Camp Byng is located in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast just north of Gibsons, BC. With 1200 metres of ocean foreshore, Camp Byng is the premier Scout property of the Pacific Coast Council. There are three lodges available, each with sleeping "hulls". Each lodge has a full commercial kitchen, large activity room, and some dormitory space. The camp has wilderness areas for tenting and exploring, some with open-air style shelters. Camp Byng also has campfire sites, a spiritual centre, low ropes course with activities for all ages, archery range, nature trail, basketball court, parachutes, and tug-o-war ropes in all lodges, and is in close proximity to many local natural parks.

Controversy: In November 2022, Scouts Canada closed Camp Byng due to 'declining use' and 'significant maintenance requirements' but says it 'has absolutely no intention whatsoever' to put Camp Byng up for sale. There is a GoFundMe in support of Camp Byng. Later, the owner of the camp, Scout Properties (B.C./Yukon), announced that they would re-open the camp without Scouts Canada, an act Scouts Canada called "trespass", according to the Coast Reporter. As-of March 2024, the camp is open.
