Overview

Camp Bow-Isle is located on more than 200 forested acres in the center of beautiful Bowen Island, just a short ferry ride from Vancouver, British Columbia. It’s a perfect place for you and your group to come together both physically and mentally.

Let the twenty-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay take you away from the bustle of your daily routine to an outdoor experience you’ll never forget. Our facilities are available for rent from September until June, accommodating groups large or small.

Our accommodations include:

Big A Lodge – A dining hall and multi-purpose building complete with a large kitchen and cozy fireplace room. The kitchen has all the pots, pans, plates, cups, and cutlery you’ll need. At the entrance to this building is a 1,400-square-foot three-level deck which doubles as an amphitheater for smaller groups.

Platform Tents – Five tents with plywood floots and walls and tarpaulin roofs. Each tent sleeps 10 people in bunk beds and adjacent to it is a traditional camp biffy. Additional sleeping space in the Big A can always be arranged.

Wash House – Located next to the Big A, the washhouse holds six showers, six sinks and three toilets.

Little A, Quiet House and Tweaks – These additional buildings provide additional space for two to six people each. They are very campy, but not quite as rustic as the tents.

Available activities include:

Ropes Course – This challenging course was constructed by Project Adventure and is acknowledged as one of the best in Western Canada. Facilitation is provided by our staff. Use of the course requires an additional fee, and restrictions apply.

Lake – Fed by a clear stream of water from Mt.Gardner, the lake is a natural focal point of many activities including swimming and canoeing.

Field – Adjacent to the lake, the playing field is a perfect place for soccer, football, frisbee, tag games, and learning activities.
