My name is Ava and I am 11 years old. I was born and raised in Kyuquot but now I live in West Vancouver.  My favorite time of the year is right when summer starts. Usually kids are excited for summer because they’re going off to Hawaii or just hanging out with friends at home, but not me. I have an out-of-the-ordinary summer with tubing, fishing, working, and a lot more of my favorite things.

When I explain Kyuquot to my friends, I could talk for hours and hours about how much I love it –  no one loves Kyuquot as much as I love it! When I think of Kyuquot I think of my dad sitting at the front of the boat snuggling my dog and me driving in the sunset or my sister and I hiking out to flat rocks to have a picnic for the day or my mom and I baking fresh apple pie from fruit that we picked from the tree in our yard.

Try to imagine all of your favorite people in the world all in the same room laughing and smiling and do the most fun things ever –  that is what Kyuquot is for me. Time with family and people I love. I love the staff, the neighbours… Kyuquot is the only place that me and my sister don’t fight twenty four seven, I love that after a stressful day of work my dad and I go sit on the dock and talk about it. And then start all over again the next day. 

Come and see for yourself!
