Venue & Accommodation

Participants are welcome to stay at the Yoho Scout Reserve for no charge. There is plenty of space to set up tents on site. So, if you’d like to tent, bring your gear (Trailers are not permitted)! There are limited indoor bunk-style cabins on site. These will be available on a first come, first serve basis – so arrive early Friday evening if you’d like a bed! Note that we cannot guarantee you will not be sharing a cabin with others.

Bathrooms are located on site, as is a camp kitchen.


All participants should come prepared for a rustic weekend!
