Camp Roryis set in the wilderness just 10 km outside of Rossland, BC towards the US border.
About the Camp Camp Rory is a wilderness camp with lots of room for exploring and there are many hiking trails in and around the camp.
Founded in 1938 when 90 hectares of land was sold for $500 to trustees to the Girl Guides of Canada. It was then that Mr. R.F. (Rory) MacLennan built the original pool, cabins, and a lodge, which has since been torn down but the old chimney remains in tack and is a wonderful historical memory for all.
For 80 years Camp Rory has been a favourite for Girl Guide groups from the Kootenay and Boundary areas, and beyond, to stay in the picturesque cabins and tent sites.
