Finishing Strong! Learning Camps 2020/2021

This year Teachers and Coordinators have done an amazing job of reimagining what Learning Camps could look like and have been providing families with creative educational activities to supplement their home learning experience. From adapting group sizes, moving outdoors, and going virtual, Learning Camps have been as popular as ever. 

2020/2021 is not over yet! With Spring bringing warmer weather and new ideas, there are still a number of exciting camps to come this year. Virtual opportunities are available for all ages, with camps occurring almost every week on a variety of topics. Upcoming host organizations include:

  • The Royal Tyrrell Museum
  • Bamfield Marine Sciences Center
  • Pacific Museum of Earth
  • The Honey Bee Center
  • Lynn Canyon Ecology Center.

We have some fan-favorite speakers like Mike Lowery coming back for new offerings. Finally, face to face family hike days are set to occur in different locations around the province and will be posted on the Learning Groups website as they become available.

Don’t miss out on these upcoming opportunities and more! Subscribe to e-alerts on the Learning Groups website so that you are notified as applications open for new offerings.

Spotlight Camp:

Join us on June 2nd for a virtual presentation by returning presenter Eric Brunt to share about the completion of his independent film “Last Ones Standing”. In November 2020 students loved hearing from Eric about the importance of documenting the stories of our veterans and the process of following your creative dreams to make a film. He is returning for an update and to share about his film. Details and sign up can be found here.

Planning for 2021/2022 has already begun. As we are already looking ahead to next year, we are excited to share our plans with you! Stay tuned for another article next month featuring our CC/ CC+ locations as well as some details about Learning Camps planned for the fall.
