Wedding Party Rates
All wedding parties can be secured during the months of June, July and August. Unfortunately, outside of these times we cannot guarantee availability due to regular bookings at the campground. A deposit of $1,000 CAD is required at the time of booking to secure your reservation. Our wedding rate is $2,500 to cover the full use of the campground and its facilities for a 2 day period (Friday am to Sunday am). Additional days (setup/breakdown etc) can be secured for $275/day.

All wedding parties must be accompanied by a certificate of general liability specifically for your event that indemnifies Camp Caillet, its Management Team and Scouts Canada against any and all claims. General Liability can be purchased from any mortgage broker and costs in the region of $150.

DJ's, Bands and Music
Camp Caillet is located in the governance area of the Regional District of Nanaimo. If you are proposing loud music, the RDN bylaw states that it must cease by 11pm. No extension of the bylaw is possible and we insist all noise is reduced by 11pm.
