The BC Camping Association exists as a vibrant industry-leader because over 55 camps in British Columbia believe that safety and collaboration are the foundation upon which fun and educational programs are built.
When a camp has been in operation for one year it can apply to become a member.
Once a camp is a member (see Types of Membership below), they may pursue accreditation (recommended for all camps).
Become a member by contacting us.
