The Powell Lake Outdoor Learning Centre is located in Powell River's secluded backcountry.
Surrounded by parkland and crown forest the Centre is nestled on a small headland between two bays on the shores of Powell Lake. Once a salt-water fjord the large freshwater lake is more than one mile deep in places and is situated in the heart of the Coast Mountain Range.
A short hike from the Centre will bring you to BC's first and only fully accessible wilderness park area, featuring a 13 km long barrier free lakeside trail with cabins and other amenities. Activities such as Mountain biking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding and many others are available on site.
Built with accessibility in mind, the site is bright and sunny and its range of activity options provides participants and groups with a range of ways to challenge themselves outdoors. The facility boasts immediate access to the 180 km Sunshine Coast Trail as well as the Powell Forest Canoe Route, a circuit route of lakes and portages.
With a fully appointed commercial kitchen, spectacular Main Lodge and Dining Room and heated sleeping accommodations for up to 42, the Outdoor Learning Centre is an ideal venue for school classes, outdoor education programs, conferences, retreats and other private group gatherings.
