Ucluelet Nature Kids is based in Ucluelet, British Columbia on the wild west coast of Vancouver Island. This program is run in partnership with Ucluelet Parks and Rec. We offer seasonal camps for locals and visitors that celebrate the unique experience of being a child in this incredible environment. Combining elements of the Forest School philosophy and the 8 Shields mentoring model, we offer nature connection programs for children ages 4 - 12.

Join us for the experience!

Below is a list of our past camps. There may be new additions for 2019!
