Connecting Cultures

Multicultural Day Camps

Watch this space for details of our 2024 camps... 

A fun, healthy, and engaging exploration of other cultures 

Our Philosophy

Whistler Multicultural Society (WMS) aims to bring cultures together for positive intercultural interactions. WMS programs build cross-cultural connections, develop awareness and understanding of our local diversity, and seek to grow equity and inclusion. We believe that by experiencing aspects of different cultures in a fun and supportive environment, children will gain a different perspective which will help them develop a life-long curiosity and interest in valuing and promoting diversity and inclusion.  

Our goal for the Multicultural Day Camps is to introduce children to local cultures represented in Whistler in a fun, safe, and enquiring environment. Each Day Camp is led by local immigrants who customize each day's activities with their own cultural heritage: their language, food, games, crafts, music, song, and dance.
