BC Wheelchair Sports is excited to announce this year’s line-up of junior sports camps. As with last year, we were able to partner with KidSport to help cover some fees – KidSport will be covering registration fees only (for all campers). To access these subsidies, simply fill out the application form by contacting ana@bcwheelchairsports.com. Travel subsidies (for regional campers) will be provided separately from KidSport and can be accessed by contacting ana@bcwheelchairsports.com.

Junior Wheelchair Tennis Camp

Anyone can play wheelchair tennis, whether you are in a manual or power chair.

The camp will feature Steve Manley, BCWSA Provincial Wheelchair Tennis Coach and Paralympians Kai Schrameyer and Sarah Hunter as coaching staff. They will lead participants through a wide range of fun drills, activities, and match play.  All abilities are welcome and participants will be divided based on skill level over three courts. Siblings and friends are more than welcome to register as well!

Junior Wheelchair Multi-Sport Camp

 This multi-sport wheelchair sport camp is geared towards kids 11 and over. This year’s camp offers a variety of fun sports including wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, wheelchair athletics, and wheelchair tennis. There will also be tag games and other fun surprises! Campers will also have the chance to play alongside our Junior Leaders who have participated in these sports from a local level to the international stage.

 The last two days of the camp will be specifically a Wheelchair Basketball Camp. In addition, a nurse will be in attendance for the multi-sport sessions. 

Siblings and friends are more than welcome to register as well!

We would also like to invite parents to attend a “Chair Chit Chat” on August 10th from 1:30pm – 2:30pm at the Cloverdale Recreation Centre. We would like to take the time to meet with parents before the end of the multi-sport camp to have an informal “chit chat” session. If there is a particular topic you would like us to discuss, please send your question/topic to Ana at ana@bcwheelchairsports.com and we will make sure we discuss it during that time. If not, make sure to stop by to have some coffee, tea, snacks,  and meet the other parents before your child is done camp!
