Holidaze is our large WCA camp held each summer at Camp Olave.

West Coast Area began with the amalgamation of our legacy areas, Burnaby Royal, Fraser Delta and Vancouver and we have grown from there! After several years of fun, friendship and lots of great events we have more girls and more adults. Join us! Our Annual Reports provide pictures and stories of our year. Click on the covers below. The 100th Birthday of Guiding in Canada was in 2010.

Soar


We sent six buses and two gear trucks, we survived a huge storm with thunder and lightning and we spent time in the sunshine. Our girls and Guiders joined about 2500 girls and leaders from all over BC, Canada and the world. Soar is our BC large camp and happens every three years in a different part of BC. We have had Soars in Prince George, Sooke, Trail, Merritt, Parksville and Agassiz and Enderby.

The next Soar will be in 2017 in beautiful Smithers, BC.
