Did you know about the Hippy Hole…

Did you know there are many things to do at and around the Whatshan Lake Retreat? For instance, there is a most unique swimming hole that has a little something for everyone. You can sit on the rocks and sunbathe, check out the beautiful nature surrounding and go for a dip in the nice cool, clean and crisp water. For those of you looking for a thrill there are multi levels of cliff jumping around the Hippy Hole. The best part, this natural attraction is only a 5-10 minute walk from the main grounds.


More bands and activities…

Things are starting ramp up and you can now check out several bands, including Cod Gone Wild, along with their bios and interviews. Also, we are receiving many requests to bring back the games and activities from previous years so we’ve done just that. Have a look at Artists and Activities.

VISION confirmed to return as headliner!

We are proud to announce that VISION has agreed to return as one of the main acts for the Whatshan Jam! Those in attendance last year will remember how awesome it was to revisit one of the best cover bands ever to come out of the West Kootenays.


Hello Whatshan Jam Fans and Supporters!

We are very excited for the 3rd annual Whatshan Jam! For those keeping track, this is actually the 12th time a music festival has taken place at the Whatshan Lake Retreat since 2000. Over the years, we have seen and listened to many incredible singers and acts and it is our pleasure to continue to offer this entertainment in an atmosphere that is inviting to all family and friends, young and old.

This years event promises to be even better than ever as music is not the only highlight. From relaxing with yoga classes to taking in paddle board lessons, there is something for everyone. Artisans, food vendors, a silent auction and the popular 50/50 draw will run through the weekend.

Stay tuned as we announce all the activities and artists!

Looking forward to seeing all of you!
