Camp Barnard in the Woods

Camp Barnard located in Otter Point, just west of Sooke on Vancouver Island, is a 250 acre camp used year round by a variety of youth and adult organizations to deliver their programs. Short and long-term residential camping, wilderness camping, and day use opportunities are available in a safe yet challenging environment, at very reasonable rates. Camp Barnard has been providing a nurturing environment for people to learn new skills and experience nature and their place in it for more than 75 years. Camp Barnard provides excellent camp rental facilities for the youngest/least experienced camper to develop skills and confidence-residential camp settings, rustic cabin circles with dining hall & kitchen, and back country tenting sites for more advanced and adventurous leave-no-trace camping.
