Camp Caillet is one of the largest Scout Camps on Vancouver Island. We have the following facilities available for groups staying on site:
The camp kitchen is a fully-fitted professional kitchen with floor to ceiling refridgerators, a large gas range and hotplate with extraction and fire suppresant system, two double sinks, microwave, warming table and plenty of food preparation and counter space. The kitchen has many pots, pans and trays suitable for cooking for large groups, and a selection of cooking utensils, cutlery, plates, bowls and cups. Groups are encouraged to bring their own mess kits to eat with as supplies are limited.
Covered Fire Shelter
The fire shelter was a project that was completed in 2014 and offers a large round where up to 200 youth and leaders can sit around a large fire pit. Wood supplies can be found in the wood shed behind the picnic shelter. Please bring your own axe and fire starting materials. The seating area is on four levels, and the fire shelter has a covered chimney and lighting for use in the winter months.
The bunkhouse offers heated sleeping accommodation for groups of up to 14 on raised bunks. The bunkhouse can be locked when not in use and offers a welcome option for groups wanting winter camping accommodation in the mid Island area.
Camp Caillet has a heated cabin that can be used for meetings, work areas and as a warm shelter in winter months. The Cabin has heating, places to hang coats, chalkboard, large work tables, benches and chairs. The cabin is available for all groups renting Camp Caillet. Please - no cooking in the cabin.
The Picnic Shelter offers a large seating area with picnic benches for up to 80 youth. With extractable side panels, the picnic shelter can be used all year round. The Picnic Shelter has lights and a wood stove for additional comfort.
Camp Caillet is separated by a creek that runs through the centre of the grounds. On the far side of the creek are two sleeping cabins, offering raised bunks. This alternative to camping is good for bad weather camps and each cabin will sleep up to 8 youth.
Both sides of the camp have portable toilets that are accessible to groups renting the Camp. Toilets are maintained by the Camp Committe and will be clean and ready for your use on arrival. Please leave them in the same state as you find them.
To maintain the camp and ensure continued enjoyment, Camp Caillet has camp rules that all groups must abide by. To see a copy of the camp rules, please click here.
