Skydiving For Kids


In support of the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation and their quest to send every kid home with a teddy bear, we will donate a teddy bear for every tandem skydive in the month of October. 

"When children come to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital for medical care, the goal is to give as many as possible a stuffed toy to help comfort and distract them. The demand for these toys is high though and our inventory of Teddy Bears is running out. Please consider donating a new stuffed toy to the Hospital Foundation so that we can continue to provide these simple, but comforting items to our young patients. Due to infection control, only new stuffed toys, preferably with tags attached, can be accepted." - Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation


A Tandem Skydive is only $295 per person every day in the month of October or you can purchase the Ultimate Skydive Experience of a Tandem Skydive and our ProCam Outside Video and Picture Package for $420 per person giving you a $50 savings!

For those of you who can't skydive in October, who would rather keep your feet firmly on the ground, or who just want to help out this great cause there are other ways to donate!

  • If you would like to purchase your own bear we will accept donations at The Qualicum Toy Shop at 211 W 2nd Ave #5, Downtown Qualicum Beach. They have a great selection of teddy bears you can purchase there as well. When you drop off your donation, you will receive a $25 gift card to go towards a skydive or any of our cool swag here at Skydive Vancouver Island!

  • You can donate directly to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation office 8:00 am and 4:00 pm Monday to Friday. You can also donate online at
