The Kingfisher site includes a collection of classrooms and meeting areas, a kitchen building, sleeping cabins, and a washroom facility. There is a gravel driveway of approximately 500 m that leads to the facility. There is no road access to the sleeping cabins. Students and weekend users must carry their belongings a short distance to these cabins.
The camp is designed to accommodate school children attending day trips and residential programs. Consequently, the buildings and furnishings are rustic and simple. All buildings are electrically heated and have overhead lighting. There is an electrical outlet in each cabin. Washroom building and kitchen/science building are the only buildings with running water. Both the washroom and kitchen have designated drinking taps.
