Cumberland Lake campground open house Saturday

Change is in the air at Cumberland Lake Park Campground on Comox Lake.

Change is in the air at Cumberland Lake Park Campground on Comox Lake. Historically run only as a campground, the newly formed Cumberland Lake Wilderness Society was granted the contract for operations in 2015, and this year the public will notice some changes. CLWS is a non-profit society and for the 2016 season has developed a variety of outdoor and wilderness-based programming as part of the services available to campers, community members and others visiting this unique wilderness area. There is also a new café on site, offering a variety of quality choices.

The group invites the public to its programming open house and café launch on Saturday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., during which outdoor guides will be available to answer any questions about the upcoming summer programming. The event is free and will include prizes and food sampling, nature crafts, a sandcastle competition, an archery demo, family wilderness games and more.

“We are ecstatic to be rolling out this amazing programming,” said executive director Jamie Noakes. “Your support this summer will help the long-term future of outdoor education at Cumberland Lake Park,” added board member Will Kosloski. “As a non-profit society, we want to create opportunities for everyone to be able to participate in wilderness learning and awareness.”
