Camping Bureau

The Burnaby Camping Bureau provides subsidies for Burnaby children from low income households to attend a week of summer day camp. Our subsidies of $100 (maximum) will allow children the opportunity to attend a local camp that their families would otherwise be unable to afford.

To qualify, you must be a resident of Burnaby, have children ages of 5-15 yrs, be of low income and have supporting documentation.

The following documents MUST be presented at the time of your appointment:

  1. A Notice of Assessment OR Proof of Income Statement (C-Print) for the year 2023 for BOTH parents (if married/living common law)
    • The document that is only available if requested through the Canada Revenue Agency. To order it from the CRA, call 1.800.959.8281, press * to speak with an operator or 1.800.267.6999 for automated service (only for Proof of Income Statement),
    • You can also find the document through 'My Accounts' online under MyCRA.
  2. Recent Proof of Address - copy of a rental agreement- ex: copy of home utility bill (hydro, gas, cable, internet, landline phone) or bank statement of your saving or cheque account) dated within 2 months of the application.                                                                   
  3. ONE of the child's IDs: BC Services Card, Care Card, PR card, Passport, or Birth Certificate.

*Newcomer to Canada without income proof can request a referral letter from their child's school, settlement, or outreach worker as proof of need.

Parents MUST know which local day camp they are sending their child to when they arrive for their appointment, as well as have all the required documentation. Please have several choices of camp programs and dates, as camps fill up their spaces quickly. We will not be able to help you if you don't have a chosen camp or missing information.

To book an appointment or for more information, please call at 604.299.5778.

Appointments take place at Burnaby Community Services or BNH Brentwood House, 2055 Rosser Ave, Burnaby.
