Evans Lake Camp Programs
Evans Lake is remote, yet accessible, unspoiled, pristine, mountain co-ed summer camp for kids and youth ages 8-16. Our fun and educational Summer and Winter Camp programs balance opportunities for learning with ample time for play and adventure! A core belief of Evans Lake, is that you leave our camp with a deeper knowledge and admiration of the forest and the environment that surrounds us. One of the best ways to learn, however, is by having fun and getting your hands dirty. Daily programming is held in the forest and includes stream rehabilitation, shelter building, erosion reduction, animal conservation, and general forest management.
Sessions are specially designed with ages, skill level and interests of the campers in mind. Most sessions include an overnight hike to a mountain lake or another local and memorable destination. All camp sessions are co-ed.
Each summer we offer a wide variety of sessions:
* 6 day/5 night Camps for 8-12 years
* 7 day/ 6 night Camp for 10-14 years
* 7 day/ 6 night Camps for 13 –16 years
* 7 day/ 6 night Camp for 13-16 years
* 7 day/ 6 night Outdoor Adventure Kamp for 13 -16 years
* 6 day/5 night Leadership Training for 14-16 years
* Volunteer Opportunities (Work Crew)

As soon as you arrive to the bus stop for the start of camp, you will be welcomed by outgoing and friendly staff ready to kick off a week of excitement. Each morning is kicked off by a creative wakeup call and the activities start immediately. There are games (some never played outside of Evans Lake), theme lunches, and activities such as canoeing, swimming and archery, with a different variety during the winter. To top it all off, each night is finished off with campfire songs and stories. Allow our knowledgeable staff to help ignite your passionfor the great outdoors. It’s hard not to leave Evans Lake with a smile from ear to ear and a desire to return as soon as possible. Other than a few simple basics, all you really need to bring is a open mind and a sense of discovery!
‘An Experience Like No Other’ -Evans Lake Winter Camp
For those of you who haven’t been before, Evans Lake Winter Camp is an awesome opportunity to re-connect with friends from the summer and also meet new ones. While the overall format of the camp is very similar to summer camp, there is a whole bunch of new activities to explore. Evans Lake’s Winter Camp Activities include (depending on weather) sledding, building enormous snow creatures and snowshoeing. This program is an all ages camp for kids aged 8-16. All the cabins and buildings are fully winterized with heating and insulation. If the lake is not frozen, we will even do a Polar Bear Swim. Don’t worry, we have the fire burning in the rec. hall to warm them up after!
