Camp Gilwell is located in the Comox Valley along the banks of the Brown’s River, close to Strathcona Provincial Park and Mount Washington Ski Resort. The area features snowboarding, downhill, and cross-country ski runs in winter, and hiking and mountain bike trails in the summer.
The camp has three cabins with electrical heating with bunk beds, no mats provided. The camp has a covered picnic shelter with a new fireplace for warmth on those damp days. There are three double outhouses, a single outhouse and a wash house with three indoor flush toilets. There is a limited shower facility with a small hot water tank. The camp has a good size sports field, campfire pits, and lots of tenting sites. The campsites were developed and are maintained by the local scouting groups, we ask that everyone respect the efforts of so many and try to keep things clean and safe for fellow campers.
Here are some helpful links to scout out:

Imagine snow-capped mountain vistas, the salt tang of ocean air and the cool stillness of a West Coast rainforest. Picture charming islands to explore, fish waiting to be caught, mountains to ski and rivers to paddle. See yourself browsing through shops full of unique, hand-made art, crafts and furniture, laughing yourself silly at comedy sports or experiencing the burst of genuine flavor that is served with food fresh from the farm and ocean. All of this and more is waiting for you in the Comox Valley!
