Our Mission Statement

To create an experience that is fun, safe and educational for people of all ages and abilities. To provide an affordable place where our guests feel comfortable, are fed well and leave enriched from their experiences in the outdoors. To inspire greater group/family unity through: exploring primitive music and dance around campfires, dialogue and groovy outdoor activities.

Our Tipis

Our tipis are amazing! We have created a village with three 27' foot wide tipi lodges furnished with a cedar deck and fire ring. All of our tipi lodges are made with canvas and traditional Lodge Pole Pine, harvested from the interior of British Columbia. Each Tipi can sleep up to 15 persons depending on the groups’ size and how much gear is brought. This is a real camping adventure so please bring all the appropriate bedding and necessities. (Keep in mind the season you plan to camp in.) We have provided a camper’s checklist for you that is a general all season guide for what to bring. We look forward to hosting your stay and helping you forge life long travel memories.
