Summer is the perfect moment to discover the treasures of our francophone culture and heritage in BC. It's a great opportunity to stroll in the gorgeous landscapes we have around !

The CCAFCB, together with the Association francophone de Kamloops (AFK), the Centre culturel francophone de l'Okanagan (CCFO) and the Société francophone de Maillardville (SFM) have therefore launched the geocaching project.
The topic: "Discover your francophone-ness, your culture, your history! "
Enjoy a fun adventurous time and discover the historical, cultural and natural treasures of these 3 communities.

Check on all the activities taking place during the summer 2016 and beyond - as the geoacaching trails created are there to stay in each community for years to come!

This project is funded in part by the government of Canada.

Okanagan trail


The CCFO jumped two feet in the geocaching adventure !

The association launched the project during the St-Jean Baptiste celebrations and other major events ( Canada Day, the Block Party of July 23rd).
Who was Auguste Guillard? How many spots will you find in a day? Join the adventure and discover the richness of the region in your own language ... or in French !


July 20th is another date !! The CCFO - in association with Festivals Kelowna is organising a great artistic evening! Francophone artists will animate the tour|
Temporary caches will be added to the tour in the city centre, to bring you to the music party. A cache will bring you to the other, promoting arts and culture in the Okanagan.

And for the younger adventurers, summer camps will bring you thrilling times on the trails !!
