The Experience

Above all, our adult overnight summer camp is more fun than you can imagine! You get to experience so many different types of activities in an amazing outdoor environment! The Camp Barnard site, located in the Sooke Hills west of Victoria, B.C. has a massive lake, streams, fields, forests, fire pits, cooking shelters, an archery range and many other ammenities! Participants learn about the natural environment, camping & outdoor skills, leadership and more.

There is just no better way to wrap up your time at camp than a night in the woods having campfires, swimming in the lake, cooking outside & more! If you are still unsure or think this may be too advanced for you, please Contact Us.

Safety and Food


Western Educational Adventures takes safety seriously. Not only do we want our participants to have an exceptional time, but just as importantly, we want them to return home safe and sound. All of Western Educational Adventures staff are certified in high level first aid and have years of experience managing risk in the outdoors. You won’t find a more qualified staff team anywhere else!

"Landon had arranged a tour of Vancouver Island for our family including various hiking, kayaking and camping trips. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Landon not only ensured that we were safe and comfortable but went the extra mile to engage all of us with the biology and natural surroundings of the various ecosystems we encountered. Our children were thrilled with the adventure."

-Carole Damnjanovic

Food and Food Allergies

We believe that a good experience starts with good nutrition. Proper diet and eating habits are lacking in today’s society - a result of readily available fast foods, processed foods and a lack of nutritional education. We strive to provide quality, simple, wholesome meals with limited processed ingredients – in addition to the occasional smores and limited other tasty treats. This is part of why we include our participants in all meal planning, purchasing and cooking.

We are also very experienced in dealing with dietary restrictions and serious food allergies. Great care is taken to avoid serious participant food allergens whenever possible. Where this is not possible, we take great care to avoid cross contamination of ingredients.

"Landon guided an overnight trip for our family on the Juan de Fuca trail. Healthy eating is important to us. Landon helped our kids build an outdoor oven and they were soon baking an amazing dinner. It’s an incredible feeling knowing that you can look after yourself in the outdoors."

-Carole Damnjanovic
