Youth & Kids Programs

Youth and children's programs are available for kids from preschool to grade 12. Each program is available for a single day, or for the full weekend. You can view pricing for each program here.

We no longer offer a supervised nursery program, but there will be a nursery room available for parents to use. If a program option does not show up on the registration form, it is full. Please contact Michelle Kapelle to be placed on a waiting list.

CHEC does not have Special Education assistants for these programs. Children with special needs or behavioral issues will be required to have an adult/older sibling attend with them.


A very special thank you to the HCOS PAC for sponsoring the T-Shirts this year! We sincerely appreciate your most generous contribution to the success of BC CHEC 2019!
