Anglin Lake Semi-Wilderness Camp

CLOSED Due to COVID-19

 

 

Scouts Canada closed all properties in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As of September 1st, they will begin a systematic approach to re-opening. Properties must go through a planning and approval process.  At this time, the only camp properties that are being considered to re-open are those that can service scouting groups for day use only.  This is to follow provincial health pandemic guidelines.  The Anglin Lake camp committee will not be applying for re-opening until overnight camping is permitted by the province and Scouts Canada.

 

The Saskatchewan Service Corps is currently working on some outdoor activities and meetings that they could do with groups in their home communities.  If this is something that interests you, please contact us.

 

Introduction:

 

Anglin Lake Semi-Wilderness Camp is located approximately 65km north-west of Prince Albert in the Great Blue Heron Provincial Park. It is an incredibly beautiful camp set in the amazing northern boreal forest.  It is situated on the lake. This camp is staffed by the Saskatchewan Service Corps  otherwise known as "the Corps".  There is no limit to the adventures you can have in this phenomenol setting.
