Vancouver Island Mountain Centre

Our first ever Mountain Centre Bat Camp. Families are invited for a sleepover adventure at the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre. Participants head out for a dusk-into-dark guided adventure in Paradise Meadows to learn all about bats. Join local biologists and storytellers to learn about the bats of Vancouver Island and try out new technology that lets us see and hear them in their natural environmental. These nocturnal flyers are fascinating animals and we’ll talk about their evolutionary journey, flying skills, eating habits, roosting and hibernating behaviours and more. Plus we’ll explore bats through myths and legends and find out why these creatures have captured the imagination of human cultures for millennia. Bat camp also includes a guided game of disc golf, dinner, breakfast, and accommodations.
