A four-day sleep-away camp for youth aged 8-12 who, for social or financial reasons, could not otherwise attend camp.
The British Columbia Youth Parliament is a non-profit, non-partisan, and non-denominational youth service organization. Each year, we fulfill our motto of “Youth Serving Youth” through a variety of individual and group projects organized to serve the youth of British Columbia. The largest of these is a four-day sleep-away camp hosted by Parliamentarians for youth between the ages of 8-12. Camp Phoenix is, above all else, designed to give youth who could not attend camp the opportunity to do so. Beyond recognizing the social and developmental benefits that come with participating, we, as a youth group, feel that every child deserves to experience the fun, educative experience of camping in a safe and supportive environment.
This year, Camp Phoenix will be held
August 27-31 at Camp Barnard in Sooke, BC!
