Activities from last year:


Theme for Camp Skeeter

This year’s theme for Camp Skeeter is Skeeter goes to the Old Folks Home. All of this year’s events will be geared towards our geriatric theme. You are welcome to decorate your campsite with and wear costumes based on the theme, there will be prizes and awards.


Swimming Information!!

*** Don’t forget your bathing suits! Unfortunately this year we are not able to do trips to Nanaimo Aquatic Center as there is a national swim meet in town but we have been able to secure the Kin Pool for the annual swim trip on Sunday the 19th for $5 each. The site includes: showers and swimming at the outdoor pool.

*** Please keep in mind that the logistic of trips to the pool are a nightmare and to expect wait times as we will only have one bus. (and no we cannot just rent two busses as it is too expensive).


Hiking Information!!

*** This year the hike from camp to ammonite falls is back on Saturday May 18th. We realized last year how popular this was so we will be doing it in smaller groups. This is a 5km hike each way from Camp Calliet. If you plan on going on the hike proper footwear and clothing is required or you will not be allowed to go. Sign up to be at camp Saturday morning.


We also have big plans to keep you entertained – Check out:

  • Friday Night – Movies in the den

If you get your gear set up early on Friday night, check out our movies playing on the dance floor! Bring your own chair!

  • Saturday Night – “Reliving the Past” Talent Show

For all those talented people out there! Try to show us what you use to be good at on Skeeter Stage.

  • Dances will be on the Saturday and Sunday
