P1020534Pagans On The Rock Campout is organised by members of the Pagan community as an affordable, family friendly, weekend long Pagan community camp out. It’s a place where we can gather together for a relaxing weekend in the welcoming environment of like minded people.

The campout is set up to be as affordable and accessible to as many people as possible. Our fee structure is set up so that we break even with expenses at approximately 30 adult attendees. If we pass that mark any funds raised will go towards lowering the registration fees for the next year.

Nanaimo Lakes Camp is located 45 minutes south of Nanimo on Vancouver Island. The park and campground are surrounded by beautiful forest and sits near the shore of First Lake where it empties out in to the Nanaimo River.

The site has a large picnic shelter that is equipped with a fireplace so even if it rains everyone can stay warm and dry.P1070623

A small row of vacation cabins lay about 150 meters from the edge of the camp and we ask campers to please be respectful of them.

This is a bring your own food and supplies event! however, as many folks will likely have cooking appliances, there is no need for everyone to bring a camp stove, but please remember to bring your own lawn chair!

No water is available on site but we will be hauling in 150 gallons and our portable sink with water heater for everyone’s use. We ask that you please bring your own drinking and cooking water.

We will be running the bus out form Nanaimo this year and we be pulling a large until trailer that will make loading all the camping gear/water barrels/firewood much easier.  No more loading everything in the back door! (Keep an eye on our Facebook group for information on the bus trip).

A temple dedicated to the Aphrodite and Pan will be set up and available after the first evening. The temple  is a tradition that can be found at most Pagan gatherings and is a place where adults may worship the gods in whatever way they see fit. The temple space is set up away from the main tenting area to provide privacy and ensure that surrounding campers are not disturbed. This is the only non kid friendly area of the event.
