Schools and Scottish Lakes »

Catlin Gable School

We have had the privilege this year of hosting 3 different schools at Scottish Lakes. These schools are not new to High Camp, they all have brought students before. They come back because the kids absolutely love it. Comments sent back in thank you notes read:

“Thank you for your hospitality, warm words, and amazing trails. I wish I had more time to explore, but at least I made it to High Point.”

“I had a blast skiing all around, playing in the snow and just hanging out in paradise. It was a great week!”

“Shredding the powder down was so dope!”

“Hiking to and skiing down from High Point was truly a life changing experience.”

Upgrades »

no dents!

We have come a long way since 1994 in terms of transportation equipment. We started with an ancient Thiokol and an old suburban as our only transportation vehicles in 1994. This has been a fantastic year for us in terms of upgrades. We purchased a 1991 Piston Bulley 240D snocat and 3 Skidoo snowmobiles. This puts our snowmobile fleet at 7 with 3 new gear sleds to add to the mix. We have 4 suburbans and are working on purchasing a 5th. We also bought a new old truck to use as a fuel truck during the winter and a log transport truck during woodcutting. We have come a very long way!
