Tri-Cities Summer Camps: Something for Everyone


“I left, I left, I had a good home and I left.” Summer Camps for All! I remember rhythmically chanting those words as our group marched into the woods to find our wooden cabin that would be our “home” for three days.

The future of the Riverview Lands is an ongoing topic of conversation for those of us who live in the Tri-Cities. How do we best utilize this space to serve the needs of the community?

Tri-Cities Parks: Belcarra Regional Park has Crab Fishing, Fun + More!


Pier Belcarra Regional Park

Crab Fishing I never thought raw chicken would be involved in crab fishing. A couple months after moving to the Tri-Cities from the Alberta prairies, I was asked if I had gone crab fishing yet.  Crab fishing?  Didn’t I need a Forrest Gump-type fishing boat and the rough waves of an open ocean?  I soon […]
