Rotary Camp Tillicum

Thank You for an Amazing Summer!

This past summer camp season was filled with laughter, fun adventures, life lessons, and many memorable moments for campers and staff. We had 1418 children attend camps this summer and over 100 youth were employed as Summer Camp Counsellors and Supervisors. Each year at camp, kids get the opportunity to explore different areas of interest, make new friends and try different things that they wouldn’t get to try anywhere else.

As we bid farewell to Y Summer Camps 2023, we want to express our gratitude to all the campers, parents, and staff who made these experiences this year unforgettable! We cannot wait for next year to see all of our new and returning campers, along with staff!

There are low ropes, archery, canoeing and even indoor activities to get out of the sun.
