It is time to register for CAMP! As in past years, there are limited spots and important deadlines to get all the necessary forms in.

The deadline to get forms and payment in is April 1, 2019.

Note: If you are coming from outside the Lower Mainland, please email us ASAP.

When: May 17–20 (you will have to take Friday off school)

Where: Zajac Ranch, Mission, BC

Who: Heart teens aged 13–19 years

Steps to apply for camp:

  1. Email Kristi at and tell us that you want to come.
  1. Visit Zajac Ranch Online Camper Registration to register online and to print medical forms that need to be completed by your doctor.

Get started on them ASAP, as there is a lot to do, and the sooner you get them in the better!

  1. CHN will cover the cost for you to go to camp; however, we do require a $75 deposit to help contribute to the cost as well as to secure your spot.

This does not get sent to Zajac Ranch. It should be sent to the following address:

Vancouver Island youths:

You will meet at Swartz Bay and travel on the ferry, and then we will be organizing a bus to pick you up from the Tsawwassen ferry terminal. It will also pick you up from Zajac Ranch and drive you back to the ferry for the trip home.

Currently we are planning to have you catch the 11 am ferry on May 17, so you will arrive in Tsawwassen at 12:35 pm, and we would then arrive at Zajac around 3 pm.

Other out-of-town youths:

If you are interested in coming to camp, please let us know ASAP, so we can look into whether we can help with cover the cost of transportation.
