Silver Lake Forestry Center 's New Lodge Nears Completion

Just over two years after the lodge at Silver Lake Forestry Centre burned down, a new lodge is almost completed and is expected to open next month. Almost 2500 sq. ft. larger than its predecessor, there is a much greater seating capacity and an opportunity to house a wider variety of activities and functions. Much of the construction was done using donated materials from supporting forest companies, so it truly was a community effort in replacing this building after such a significant loss to the facility.

Silver Lake 's new lodge

Located about 45 minutes south of Kelowna, near Peachland, BC, Silver Lake Forestry Center has been in operation for the past 38 years and offers quality forest education programs and outdoor experiences to young people between the ages of 7 and 16 years. In addition to providing educational camp experiences, Silver Lake is also used by many school and community groups throughout the year for field trips and events. From canoeing, swimming and hiking to archery, orienteering, forest resource study and winter Olympics, students are exposed to a wide variety of seasonal activities in a beautiful lake setting surrounded by forest.

This year, for the first time, a Spring Break camp will be offered from March 12-17 for $267.50, the same cost as the week long camps offered throughout the summer from early July to mid August.
