camps is now available at
