Welcome to Silver Lake!

Summer Camp at Silver Lake Forestry Center

With the new Lodge at Silver Lake now open, campers will find an impressive building with a beautiful rock fireplace rising to the ceiling, solid fir posts soaring upward and massive glulams spanning the rooms. The warmth of wood has been well-used in this new facility and this lodge will once again be the focal point and popular gathering place of camp visitors.

Located about 45 minutes south of Kelowna, Silver Lake Forestry Center has been in operation for the past 38 years and offers quality forest education programs and outdoor experiences to young people between the ages of 7 and 16 years. The camp has five log cabins/bunkhouses accommodating 14-24 people, which can be rented out for a nominal price throughout the year when not filled with campers.

In addition to providing educational camp experiences, Silver Lake is also used by many school and community groups throughout the year for field trips and events. From canoeing, swimming, fishing and hiking to archery, orienteering, forest resource study and winter Olympics, students are exposed to a wide variety of seasonal activities in a beautiful lake setting surrounded by forest.

Summer camps run weekly from July 16- September 1 for various ages. For more information about any of the programs offered at Silver Lake, please visit the Silver Lake Forestry Centre website at: www.silverlakekidscamp.com
