This year there will be two camps, the Assiniboine Hut Camp, in Assiniboine Provincial Park, and the Lone Goat Heli fly-in tent camp in the Coast Mountains.
Assiniboine Hut Camp
This camp will be held August 20-27, for a maximum of 16 people. Due to early notice, the camp is already fully subscribed but a wait-list is being taken. Please contact Jeff Beddoes at jeff.beddoes@LTSA.ca to be put on the wait-list.
Lone Goat Tent Camp
A magnificent wilderness area offering peak objectives, scrambling, and ridge-top hiking is proposed for this year’s tent camp. Our base camp coordinates will be approximately: 50°42’46.03″N; 123° 4’25.90″W. Check it out on Google Earth!
Three weeks of camp are proposed dependent on registration. Each week runs from Sunday to Sunday: Week 1: July 16-23; Week 2: July 23-30; Week 3: July 30-August 6.
Cost will be $600 pp, estimated to cover the cost of the helicopter along with necessary consumables. As per ACC-VI policy, a refund will be given if final expenses are less than revenue.
Please see the Summer Camp General Information Guide 2017 and the Guidance for Lone Goat Summer Camp Participants 2017, which we hope will answer many of your preliminary questions. Please be sure to read these documents carefully before filling in your registration form. Your understanding and agreement with these policies is a pre-requisite of registration. Travel, and all other details will be provided at a later date.
Please read all the information and print out the Registration Form and mail with your cheque for $600 to: Peggy Taylor.
A Call for Camp Managers and Assistant Camp Managers:
Each week of the summer camp requires a Camp Manager and possibly an Assistant Camp Manager. If you have an interest in building your leadership skills and working with the Camp participants to ensure a successful experience for all, please read the Camp Managers’ Duties document on the ACCVI website, and contact Liz Williams at email@example.com if interested.
