Site info and Team List

Wendy Gwynafel Kennedy·

Site Fee: $20 with discount of $5 for Members

Class Fees: $4/head and sign up for whatever classes you like. (Pre Reg will be posted closer to the event and will be announced)

Location: Camp Calliet There is potable water and some electricity hook up. Excellent sites for classes, and a big field for fighting.

The Bunkhouse sleeps 16 people, only two couples beds, the rest are singles. There are 6 outhouses, and two access ways into the camp, one at the main entrance and one on the other side of the creek.

Parking is limited and depending on how many attend we may have to have folks park at their sites, which limits how many can camp, but with 63 people attending last year, we had no troubles. We can assess as we see how many intend to be there. In many cases, those that lived in Nanaimo did not camp as they were very close by, and the Bunk house made it easier still.

This is a Scout camp so dogs were allowed but we had to be diligent about picking up after them. The creek is off limits.
