For nearly 30 years, our junior sport camps have helped kids build skills, gain independence, make friends, and create memories. BCWSA has an exciting line up of junior sport camps this year, including the first ever Junior Wheelchair Tennis Camp! This year, we’ve partnered with KidSport to help cover registration fees for juniors looking to attend any of our junior camps (for all campers) and provide travel subsidies (for regional campers).
