2022-2023 Chilliwack Charis Adventure Day Camp
Ready for an adventure!

This fun-filled day of activities is for everyone in Kindergarten and up, and each participant can engage at their own level. There will be plenty of opportunities to get to know your teammates as you adventure from one station to the next, and we’ll put participants in groups of a similar age wherever possible. This Learning Camp addresses competencies in Physical and Health Education.

Parents are welcome to attend as participants or non-participants.

LOW ROPES CHALLENGE COURSE – The Low Ropes Challenge Course is an effective way to create a shared experience where everyone begins at the same level. With the support of their team members, participants challenge their individual comfort zones. Each team member fills a unique role to enable the team to master the course. Each participant leaves feeling empowered and encouraged.

CLIMBING WALL – The four-story-high climbing wall is the ultimate test of strength and agility. With climbing routes for the first-time climber and the skilled veteran, this activity is perfect for all ages, sizes, and skill levels.

ARCHERY – Our outdoor archery range is suitable for ​all ages and skill levels. Charis staff will give instruction on safety procedures and techniques.

BALL SPORTS – field games and/or Gaga Ball.

Thank you to our HCOS PAC for their generous support of our HCOS Enrolled students!
