Located just 15 minutes from beautiful downtown Kelowna (5325 Lakeshore Road), Camp Dunlop is nestled in the Lebanon Creek valley where the valley meets Lake Okanagan, and provides the feeling of being in the wilderness even though you are very close to the City.
Camp Dunlop is situated on 30 acres, with hiking trails in the surrounding areas that provide spectacular views of Okanagan Lake. The camp has it’s own private beach on Okanagan Lake with a wharf and floating dock. There is a public boat launch nearby for those who wish to bring power boats. Camp Dunlop is ideal for day camps, overnight camps, year-end celebrations, nature studies, environmental studies, compass work/orienteering, camping/survival skills, hiking, water activities – swimming, canoeing, kayaking, leadership/teamwork workshops, and wilderness first aid.
The camp consists of the “Charlie Colk Lodge,” which includes a full kitchen, washroom facilities, and a large hall with tables and chairs for up to 100 people. Two bunkhouses sleep 24 in each. The Camp can accommodate approximately 250 people (includes bunkhouses and user provided tents). Additional portable toilets will be required on a scale of approximately 5 per 100 people.
A large fire pit is available which will seat up to 250 people. Across Lebanon Creek there is a large tenting area known as ‘Cubland’ with smaller fire pits and a kitchen shelter. Adjacent to Cubland and just across a short bridge is a “spiffy biffy” and water tap. The ‘Black Bear’ and “Bobcat” campsites are located near the “high ropes” portion of the challenge course, and are a little more rustic with a campfire ring, tent sites, picnic tables, a water tap, and another “spiffy biffy.” There are canoes for rent. There is a an outdoor chapel for “reflective moments”.
Parking is not permitted within the fenced area. The parking area will accommodate approximately 30 cars. Larger groups will have to rely on car or bus shuttling.
