As we begin 2018 the White Rock Elks believe that Charity begins at home. This means that we try to make a difference in our local community with charitable donations.
White Rock Youth Ambassador
Every year the White Rock Elks sponsor a candidate. To participate, candidates must, attend school, live or work in South Surrey or White Rock. This program gets youth involved in their community and also provides a lifetime of experience. If you would like to know more about this program please visit wrya.ca.
BC Elks Camps.
There are 3 camps that we support:
Camp Elkcanoe on the shores of Shushap Lake
Camp Elkgrove in Aldergrove
Camp Elkhaven near Courtenay
The Elks Recreational Children's Camp Society was founded to provide camping facilities in the Province of British Columbia for children who might not otherwise have a camping or holiday experience.
The camps were originally designed to accommodate groups of children with special needs. But due to demand, they are now open to any organized group of children under the age of 18. Special arrangements can be made for use of Elks Camps by groups of adults with special needs.
Elks camps are available year round at no charge to user groups. All facilities are fully accessible and include dormitories, beds, mattresses, fully functioning kitchens supplied with dishes and utensils. Indoor and outdoor washrooms are both available, and each camp has space for tenting and those wishing to "rough it".
With resident caretakers on hand to assist groups, Elks Camps are the full experience and are enjoyable for all, with over 4000 children enjoying them annually.
To arrange a booking or other inquiry, please phone: 1-888-For Elks (367-3557) or go to our website at https://sites.google.com/site/bcelksassociation/information/children-s-camps/camp-elkcanoe
Youth Space White Rock
Youth in the South Surrey / White Rock area take on a lot in their day to day lives, like mental health issues, addictions, social isolation and boredom. The Youth Collective’s mission is to bring community awareness to these issues, and tackle these challenges headfirst. To do so, they have taken charge with an innovative project, called The Youth Space, working to address the needs of youth by building their strength and creativity. White Rock Elks are proud to be a supporter of Youth Space. Check out their web page
