Camp Gilwell is located in the Comox Valley along the banks of the Brown's River, close to Strathcona Provincial Park and Mount Washington Ski Resort. The area features snowboarding, downhill, and cross-country ski runs in winter, and hiking and mountain bike trails in the summer.

The camp has four cabins with electrical heating with bunk beds, no mats provided. The camp has a covered picnic shelter with a new fireplace for warmth on those damp days. There are four double outhouses and a wash house with three indoor flush toilets. There is a limited shower facility with a small hot water tank. The camp has a good size sports field, campfire pits, and lots of tenting sites. The campsites were developed and maintained by the local scouting groups, we ask that everyone respect the efforts of so many and try to keep things clean and safe for fellow campers.
