The Amazing Arts camps are sponsored by Camp Olave which is supported by West Coast Area and Lions Area. It grew out of a wonderful camp called CARNIVAL and a great adventure called HARRY POTTER CAMP.

Then Camp Olave welcomed girls and Guiders from all over BC and beyond to Amazing Arts 2008 followed by Amazing Arts Again in 2012 and Amazing Arts Three in 2015.

In 2008 our shirts were blue, in 2012 green, in 2015 red and in 2018 ORANGE.

  • I am a Guider who would like to come but I don't have a Patrol.

    Most of our girls do not come with a Guider and we rely on core staff Guiders to be Patrol Guiders for them, to assist with program, on site chores etc. You can still present a program session if you want to.

  • What about Safe Guide and other forms?

    After April 30 we will put up any remaining Safe Guide forms and ask parents to fill out and email or mail a variety of stuff such as required Safe Guide forms, a tee shirt size form, and a transportion form.

  • My camper doesn't have a swim test. Will this be a problem?

    No, our Lifeguards will administer a short test the first swimming day. It only takes a few minutes. If she has a test in iMIS we will have it already on a report.

In 2008 we went to Gibsons and a visit to the museum. Our special guest brought enough drums for all of us and we were very good! Our Pathfinders painted some of Camp Olave's paddles and we made an wonderful mural still on the porch at IODE! We always have a talent show, a Beach Party, an special outtrip, culinary arts and some kareoke.
