Campfires

Campfires are fires for cooking, warmth, or ceremonial purposes. Campfires are not for burning toxic materials, garbage, construction waste, demolition waste, or garden refuse. A campfire is typically used as a wiener or marshmallow roast fire. They are also smaller in size, typically not more than 3 feet across at the base.

Campfires are allowed year round within the District of Sechelt and the Sechelt Indian Government District unless the Fire Department issues a total burn ban. A burn ban is likely over the summer months, but some years, when the weather is wetter, campfires are not banned. The Fire Department enforces campfires by banning them when necessary, and by responding to reports of illegal and/or dangerous campfires.

Burning Regulations

Campfires are permitted
