ArrowFlight home to winter fun

Snow or no snow, kids can have a blast at Spallumcheen’s Camp ArrowFlight over the Christmas break.

Snow or no snow, kids can have a blast at Spallumcheen’s Camp ArrowFlight over the Christmas break.

The camp, located along Salmon River Road, offers camping and outdoor programs for children, youth and families.

Camp ArrowFlight will host two winter camps, Dec. 18 to 21, and Dec. 28 to 31, for kids aged seven to 12. Campers will learn about environmental stewardship and experience outdoor activities while also learning about the importance of being a part of a team. The kids will also learn about themselves through adventurous and active learning.

Activities include geo-caching, scavenger hunt, archery, nightly bonfires, team building, sledding, snowshoeing and winter crafts.

“We have a ton of fun during the winter camps,” said Kylah Bryde, Camp ArrowFlight director.

“When there’s a lot of snow, we have tug-o-wars, make snow caves and snow forts, and even if it’s muddy, we still do a lot. The kids have a lot of fun.”

The cost of each camp is $225, which includes three nights and four days.

All camps include meals, activities and accommodations.

At the same time as both camps, kids aged 13 to 17 can take part in counsellor-in-training (CIT) programs for $75.

Those who have signed up for the second winter camp,  and who wish to, there is a chance for campers and counsellors-in-training to extend their stay to a New Year’s Eve party for only $25.

Camp ArrowFlight is offering to pick up and drop off kids from the Kelowna club location on Dec. 31 at 12:30 p.m., and return them Jan. 1 at 3:30 p.m. This is for kids aged six to 13 and costs $125, and includes transportation from the Kelowna, Lake Country, Vernon or Armstrong Boys and Girls Club locations.

Registration for any of the winter camps is Dec. 16. Registration forms are at every Okanagan Boys and Girls Club, or online at

Completed forms and full payment can be returned to any club location.
