This Saturday will see the grand opening of Cowichan Lake’s brand new Teen Challenge Camp.

“We’re going to have hot dogs, hamburgers, tours of the facility,” representative Andy Peters said.

“It’s pretty casual.”

The grand opening celebration will begin at 1 p.m., Saturday, October 1, and will continue until a 4 p.m. ribbon cutting.

Celebrations will continue with a 6 p.m. banquet at Duncan’s New Life Church.

The Teen Challenge Camp is a faith-based 12-month addictions program for young adults, which started up last year at the previously vacant Sylvan Acres Bible Camp, north of Lake Cowichan. Its participants range in age from 19 to 55.

To get to the camp, one must turn right on the road adjacent to the one leading up to the Meade Creek Recycling Drop-Off Depot on the Youbou Highway, and then drive past the satellite dishes.
