Virtual Camps (Online) – It’s virtually unbelievable!
Deaf Youth Today (DYT) is now offering Virtual Camps to keep your children entertained and engaged in fun AND learning while they're at home.
We are currently facing a strange new reality where we're practicing social distancing and living in isolation to stop the spread of COVID-19. What this means is that we're now doing something a bit different. DYT will be hosting a #dytathome virtual camp using the ZOOM platform. It's a great way to connect with kids anywhere in BC.
#dytathome is an experience your kids will love while they are stuck at home! Camps may include games, competitions, learning new skills, Yoga, Crossfit, Game Groups, Art, Baking or Sports. These sessions will keep your child busy and engaged. We tested these camps recently, and we had RAVE reviews and everyone wants more!

DYT Camp-in-a-Box is an online way to bring summer day camp to you! Our goal is to keep kids connected to friends, maintaining social interaction and language enrichment that is vital to the development, and most importantly… having a fun summer!

Outdoor Day Camps (In Person) – Fingers Crossed!
YEAH!!! Finally, we get to meet face to face (fingers crossed). Campers can choose any or all of our 5 DYT DAY Camp options. DYT will focus on day camps taking place in outdoor areas and parks with regular handwashing and individualized supplies and equipment for all participants. These DYT camps have been designed to ensure physical distancing and meeting all health requirements while allowing participants to safely enjoy some of DYT’s most popular programs. In keeping with health safety, camps will be limited to 8 participants. We promise they will be lots of fun!

DYT - SAFETY
DYT is working on a safety plan for all our staff and our day camps (outdoor activities) while following guidelines from municipalities, WorkSafeBC, the Provincial Health Officer, and other recreation organizations.
We will be limiting the number of registrations in compliance with the Provincial Health Officer’s recommendations. DYT will post all our safety precautions on our website so you can be confident in our safety procedures. DYT will scale back or modify plans as required to protect public health.
