For the Townsman

On October 26, Blue Lake Centre hosted the first annual Goblin Gallop Walk/Run for Camp in partnership with the Bigfoot Running Club. 100 per cent of the proceeds were donated to Blue Lake Centre to support environment education camp programs for youth.

The walk/run began at the College of the Rockies and continued along 4km or 8km trails through the Cranbrook Community Forest. Thank you to the Bigfoot Running Club, Cranbrook Community Forest Society, Cranbrook Search and Rescue, volunteers and participants for making this fundraiser a success and raising over $1,200 for Blue Lake camp programs.

Blue Lake Centre is operated by Blue Lake Forest Education Society, a non-profit, charity organization that provides programming focused on local environmental issues and sustainability practices related to forests, wildlife, soils, water, biodiversity and alternative energy.

Since 1977, Blue Lake Centre has been a top destination for youth outdoor education programs.

The camp community is a positive and supportive environment allowing campers to develop independence, confidence, and skills to succeed in life.

Hands on lessons and traditional camp activities make the camp experience fun and educational. The impact from attending camp can last a lifetime.
