Cameron Lakes Lodge Weekend Winter Festival (Co-ed)

Feb 24 & 25, North of Chetwynd

Level  1 – 4 (see page bottom)


Cameron Lakes Lodge is an Outdoor Education Center owned by the School District just North of Moberly Lake. It is a stunning property on two small lakes surrounded by trails.

Saturday 1:00pm 

Join us at this beautiful location to celebrate winter by x-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing or winter hiking and then settle into the lodge for a delicious dinner, music and more. For those who like to watch winter from indoors we have Dreamers Macrame coming to do a macrame workshop in the lodge during the afternoon. 

Saturday night

Sleepovers are possible in the bunk style cabins. This means you bring your own sleeping bags and pillows and take yourself back to when you had a bunk sleepover at summer camp.

There are two bunk style cabins. One cabin will be available to rent on its own for a group of friends and the other will be up for grabs for anyone who needs a place to crash. Each cabin sleeps up to 20.

If a bunk style sleepover is not your idea of fun, grab a more private room in Hudson Hope at the Stillwater Inn. The hotel is just 18min from the Lake.

Sunday morning

Continental style breakfast will be served, and yoga will be practiced in the main lodge.

We will have electricity at the lodge but NO RUNNING WATER – this means you must use the newly renovated, high class outhouses. 

Explore the Kakwa

March 2nd 

Level 4 (see page bottom)



Full day with 2 hours drive time each way 100% worth it! 

Car pooling available  Snowshoe or ski trek into various areas in and around the Kakwa.

We have a few secrets up our sleeve for this adventure. Shhhhh….

Powder King Ski & Snowboard Community Day

This is a community event – We don’t make any money off this event, we just like to ride together in a group. If you need accommodations, you must book them yourself. We will post a meet time and location for Saturday morning and have lunch together at the restaurant. We ski or snowboard together as a big group or a couple of smaller groups. Open invite! If we have a group of 10 or more we can apply for corporate pricing for lift tickets. Car pooling will be an option. Choose your lodging here: https://www.azouzettalakelodge.com/cabins-suites
