Thanks to RE/MAX for the generous donation of a tent. This large tent saved the camp! Thanks so much.

"This Teck regional dry-land camp was anything but dry, however it didn't deter a hearty group of 40 skiers, 8 to 17 years old, from a weekend of great training and lots of fun. Activities included a double pole time trial, roller ski agility, strength and agility, forest games and runs and a mixed team event featuring puzzle building, twister, a 'nuts & bolts' relay and a 'running on skis' relay.

A huge thanks to coaches and parents and a few local businesses (ReMax Campbell River and Thrifty's Campbell River) for their support in making this camp fun and pretty dry, (all things considered) under a sea of tents and tarps."


Thumbs up to one of the few "dry" parts of the camp.
