Camp Wirribara

Welcome to Camp Wirribara!

Camp Wirribara, Nipissing Area Scouts Canada's Scout camp, is nestled among tall red pines on the side of a hill on Little Clear Lake in Boulter Township, about 30 kilometres east of Powassan, Ontario.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s the Ministry of Natural Resources, then the Department of Lands and Forests, reforested this area and built this camp for Junior Rangers whose mandate then, was to plant trees. By the mid-1970's the task was completed and the camp was closed.

Scouts Canada Nipissing District purchased the camp and reached a Land Use Agreement with the MNR in 1980 and renamed it Camp Wirribara, "Place of the Tall Pines".

The land around the camp remains Crown Land as it is a Natural Historic Geological Area. The camp sits on the Boulter Esker, the longest such glacial deposit in Ontario.

Little Clear Lake, ideal for teaching basic canoeing and kayak skills, is a kettle lake and stocked annually with trout.

This isolated part of Boulter Township is a fully forested area teeming with wildlife just outside the northwest corner of Ontario's renown Algonguin Park.

 Camp Wirribara offers a wide range of activity opportunities such as swimming, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, snowmobiling, and more.
