NANAIMO: drive south on the Island Highway (Highway 1). At the traffic light intersection of the Island Highway and Cobble Hill Road, turn right and continue to Shawnigan Lake.

If you are interested in sharing a ride to the Shawnigan Lake course please use our online rideshare board.
Ride sharing is a voluntary program.
BUS: Transportation (Web:Pacific Coach Lines Tel. 1-800-661-1725) is available from either direction with a stop at Mill bay, about 10 miles from camp. A taxi from Mill Bay to the Camp can be arranged ahead of time (there is only one in the area) for approximately $25 through Gord's Cobble Hill Taxi Tel. 1-250-715-7788. It is not easy for us to arrange rides to the camp from these stops. Therefore, if at all possible, please arrange your own transportation to the course site.
AIR: the Victoria Airport is the closest. It is best to request ride sharing in the week leading up to the course so as to be met at the airport or agreed upon location.
