We are excited to be taking our Southern Section’s Summer Camp to the Highwood Group Use Area for a change of scenery! A different area for us to explore, a bit closer to our Southern Alberta home-base and of course, offers a plethora of hikes, scrambles and climbing (particularly trad climbing close to the Highwood Group Use location). Also a renowned area for fly-fishing during down-time and quiet evenings- who knew!

The one fee of $125 per person covers the cost for all 4 nights, hiking/scrambling/climbing activities will be organized and led by our mighty outdoor leaders Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Camp fees will also help us supply campfire evening snacks! Meals are not included, but a cooking shelter with picnic tables is provided. An efficient, eco-friendly dish washing/sanitizing station is also a priority this year to minimize packing multiples of the same thing. A couple time references; Highwood Group Use is roughly 2.5 hours from Lethbridge and 30-45 minutes from the Peter Lougheed Discover Centre.

*Check in time is after 4pm on Thursday August 9th,

check out time is before 2pm on Monday August 13th*

There are 15 tent sites available, to register please choose from the Tent Holder, Participant or Family Site options:

Tent Holder Sites (1-12): Please bring your own tent. Sharing with a participant is encouraged to save on space. One tent per site only please!

Day Rate:  Can't join us for overnight camping?  Well come for a day and join a trip to hike, scramble or rock climb.  We recommend arriving at the camp ground around 8am so you are able to choose which activity you would like to do with the trip leaders.  Sorry this day rate does not include overnight camping.  

Lastly, this is an ACC members camp so please ensure your membership is up to date.   Lack of gear concerns, questions and words of stoke can all be directed to   kira_bateman@hotmail.ca

Looking forward to another summer camp in the beautiful Kananaskis Country!
