Check out Jim’s latest post on his Shuswap passion blog at http://shuswappassion.ca/shuswap/summer-is-for-camping/ for a review of the numerous summer camps on the Shuswap.
A new science-based day camp for youngsters from grade one to grade six called Shuswap Wild Wonders offers three programs in July. The youngest campers spend three days in the White Lake region learning about local flora and fauna and gaining team-building, problem solving and leadership skills. The four-day camp for the grade 3-4 students includes one overnight tenting experience in the Larch Hills. Instructors for the camps include horticulturists, biologists, artists, and teachers and activities focus on hiking many of the routes established by the Shuswap Trail Alliance and learning about the Shuswap watershed.
