I just heard from Keith Wiley, Board Secretary of the Unitarian Wilderness Camp. Keith says:
We are promoting our wilderness camp as widely as possible to fellow Unitarians who might Love camping in a beautiful natural setting.
We are asking you to LINK TO OUR WEBSITE. https://kootenaywildernesscamping.org
We can also provide leaflets and slideshows and possible speakers to promote.

Thanks very much for your kind support.

Wonderful wilderness camping on Kootenay Lake in southern British Columbia. Tenting, hiking, paddling, wilderness! No cars, no plumbing, self-sufficient!
From July 1 to August 31 the camp director and camp boat provide fast motorized access to pristine camping. With dozens of possible camping sites along the beach, campers can be as alone, or as social, as they like. Hiking, swimming, fishing, and paddling the camp canoes are some of the usual activities. There are also frequent fireside sing-alongs, occasional potluck dinners, many kids and families, and NO motor vehicles, motorized watercraft or loud canned music.
Wilderness Camp was begun in the 1960s by a small group of Unitarians as an undeveloped camp and retreat. The affiliation with the Unitarian Church continues and many Unitarians camp here, but there is no religious affiliation necessary for campers. All are welcome.
Kootenay Lake is in southern BC, about 8-10 hours from Vancouver or Seattle or Calgary, and about 4 hours from
Spokane. Full directions here:
