Site Directions: Summerland is 15 minutes north of Penticton, 30 minutes south of the Coquihalla Connector, 45 minutes south of Kelowna. Make your best way to Summerland via Highway 97. Turn West at the South traffic light (McDonalds) and travel up the hill to the four way stop. Turn left at the four way stop and follow this road as it curves to the left. You will come to another four way stop – go straight through. You are now on Prairie Valley road.

Stay on Prairie Valley Road as it passes through farmland, orchards, and woods. The road changes names a few times; Meadow Valley Road, Fishlake Road, but it is still the same road. The road is paved until 100 feet before the entrance to Camp Boyle, so if you suddenly find yourself on gravel you have missed a curve. There will be plenty of SCA reassurance signs on the way.
