Welcome to Bark Lake Leadership and Conference Centre

Leading the Way Since 1948

Living a Life of Adventure…

In this beautiful wild place!

Bark Lake Leadership and Conference Centre began as the Ontario Camp Leadership facility at Bark Lake in 1948. We have been forerunners in Outdoor Education and Leadership experiences in North America since that time, for staff and students, corporate leaders and organizational groups!

We are passionate about making leaders, building character, nature and adventure based experiences, and creating an environment for excellence in group interaction in this beautiful, wild place!

We have great year round facilities, excellent food and are the perfect venue for everything, including:

  • Adventure Races
  • Artists
  • Cadets
  • Church Groups
  • Events
  • Musicians
  • Schools
  • Weddings

Let us design a leadership experience to suit your needs. Whether you have a group of twenty or two hundred and twenty; whether your group is a finely tuned machine or just starting out; whether you are a school group, sports team, or business, we can help!

Your Concierge in Hiking Boots!
