Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre Facilities

At Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre (TBOEC) guests have a few options on accommodation and amenities during their stay. Guests can choose to camp or stay in cabins, cook their own food or have food cooked by our chef at our historic lodge, which was built around the 1870s.

The Covered Firepit Shelter


The Lodge Lounge Area

Our historic lodge has gone through more than 100 years of history. Initially built as a family home, the lodge was also run as a summer resort, accommodating sixty guests at a time. In 1979, the provincial government purchased the land and turned it into Tribune Bay Provincial Park.

Around 1988, TBOEC started renovating and rebuilding the site, slowly developing it into an outdoor education facility. Today, the lodge hosts our commercial kitchen where groups can have food catered and have access to: accessible washrooms, a dining area for at least 80 people, a large meeting area featuring a stone fireplace, and a deck boasting a beautiful view of Tribune Bay.

We have three large camping areas (divided into 8 campsites for Family Adventure Camping) that each provide semi-private tenting areas, pit toilets, and a wash-up area with potable cold water.

Each larger site also includes separate beach access paths and a central meeting area with a firepit.

For groups cooking their own food, two covered cookshelters are available and include a cooking and eating area, a food storage area, power, and a refrigerator. Guests using the cookshelters for food should plan to bring their own propane and camp stoves, all cooking dishes, and food. Organized overnight school groups can book our large 2-burner propane stove for a small fee.

We have five varieties of cabins to stay in at TBOEC. Each cabin has mattresses and either bunk-beds or platform bunks. No bedding is provided so please bring your own.
