Winter Youth Retreat

Camp Goodtimes is happy to offer an annual Youth Retreat usually held in the winter months. Offered to our 15 to 21-year-old camp participants, the Youth Retreat is a fun, relaxing 3-day, 2-night event that focuses on giving campers time to connect with one another through outdoor recreation and social time. There is group transportation available from the Lower Mainland. 

The 2025 Youth Retreat will be held a the stunning Rockridge Canyon just outside of Princeton BC in the winter. Information regarding dates and registration will be available in the late fall.

 

Youth Council

The Camp Goodtimes Youth Council is a program offered to camp youth who are 15 to 18 years old. Meeting once a month from October to June, the Youth Council volunteers at local charities, works to give back to the camp community and helps brainstorm ideas for how to improve youth-centered summer camp programming. Youth council gives members a chance to stay connected to their camp peers throughout the year and develop real-world skills.
