Welcome to Camp Woods

It’s a place where you can sail for hours without hitting the same current, where deer and fox linger in the pines, where canoes and campfires tell you the time of day. Here on the shores of Sylvan Lake at Camp Woods, we know how to do the true camp experience.

For nearly 100 years, Scouts have been coming to Camp Woods to further their outdoor skills and leadership, kickoff wonderful friendships and become lifelong outdoor enthusiasts. Now, through our new overnight summer camps, we are thrilled to give non-Scouts and Scouts alike the chance to experience Camp Woods.

In addition to camp favourites such as archery, star hikes and firelighting, our summer camp for kids lets you cruise Sylvan Lake on a Laser One sailboat or climb to the top of our 35-foot Aspire Challenge Tower.

Summer Camp

Owned and operated by Scouts Canada and now offering summer camp for kids aged 8-14, we love that we can now share adventures, challenge and fun with Scouts and non-Scouts alike every summer. You'll be amazed at how much they grow over these five days!

2019 Dates


This year's Camp Woods Summer Camp Programs have been cancelled, due to challenges securing staff to provide a quality adventure.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to an amazing Summer 2020 program.

We are issuing full refunds to those who have already signed up, or transferring registrations to Camp Impessa for those who wish to take advantage of that option. For those still interested in a Scouting Summer Program, please reach out to Northern Lights Council, as the council may facilitate transportation to Camp Impeesa if the interest exists.
