Welcome to Wilderness
“Leave it wild” was the motto in 1966 when members of the Unitarian Church purchased land on a river delta on the eastern shores of Kootenay Lake, BC, for family camping.
Wilderness is open from July 1st to August 31st. There are no permanent structures, but lots of driftwood for creating temporary shelters for your campsite. There are both pit and composting toilets (built by volunteers!). There are communication devices for emergency.
The Northwest Wilderness Society of the Unitarian Church is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to preserving the property we have as wilderness, and a retreat for its members. We welcome Unitarians and others who seek a wilderness camp, embrace diversity and hold the earth in high regard.
