26th Halifax Cabin

A place for unique, memorable outdoor recreational experiences


26th Halifax Cabin- “Our Humble Rustic Home”

26th Halifax CabinThe 26th Halifax cabin is located close to Halifax, near Miller Lake.  It is a rustic place that allows our youth to explore nature without making families travel too far from home. This cabin and the surround forest is ideal for our youth (particularly our Beavers and Cubs, aged 5-11) to learn about camping, safety in the wilderness, and friendship while having fun in the beautiful Nova Scotian outdoors. Our cabin features a downstairs kitchen and eating space as well as a “leaders room” with bunks for sleeping and a Large sleeping loft with fire escape.


The Cabin is located at Miller Lake Mainland Park in Fall River. There is a gate at the entrance of 100 Perrin Drive’s gravel road. The Cabin is #10, located about 100 metres down the gravel road beyond the gate, on the right. You can park on Perrin Dr. and walk in past the gate down the gravel road.

Why fundraise?

We are fundraising for this facility because per Scouts Canada rules, we cannot use monies fundraised with the participation of youth for infrastructure projects, such as the cabin.

Cabin restoration – work needed

We’ve itemized work that needs to be done to our cabin facility:

  • Build culvert bridge
  • Kitchen maintenance
  • Interior painting
  • Fundraise for our yearly property lease fee
