Camp out July 2023 Lyles Lake and Mount BrennanCamp out July 2023


Vernon Outdoors Club organizes hiking and cycling camp outs every year to give members the opportunity to explore areas too distant for day trips. Camp out locations are selected to give a wide variety of outdoor activities close to a variety of accommodation from simple tent camping to  hotels or other fixed roof accommodation. Camp outs usually include fun and social activities in addition to great outdoor adventures.  As camp outs are multi-day activities you need to be a member of the club to attend.


West Kootenays, Kaslo, BC

JULY 24 – 28, 2023

Vernon Outdoors Club members are invited to participate in FIVE DAYS of amazing hiking in the West Kootenay Valley, with the central location of Kaslo, BC. With three hikes offered daily – Easy, Moderate and Difficult, there’s something for everyone!

Book your accommodations now! RV’ers and campers are welcomed at Mirror Lake (mention that you are booking with VOC to have your Mirror Lake site near other members) as well as in the Kaslo Municipal Campground, lodges and numerous B & B’s.

Spouses of members who are not members themselves, are also invited to participate. A $5 fee and waiver for the nonmember spouse will be required for each hike. 

The VOC Registration Package will be emailed to each member before the end of April. A $25 fee will accompany the registration to offset some expenses that the Scouting Team incur. The FINAL REGISTRATION PACKAGE, which will include all the details of the Hike Camp, will be emailed out a week before camp begins.

We are looking forward to seeing you in July!
