The facilities are located on 2.5 acres of fenced property, half a block from the ocean. On the grounds you will find picnic tables, a large brick barbecue, a volleyball net and a gas campfire. There is a one acre park with an Adventure Playground across Sullivan Street.
Please be aware that there is no bedding available. There are foam mattresses on the beds in the sleeping areas but you will need to bring your own blankets and pillows. For extra comfort you may wish to bring your own camping mattress.
The main buildings all contain washrooms with showers as well as sleeping quarters.
There is no parking available on the camp grounds, but ample parking is available on Sullivan and McBride.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
