Child Care

Day Camps

A great experience for children ages 5 -12!

We offer fun-filled full and half-day camps on school closure days such as Pro-D days and winter, spring, and summer vacations. Our Day Camps are open to all children, regardless of whether they are enrolled in our School Age Care Program.

School holidays are all about being active and engaged while also spending as much time as possible in the beautiful outdoors and at local city attractions like Science World, the Vancouver Aquarium, Grouse Mountain, Lynn Valley Ecology Centre, and many more. When we are not out exploring, our programs are held in our safe, fully licensed facilities. We offer a large variety of activities and theme days, all guided by our team of experienced and energetic leaders.


2023 Summer Day Camps

During the summer school break, Parkgate Society Child & Family Centre offers weekly camps (8 weeks total) for different age groups:

Camp Discoverers:  For children who have completed Kindergarten (max 30 children with a minimum of 3 leaders and several youth volunteers)

Before/After Camp Hours: 7:30am to 9:00am and after camp from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Camp Fees: $50, plus a $50 activity/fieldtrip add-on fee per week = Total $100 per week per child

Registration is now closed for 2023 Summer Camps. 

Parkgate Society’s Child & Family Centre and Seymour School Age Care have been chosen by the Province of BC to become $10 a Day ChildCareBC prototype sites. Thanks to this new designation, plus our existing reputation for quality child care, community demand for our services has greatly increased. As we can take only a limited number of children into our licensed camps, these camps will fill up quickly. We apologize for the stress this may cause some families.
