The primary mission of the Bow-Isle Outdoor Centre is to foster character and community development through recreational activities and outdoor skills.


Throughout the 60 years Camp Bow-Isle has operated as a summer camp for Christian Scientists, BIOC has also welcomed local schools and community groups to learn and play in our beloved camp nestled in the woods of Nex̱wlélex̱wm (Bowen Island). This summer, we are offering four weeks of summer day camp for kids ages 7-15. Click here to learn more and save your spot for an unforgettable summer of camp activities and new friendships.

In the Spring and Fall, we welcome groups with an interest in recreational and bonding activities. With over 200 acres of trees, trails, a high ropes course, rock climbing tower, a large field, and lake, we are ready to welcome you and your community for a fun learning experience!

Our facilities are also available for rent from September until May, accommodating large and small groups. To learn more, check out our facility rentals’ page.
