Adventureland Weekend Family Camp is a combined camping and programming experience for Scouting families. Available on weekends throughout the summer, starting July 8th, families will have great camping options in a variety of settings, including tent sites, cabins, ‘villages’ and even a full caboose train car! Families can also take part in great instructor-lead programing including, archery, star hikes, swimming, mountain biking, laser tag, outdoor education and much more. All camp amenities are open and available to families to enjoy each weekend.
Woodland Trails offered this family camping model through Adventureland in 2021 and due to its success has brought it back in 2022. It’s a great way to allow Scouting families to get out and enjoy nature while exploring some of Scouts Canada’s amazing camp properties. Families camping or visiting Woodland Trails must maintain their family bubbles at all times while on the property.
