Join us this summer!

We are so pleased to announce that Camp Narnia will be back in operation this summer! After its closure in 2006 we have been waiting for things to fall into place to make re-opening the camp possible and the time has come! Camp Narnia ran from 1986 - 2006 both on Salt Spring Island and near Shawnigan Lake. It is a non-denominational camp whose programs are based on the creative and imaginative children's stories, the Chronicles of Narnia. Camp Narnia is centered around storytelling, forest and nature activities, farming, unique crafts, theater and so much more. We work with the goal of fostering inclusiveness, respect and the opportunity for children to challenge themselves and to make long-lasting friendships.

This year we will be operating 3, week-long sessions: Aug. 7-13, Aug. 14-20 and Aug. 21-27. Sessions will be open to children ages 6-12. We will be renting facilities at Seven Springs Camp (see slide show below). Although we hope to have a permanent location in the future we are happy to be able to rent a facility which will enable us to run many of our traditional programs.

Our website will be up and running soon at www.campnarnia.com. Until then, information and updates will be available here. You can also email campnarnia@gmail.com.

We hope to see you at Camp Narnia this summer! Come dance the Pata Pata, join in the Talent Show, go on a Forest Adventure, play the Potato Game and eat Crepes on a Shovel! If you're a returning camper there will be familiar faces and activities and if you are new to Camp Narnia, an unforgettable week awaits!
