BC Newcomer Camp is a registered charity (Registration Number: 765780499RR0001) that relies on donations to fund its operations. 

Without your help and contributions, we are unable to teach recently arrived refugee children how to speak English and play popular sports and games - the skills they need to make friends in their new home.

Please support us by donating whatever you can, even a small contribution can go a long way!

With the arrival of so many Syrian refugee children to the Vancouver area, we see that there is a need for pre-teen programming. Many of these children have never had any formal schooling. The East Vancouver Newcomer Camp helps them get prepared to enter school this fall by providing a structured and organized educational environment.

Jocelyne Hamel, Executive Director

Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House

Programmed by volunteers with strong backgrounds in athletics, and numerous Arabic speakers, the East Vancouver Newcomer Camp a fun and engaging way for refugees to learn English and sports in a supportive, nurturing environment.
