Gavin Lake Forest Education Society relies on donations from the public to keep our doors open and continue to bring youth out to the forests to learn and recreate.   The generous donations that we receive help us reach our goal of providing grade 6 classes in BC School Districts #27, #28 and #74 with a three day ALL EXPENSES PAID outdoor school program.   Donations also allow us to provide a BELOW COST venue to schools, youth or non-profit groups for fundraising activities, workshops, gatherings and recreation.  


Make a monthly contribution to support our efforts year-round, or show your support today with a one-time donation.  You can contribute by clicking the Donate Now button below or emailing Mike at  All contributions are tax-deductible, and go towards the outdoor school program or new infrastructures required for camp.

Another way to donate to Gavin Lake is by simply dropping your bottles off at the Williams Lake Return-it Depot (232 MacKenzie Avenue South).

You do not have to sort your bottles, just drop off your empties in a bag and tell the cashier that you want to donate the money to the Gavin Lake Forest Education Society.  All money raised will go to funding our outdoor school program.


We want to express our heartfelt thanks for the donations that we received in 2022.  Your generous donation will go a long way in helping bring youth outdoors to learn, explore, appreciate and conserve our natural resources.
