Campgrounds: Sign up to Participate Here!
The Care Camps of Canada, donation amount for 2022 totaled $7,975.00. These funds were raised from our BCLCA Members, Auction 22, (which was held in May) and from other donations received. We could not have done this without your continued support. The funds raised in 2022 helped send another 4 children to a specialized oncology camp – a place where these kids can forget about the chemo, the radiation, and all the hard stuff that comes with cancer…. and just be a child again.
Camping is an affordable family activity that promotes a sense of community, creates life-long memories and encourages Canadians and International visitors to discover Canada’s rich landscape and engage with nature.
Participating British Columbia Campgrounds are listed on the map below – Many of these RV Parks also participated earlier this year in the Canadian RVing and Camping Week celebrations from May 23 – 28, 2023. Advance reservations are recommended.
