It is with great sadness that we announce that, due to public health orders from the BC Ministry of Health, we will be suspending Camp Narnia for the 2020 season.
Pending official guidelines from the BC Ministry of Health, we will be exploring options this summer for new ways that we can engage the camp community.
In light of the ongoing pandemic, we are unsure if we will be able to run Camp Narnia in the summer of 2021. While there is much hopeful news, at the time of registration opening, a public health order remains in effect banning all residential summer camps.
In anticipation of the restrictions being lifted over the coming months, we will be taking deposits for Camp Narnia’s 2021 summer season starting January 1st.
Here is what will be different from past years:
1) We will only be accepting deposits ($100 per registration) when campers initially register. Remainder payments will be automatically charged to the same card on July 1st, once we are 100% certain that camp will be allowed to run.
2) Initially, we will be limiting registration numbers to 35 campers per week, so that total numbers on site will stay below 50 people. We will increase available spaces at a later date if regulations permit.
3) Draft COVID procedures can be downloaded below, which have been submitted to Island Health for consideration. Any changes to this COVID plan will be distributed through our email list to all families who have registered.
4) All fees are 100% refundable for any reason up to the day campers are dropped off at camp.
5) We ask that families limit registration to two consecutive weeks per camper as a maximum, to give more children the opportunity to attend camp this year.
We are very grateful to our community of campers and families for your patience and understanding. We are trying our best to make this the most ‘normal’ year we can! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
“That’s why I’m going to stand by the play world. I’m on Aslan’s side even if there isn’t any Aslan to lead it. I’m going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn’t any Narnia. ”

We run a shuttle to and from Camp Narnia for check-in and check-out from Departure Bay Ferry Terminal in Nanaimo. This is to help campers coming from the mainland to get to camp without their parents having to drive onto the ferry and pay expensive car fees.
Please note: Our staff are only able to pick up campers on the Nanaimo side of the ferry route, and parents must follow BC Ferries regulations around children riding on the ferry.
As ferry schedules frequently change, we will get in touch with families booking the ferry shuttle one week before camp by e-mail to confirm which ferry they should take to meet the shuttle.
August 1st – August 7th
August 8th – August 14th
August 15th – August 21st
August 22nd – August 28th

Our camp is committed to providing a diverse and fulfilling experience for as many families as we can, and we work hard to keep the price of sending your child to camp reasonable and accessible. We also occasionally reduce the registration cost for families in need. We are a privately owned, independent camp and we receive no support from public funds, charities, or other organisations; our ability to accommodate families in financial need is limited to only a few spaces per week of camp.
Our criteria for offering reduced rates centres around three objectives:
1) Providing returning campers the chance to continue to attend camp in spite of changes in their family’s circumstances
2) Making the camp community a diverse place where children of all backgrounds play together
3) Providing the opportunity to come to camp for children who would benefit most from the experience
If you feel that your child would benefit greatly from attending camp, but are not able to pay the full camp fees, please get in touch by email and we will be happy to discuss your individual case. Also, there are some organizations who have offered funding to families to send their children to Camp Narnia in the past, and we are happy to welcome campers who have been sponsored in this way.
