The Sunken Lake Camp is a rustic camp, available for rental by youth groups and other interested parties.  Facilities include the main lodge (electricity, wood heater, fridge, gas stove, running water, tables & chairs, outfitted kitchen) and three cabins (each cabin has bunks for 8).  The camp is conveniently located within a 15 minute drive of Wolfville and New Minas, on the South Mountain of the Annapolis Valley.  The camp is operated by the Wolfville Boy Scout Association, and has been used by Scouting and other youth groups in Annapolis Valley, NS, since 1920. 

Several day hikes can be made from various points around the lake. The lake has an interesting geological history.  There are some pictures & videos of the camp.  The videos are also on youtube.

The camp has been lucky to receive donations and grants from both private individuals and organizations.  The donors who make the camp possible are now listed on a separate page.



 















Fall 2014: Headquarters cabin comes down with the help of members of the church of the latter day saints.  We saved some of the boards, including one with text from Gerald Porter from 1933, the year the cabin was built.
