"My 11 year old is super picky, it's really hard to find activities/camps she really enjoys and she LOVED the Summer Camp at Western. The staff is not just super knowledgeable and caring but they are masters at tailoring activities & times according to the group's needs & preferences. I wish every kid on the Island could experience at least one of WEA's camps."

-Nancy Anaya

Victoria Bike Camps - Where, When & What

Our Mountain Bike Day Camp runs primarily out of the Harbourview Road parking lot that access the Sea-to-Sea Regional Park. We also operate out of several other Sooke area locations. Drop-off and pick-up Mon-Thurs is at 09:15 and 15:15 at the end of Harbourview Road. On non-biking days we will be transporting kids to and from Harbourview Rd. via our bus or van so picku-up and drop-off for Sooke families will not change. Please note, on Fridays, drop-off is at Harbourview Road at 09:15 and pick-up is at the Sooke Esso Station (next to the Sooke Ocean Side Brewery) at 16:30.

    "I am an 11 year old girl who attended camp last summer. I learned how to start a fire with just a match and what I could find on the forest floor, I improved my archery skills and I experienced canoeing for the first time. We helped cook and set up shelter. Landon was very funny and nice. He made me feel welcome. It was super duper fun."
