More Information

The BC Camping Committee will provide interested Ranger Units with step-by-step instructions, themed activities, schedules, kit lists, draft Safe Guide paperwork, and more, to make it easy for them to host a SparkLE Bring a Friend Day Camp in their local community. We will also offer a variety of pre-camp training and support sessions for those youth members who choose to participate. Training, support sessions, and electronic resources are all free of charge.
