GSCA owns and manages 11,734 hectares (28,995 acres) of land throughout its 3,191 square kilometre (1,983 square mile) jurisdiction.

At the GSCA we believe that time spent in nature has countless benefits for children that will last a lifetime, which is why the program allows campers to be outside exploring the environment around us!

If you are planning on building, changing the existing grade, adding or removing material if you are near a river, stream, lake, shoreline, wetland or slope, you may need a permit for these activities.

Our staff are experienced, certified and licenced to provide services that benefit you and your property. Check out more information about forestry services, tree orders and our annual tree sale.
