AIR QUALITY

Sometimes it's not all blue skies and fresh air atop Burnaby Mountain! When an air quality advisory is in effect, SFU Camps is guided by the Governement of Canada's Air Quality Recommendations and will make adjustments, changes, or cancelletations to activities, facilities, and programs. As the air quality changes, so does our policy:

  • Low Risk (Air Quality Index of 1-3): This is the ideal air quality for outdoor and physical activities. All outdoor camps and activities will take place as usual.
  • Moderate Risk (Air Quality Index of 4-6): SFU Camps will closely monitor the air quality and begin to move camps participating in high-exertion physical activities indoors when possible. Outdoor activities and voluntary high-exertion physical activities will be reduced or post-poned. 
  • High Risk or Very High Risk (Air Quality of 7+): SFU Camps will do its best to move all outdoor programming indoors, beginning with camps participating in activities with the most physical exertion and including field trips. Please note that a change in field trip venue may occur.

Should your child's camp be affected by air quality, we will do our best to inform you of changes to facilities, activities, or field trips. If your child has asthma, a respiratory or other medical condition that may affect their health and well-being while at camp, please inform our staff.
