Passport to Shawnigan

Celebrate Family Day 2014 with your Passport to Shawnigan

Family Day is a week away. Register your family to participate in the Buildings Past, Present and Future activities in Shawnigan Lake. Go to the Chippery, the museum or the barbershop to register and collect your passport. Have fun. It's perfect weather for a family trek.

Due to potential weather conditions, the Family Day events will end up in the Shawnigan Lake Community Centre. The museum will also be open for registration and confirmation of passport visits.

The plan for the swim is that participants start only from the shore (not from the wharf) and will enter the water up to a rope boundary, which will not be very deep. Participants must register and sign a waiver. Participants may only be in the water for up to 5 minutes, and young children must be within arms reach of parents at all times. First Responders will be on site for safety. The wharf is only to be used for spectators (not for swimmers). Hot chocolate & cookies are free for participants, and $2 for spectators. A campfire will be on-site for warmth.
