History of Hollyburn Chalet
Hollyburn Chalet is a one of a kind heritage log chalet a short hike from the Cypress Park Road and
high up on Hollyburn Mountain. The Hollyburn Chalet which has given so much fun for so many girls over the years was leased in 1963 by the Burnaby Girl Guides and purchased in 1965.
The building is much older and has a colourful history. Click here for a history of the Hollyburn Chalet.
Who Can Attend?
Because girls must pack all their own gear into Hollyburn Chalet, including bedroll, winter weight clothing, and supplies—and because snow conditions vary —
this camp is not appropriate for girls under Guide age, or Girl Guides and Guiders who are inexperienced campers.
We do not accept overnight bookings for Brownies or Sparks. However, day trips for lunch or snow outings can be arranged as availability allows.
Please note, Hollyburn Chalet cannot be rented out to school, family, or any other outside groups / events due to insurance reasons.
