GIRLS Camp

Girls Camp offers girls an opportunity to thrive learning about God and themselves in a supportive, active, and joyful environment. We play games, develop skills, have meaningful conversations, and encourage each other to challenge ourselves to be the best versions of ourselves.

At Camp Bow-Isle, most of the activities we do are “family style”. Meaning that the whole camp, including the camp director and the Christian Science Practitioner, are present at the majority of the activities.

Each youth session lasts two weeks and includes a variety of camp activities, delicious meals, camp duties, Sunday School, Bible Lesson study and more! It’s the best two weeks of the year. Don’t miss it!

Junior Girls

Ages 8 - 13

Dates and Rates

Junior Girls is a fun-filled session for campers who want to do a little bit of everything in a spiritually uplifting atmosphere. Junior campers go hiking, swimming, rock climbing, canoeing, and take a one-night outtrip on Bowen Island. They learn to tie knots to set up a tarp, eat food cooked over a camp stove, do archery, jump on a trampoline, do crafts, sing camp songs, and play well-loved games like “Pirates and Cargo” and “Three Sticks.”

Each day, Junior Girls study the Christian Science Bible Lesson, join in Wednesday night testimony meetings, and a Sunday School class at Camp.

Senior Girls

Ages 13 - 17

Dates and Rates

In addition to the many activities that Juniors do, Senior campers have the opportunity to take each skill a step further. Throughout the two weeks, senior girls do the ropes course, go rock climbing, learn basic sailing skills, go kayaking, swim, hike, and play camp-wide games. While these activities quickly bring in the fun, our focus is always in helping campers grow – spiritually, mentally and physically. Senior campers learn responsibility and leadership skills based on spiritual values, creativity and teamwork.

During this two-week program, Senior campers take an out-trip to a beautiful destination in our backyard of Howe Sound—the trip often includes hiking, a boating adventure, mountain biking, surfing, horseback riding, ziplining, or some other exciting multi-day trip off island.

Each morning, Senior campers study the Christian Science Bible Lesson, and join the rest of camp in midweek testimony meetings and Sunday School at Camp.

Senior Girls Skills

(Mountain Biking)

Ages 13 - 17

Dates and Rates

Join a fun group of senior girls for a week of mountain biking, spiritual discovery, and outdoor adventure. A couple of days will be spent at camp preparing for the biking trip to Squamish where riders across the world travel to bike Squamish trails. All levels of experience are welcome.

Senior Skills Campers are encouraged to stay for the regular two-week Senior session, particularly if they’re new to camp. From year to year, the skill(s) of the summer vary depending on the interest of the participants and the availability of staff members who are highly proficient in their fields of expertise.

Squamish, BC lays claim to one of the best singletrack trail networks in North America and the world. We hope you’ll join us this Summer to ride classics like Half Nelson and Sueda Suega, hang out with some great people, and learn a lot about Christian Science and yourself. No prior experience is required, but some familiarity with mountain biking is highly recommended.
