About Camp Jubilee

Camp Jubilee is located ~60 km northwest of Victoria on 114 acres of primarily forested land, near the community of Shirley, BC.    There are 3 tenting sites and no power available.  The tenting sites have open fields and are surrounded by a beautiful west coast forest.  A salmon bearing stream runs through the property.

 

SITES

Three tenting sites offer a variety of camping experiences depending on the size and experience of the group.

Kirby

Kirby Site holds up to 40 overnight campers (includes youth & staff) and is somewhat wheelchair accessible. It contains a combination cooking/dining shelter with a woodburning stove and a permanent LDU as well as 4 platform (Vytex) tents which hold 6 campers each. There are 4 outhouses on site and a campfire pit ring.

 

Bridges

Bridges Site holds up to 40 overnight campers (includes youth & staff). It contains two new cooking/dining shelters and a permanent LDU. There are 4 outhouses on site and a campfire ring. There are 4 patrol boxes, dish pans, pots, carts and more equipment in the Bridges panabode shelter.

 

Gateway

Gateway Site has a smaller shelter for cooking and eating and a large field.  This site is good for smaller Pathfinder or Ranger units.  There are 4 outhouses near the parking area that can be used by this site.

Additional Information

Water

The potable water is stored in a huge tank in the parking lot.  It is to be used for all domestic use (cooking, tooth brushing, drinking, washing hands & face).  It does not need to be treated before use.  Hand water pumps provide well water for fire buckets and can be boiled for some uses.

 

Phones

The camp does not have a phone, but cell phone coverage is expected in the area later in 2022. Cell phone coverage and Shaw Public WiFi coverage are available near the Shirley community hall and park.

Sooke Town Centre (2.5 km west) has gas stations, two grocery stores, three pharmacies, fast food and regular restaurants.
