The mission of Camp Koolaree is
to provide a camp experience in a safe, sustainable and natural setting
and to foster a deeper individual connection
to Community, Creation and the Creator among campers and staff. 

 


How do you say that?
Is it Koo-LAY-ree, Koo-LAH-ree,
Koo-la-REE or KOOL-a-ree?

The name KOOLAREE is an acronym that came from
KOOtenay LAke REligious Education
so there is some debate over the correct pronunciation.  
Founders in old home movie  footage can be heard calling it “Koo-LAH-ree”, but when set to music in favourite campfire songs, the name is sung more like  “KOO- la-REE”. Over the years, the spoken pronunciation has changed to match the songs, with the emphasis on KOOL.
Let’s face it, camp is cool!
