This Year at Fun Rec!

The Fun Rec adventure begins July 4th, 2017, and runs for 6 consecutive weeks until August 11th. Camp headquarters is based out of Stoney Creek Community School from 9am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday. During camp we have use of the class rooms, the Community Room, the gymnasium, a kitchen and the surrounding fields and playgrounds. During the week we run organized activities with small outings to places around the community. Each week has a different theme, to which many of our activities and crafts are built around. We conclude each week with a camp wide themed Special Event and full camp field trip!

A Brief History of Fun Rec

Fun Rec is a summer recreation program that has been offered to the children of this community since 1982. The Northeast Burnaby Community Association (NEBCA) has kept the cost of registration well below the cost of running this fun packed program so that everyone in our community has the chance to attend summer camp.

At Fun Rec, we aim to help develop social and physical skills in a fun and safe environment. Activities include but are not limited to sports, crafts, music, cooking, and drama. Children who attend must be between the ages 5 (having completed kindergarten) and 13 (having completed grade 7) years of age.
