Be A Kid
Because Every Child Deserves to
and explore the wonder of the world in a joyfully inquisitive way.
Every child deserves the opportunity to try something new, connect with community, and do so without the judgmental and scrutinizing gaze of the people around them. Unfortunately, for Black, Indigenous and Children of Colour, they often don't get these opportunities.
BIPOC Kids often face barriers when it comes to… being a kid. Barriers to participating in activities like finances, travel, time, lack of knowledge, stigma, fear for safety, and even just feeling like they’re going to stick out or be the only racialized kid there.
About the Program
Thanks to funding from the Victoria Foundation Community Grants Program, each month we invite BIPOC Kids, and their immediate support system, to join us for a new activity.
For children who identify as BIPOC and/or have racialized ancestry.
White passing kiddos and white support system individuals are welcome.
Currently open to residents in the Greater Victoria and surrounding areas.
Free to participate. Donations welcome when financially possible.
We are currently booking some super fun activities for the upcoming months. We are looking into opportunities like rock climbing, pottery, horseback riding, theatre, and much more. Below is what we currently to offer:
April 2023 - Victoria Bug Zoo
May 2023 - WildPlay Victoria
June 2023 - Tie-Dye Fun
July 2023 - Make a Splash at Beckwith Park
September 2023 - 2 Nights at Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre, Hornby Island

If you or the BIPOC kiddo in your life has a specific activity they would like to do surrounded in the safety of an affinity group, please email us to let us know.
