Camp Odyssey has two locations in Kimberley for two different age groups. The Happy Hikers group of 7-12 year-olds is based out of Kimberley Independent School (KIS). Campers will spend time in the Kimberley Nature Park, Kimberley Community Garden, and along Rails to Trails. Each Day begins at KIS and ends at the Kimberley Splash Park (Rotary Park). 

The Nearby Naturalists group of 5-8 year olds spend less time walking and more time exploring and crafty. Calling the Lions Park in Marysville “home base”, they will stay close by visiting different locations within Marysville for four days. For the fifth day we will head into the Kimberley Nature Park to explore the magic of Eimer’s Lake.

Please note that the older group will walk approx. 2-6 km throughout the day and the younger group can expect to walk approx. 1-3 km. Indoor washroom facilities may not be available every day, so campers will learn how to use bush bathrooms.

 

Camp Hours are from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.
