This summer, kids can explore Cumberland Lake Park through a variety of new summer camps, offered by Lake Park Society.
In July and August, Forest or a Water Ramblers summer camps will offer opportunities to explore secret caves, discover waterfalls and paddle in a huge voyageur canoe. In addition, Camp Kin (2SLGBTQ+) welcomes all queer, trans, two-spirit, questioning and/or curious youth ages 8 to 12 for a week of inclusion, play, and celebration at Comox Lake.
The priority of this camp is to celebrate diversity by creating a safe space for each camper to connect with peers and camp instructors who share lived experiences. Registration for all camps is open at cumberlandlakepark.ca.
In addition to summer camps, Lake Park Society continues to offer free programs through a park interpreter program. The park interpreter will offer children’s ‘park ranger’ programs, all ages watershed canoe tours, as well as movie and music nights.
You don’t need to be staying at the campground to join in the fun, however, the total number of participants will be limited for certain programs. Participation will be on a first come, first serve basis, and online registration is recommended. All programs take place outside. Registration for these programs will open in May 2022 at cumberlandlakepark.ca
