Coming North on the Malahat (Hwy 1) from Victoria:
Look for the Malahat Mountain Inn, Malahat Gas Station, Malahat Bungalows area. In about 1 km you will see an amber flashing light on the highway and signs for South Shawnigan Lake. Take this exit and travel approximately 7 kms to where the road divides straight and a sharp left turn. There will be signs for the Provincial Park and Camp Pringle pointing left. Take this left turn onto West Shawnigan Lake Road and proceed another 7 kms where you should notice signs for the Provincial Park. We are the very next driveway after the park and we have large signs indicating Camp Pringle and the George Pringle Memorial Camp.
Coming South on the Trans Canada Hwy (#1) from Duncan:
Look for the big strip mall with a Country Grocer seemingly in the middle of nowhere (near Cobble Hill). Take the right hand exit at this major set of lights onto the Cobble Hill/Shawnigan Lake Road. Take this road to the end where it intersects Renfrew Road near Mason’s Beach (store on the right, beach straight ahead). Turn right onto Renfrew Road and proceed for about 4.5 kms just past the West Arm Grill. Look for the sharp left switchback road which is West Shawnigan Lake Road, there are signs for the Provincial Park and Camp Pringle just before this intersection. Turn left onto W. Shawnigan Lake Road and proceed for about 3 kms. When you see the Fire Hall on the right side of the road you are close to camp. Look for the big circular sign for Camp Pringle just before our driveway. Turn left into the camp driveway. If you see the Provincial Park you have gone a little too far.
NOTE: On many maps there will be a road shown as Armstrong Road, this road does not exist, but is basically where our driveway is located.

Mission: We provide opportunities for campers of all ages to experience God’s love in a close relationship with other people and the natural environment.
We Teach the Three R‘s: Respect the environment; Respect others; Respect yourself.Our Commitments:
Throughout each week at camp our Chaplain leads Faith Exploration sessions and campers explore the camp theme in discussions and activities. We don’t teach or preach faith to people at camp, but share faith with everybody. We greet and close the day with songs, activities and reflections on the significance of the camping experience.
Camp Pringle is a safe, respectful place to explore faith and spirituality, and through that learn more about yourself.
We understand the need for parents to know how their child is doing at camp. We also recognize the need for children to learn independence and coping skills for being away from home and feel this is an essential part of the camp experience.
As such we discourage calls to campers. We also don’t permit cell phones or smart phones as we want to encourage a non-electronic experience. To help follow your child’s camp experience we do our best to post lots of photos each day showing the children having fun at camp.
Camp will email a password to parents of registered campers. The link to the photos is is here.
If you have concerns about our electronics of phone call policy, please contact the camp office.
Camp Pringle sells a variety of souvenirs each summer. These items make great pre-camp, Christmas or birthday gifts. We purchase top quality name brands such as Hanes, Gildan and American Apparel. Items are available for sale at drop off and pick up for each camp.
