Camp Olave 90 years of fun and friendship
Camp Olave is a year round camp with winterized cabins, Kwi Kwa, Ranger, Galalina Cottage, Brownie Hideaway, Brock, Gingerbread, Tipi Wakan, Panabode and Nawilak. Book a cozy retreat by the sea.
In 1927 a dedicated group of women purchased an abandoned log dump called Rat Portage Lumber Camp. Through the depression they paid off the mortagage with bake sales, cake walks, penny
drives and personal donations. Through the war they continued to improve and expand the site and add more cabins. With thousands and thousands of Girl Guide cookies and volunteer hours and the assistance
of the community we have hosted generations of girls and women and introduced them to the joys of camping, the beauty of coastal BC and the fun and friendship of Girl Guides.
It is an amazing gift to the future.

Wind blows in the trees
Softly blowing silently
