Camp ready for 2017 season

John and Suzi return for 2017


Camp Opening July 1

Camp is open under 30 degree blue skies… and wonderful conditions. Suzi and John are on site and boat is running from Schroeder Creek resort.

Weather forecast:

Last summer was a bit cooler and rainier than usual so here’s the best forecast for summer 2017:

  • 30 Degree days with sunshine starting June 29th.  (That’s 86 degrees F. for those of you who read it that way)
  • No rain during the days, but each week there will be a roaring thunder storm on one evening that will dump a nice rainfall over the region.  This will keep the fire risk down and no campfire ban is forecast for the entire summer… just like last year.
  • Between the hours of 2-3 pm each day there will be some cloud, allowing a cooling off, siesta period for mid-afternoon. Following will be more hot sunshine until 9 pm, followed by a dark sky with lots of northern lights.

That’s a tad utopian as a forecast, but summer weather on Kootenay Lake usually has many hot sunny days, regular spectacular thundershowers, and beautiful dark evenings.

New Slideshow from Board Member Scott Tuton.  
Scott has created a slide show that has beautiful images and information that is particularly useful for people in the U.S. who want to visit camp.  It’s a great way to show and tell about the joys of Camp.  You can see it here: SCOTT’S SLIDESHOW
