Camp Artaban is situated right on the waterfront of Long Bay, Gambier Island in beautiful Howe Sound, just northwest of Vancouver. You can get here by water taxi out of West Vancouver in about 30 minutes, though when you get here, you will feel very far away. We are tucked in behind Mount Artaban so the city lights are largely blocked at night for a beautiful starry sky.
Transportation for our summer programs is covered as part of the fee. If, however, you are coming as part of a rental group or have another purpose for coming to visit, you may need to book your own transportation. The following are (in alphabetical order) the companies that we generally use, along with links to their websites for your convenience.
