John and Suzi return AGAIN (hooray!) for 2018
Camp Opening July 1
Camp will be opening July 1 as always. John will be running the boat from Schroeder Creek resort. Use the Walkie Talkie in the BOX on the side of the BIFFIE in the Parking Lot to call John in Camp. (photos of said walkieboxandbiffie, coming)
Tell your friends
Intensive research has uncovered the main way new people discover camp: word-of-mouth from people who have camped and loved the experience. Attendance has been slowing with generational change and now there is a need to renew and bring new folks into the community.
Renewing Camp Culture
As generations come and go, camp culture faces the need for renewal, for younger hands and families. Become an Ambassador to help new generations discover the deep joy of wilderness.
This website is your first and easiest resource to tell people about. How to get here! What to Bring! Even the video with some scenic vistas.
The Facebook page helps highlight how we are a supportive community of campers.
Always good to point out: Facebook: Friends of Kootenay Lake Wilderness Camp.
Real paper folding brochures are ALSO available. If you would like to give copies to potential campers or interested organizations, please send us an email with a mailing address, and how many you would like and we’ll ship them to you.
Link Camp UP!
Probably the best promotion you could possibly do for camp would be to get your local organization to link to this website. Download linking materials you can use on your website in this ZIP File. LINKinWildernessCamp:

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
