WELCOME TO CAMP WESTWIND!
To access our registration system click here.
Westwind allows campers to leave civilization behind,and enter a world of sun, sand, and new experiences. Campers are welcomed as they cross the Salmon River on canoes (or ferries), met by camp staff singing them in to what we hope will be a highlight of their summer!
Once at Westwind campers immerse themselves in outdoor activities and camp traditions, and imagination comes alive! Campers spend a week participating in cabin activities and choosing some of their own daily activities while making friends, developing skills, growing in confidence and creating lasting memories in Westwind's wild and scenic setting.
Main camp is divided into three units by age*:
- Sherwood grades 1-4
- Highlands 5-7
- Alpine 7-8
*Depending on registration this varies
All the cabins have electricity and heat as well windows that open for good ventilation.
During their camp adventures, campers spend their days trying new activities and participating in some of Westwind’s most exciting activities. No two days are ever the same!
