Narnia Through the Years


Presenting Narnia Through the Years! There were so many pictures to choose from thanks to one of our founders, Anton Voorhoeve, who over the years captured so well the spirit of Camp through his lens. Thank you Toon! I hope you all enjoy the trip down memory lane, looking to the past as we head off into the future. What a journey and so many people who have been a part of Camp Narnia!

Notes from the Wardrobe

Our first registrations have come in! Congratulations to Holly, the first camper registered for the much-anticipated re-opening of Camp Narnia! We are so excited and are looking forward to many more.

On another note, our Program Director, Sam Clinock, and myself just returned from the BC Camping Association's annual Camping Conference. I hadn't attended in 5 years and it was great to see both new and familiar faces and to see what has been happening in the BCCA and what plans lie ahead. The BCCA is an organization that promotes summer camps in BC and also provides the framework for the camp accreditation process. We are proud to be a member of both the BCCA and the CCA (Canadian Camping Association). As a result of attending we have set up a Camp Narnia Facebook page where we will be posting updates, articles of interests, etc... and where we invite you to keep in touch and see what's happening with Camp Narnia as we grow. We will be putting up a link to the Facebook page as we update our website but for now you can find us at

or by searching Camp Narnia once you're on Facebook.

See you in Narnia!

Your Camp Director,
Agnes

And we're off!



The response to the announcement of Camp Narnia's re-opening has been wonderful and I have enjoyed hearing all your camp memories! We are so excited to be planning Camp and look forward to an unforgettable summer.

We have an exciting announcement! Due to the overwhelming response we have decide to add Teen Camp sessions (ages 13-15) during the 3 August camps. Spaces will be limited so sign up soon! I will be uploading an up-dated registration form soon but for now simply please indicate your interest in Teen Camp on the form. We look forward to many familiar faces and to new campers as well -bring a friend!

We will also be running our Leaders In Progress program for 16-17 year olds. This is an excellent opportunity to help out with activities and Camp operations as well as to develop valuable leadership skills. If you enjoy working with children and are thinking about becoming a Camp Narnia counsellor in the future then this is the program for you! The cost is $175 which covers board as well Leadership Training. If you are interested in this please email me at campnarnia@gmail.com and let me know. I will be sending out application forms early March. Space is limited to 4 LIPs per session. We hope to see you at Narnia this summer!



We continue to work on our website and hope to have it up and running soon. For now if you need more information please email me at campnarnia@gmail.com.

Aslan is on the move! The adventure awaits!

Your Camp Director,
Agnes Bartle
