2018 Summer Camp

Takysie Lake, BC, August 6 - August 11, 2018
Takysie Lake Resort
37530 Eakin Settlement Rd
Burns Lake, BC

The Lakes District Rock and Gem Club has again graciously agreed to co-host the event with the BCLS at Takysie Lake, about an hour south of Burns Lake, after last year’s event was cancelled due to forest fires. A few members braved the smoke and closed highways last August to check out the area, and were very happy with the resort and the lapidary materials available in the area.
