BURRY HEIGHTS SUMMER CAMPING 2013
The Burry Heights Camp and Retreat Center was officially opened on March 21, 1982. It is located approximately one kilometer south of the Trans-Canada Highway on the Salmonier Line. Each summer the Burry Heights Board of Directors organizes a series of camps which are supported by the United Church, however campers from all denominations are welcome to attend where spaces permit. All camps are 5 days long, beginning on Sunday at 4:00 pm and ending on Friday at noon.
These camps are an excellent way to make new friends, enjoy the outdoor experience and just have fun! The camping schedule for 2013 is below.
