Venue

STILLWOOD CAMP AND CONFERENCE CENTRE

Amidst breathtaking beauty, Stillwood Camp and Conference Centre is located in Columbia Valley, near Chilliwack, British Columbia.

 

Stillwood sits on 100 acres, enveloped in majestic trees, borders on Provincial park land and overlooks the beautiful Cultus Lake near Chilliwack. With all the outdoor activities and fresh air, you are sure to work up a healthy appetite. Meals of a high standard are served regularly, enhancing time together while the day’s lessons are digested. As old and new friends break bread together, the buzz around the tables amplifies the signature Stillwood atmosphere of joy and celebration.

 

Rest is welcome after a day of challenge and recreation in Stillwood’s remarkable mountain setting. Day’s end is a good time to curl up in front of a fireplace with a friend and talk about your experiences, or just be alone with your thoughts. At night, you can often find bonfires scattered between the lodges.

The facilities and staff at Stillwood strike a good balance between excellence and humility, and provide the space for encouragement and growth of the whole person. Come and see what makes the Stillwood experience so unique.
