Hello friends,
We have some mixed, but inevitable news to share today.
As COVID-19 restrictions continue to limit our ability to host and gather well, Young Life of Canada has made the difficult decision to move away from a national camping strategy and instead Young Life areas will be hosting regional, creative, fun and adventurous camping alternatives similar to 2020.

RockRidge Canyon will not host traditional Young Life camps this summer,  instead we will host weekend Family Retreats throughout July and August.

What does that mean for Young Life Family Camp 2021?

  • Rather than hosting a single Family Camp week, we will be running a series of seven Family Retreats at RockRidge Canyon. This means you’ll have the flexibility to find the perfect vacation time that works for your family and friends.
  • The Family Retreat weekend model was very successful last summer and allows us to follow all of the necessary COVID-19 protocols and cleaning designed to keep guests and staff healthy.
  • We’re hoping to add Young Life “flavour” to your stay, with protocol friendly activities based on the BC provincial health guidelines.

Family Vacation Destination

You’ve told us that enjoying the outdoors, premium accommodations, plus great food and fun make for special family memories and a real summer vacation. With that in mind we’re looking forward to hosting your family again at RockRidge Canyon this summer!

Summer time is prime time

Summer is prime time at RockRidge Canyon. The days are extended to include more fun and the wide blue sky is consistently filled with puffy white clouds. In the summer, RockRidge Canyon comes alive with activities on the lake, in the pool, amongst the trees and inside where it’s cool.

Soar above the lake on the the famous zip line. Cast a line from the shores of Canoe Cove. Explore the property at your own pace on a Trek mountain bike. Relax in the pool or sink your toes in beach sand then try wake boarding for the first time. There is so much to do but this week it’s up to you.  

RockRidge Canyon sets the standard high when it comes to activities, food, accommodation and fun so you can rest assured this will be a true holiday – A summer break to remember.

Everyone is invited
