Big Cove YMCA Camp is located off the Trans Canada Highway 104, east of New Glasgow. Take exit 27 off of the 104. Turn left onto NS-4 Trunk W (signs for Nova Scotia 4 Trunk W/Pine Tree/Little Harbour/Melmerby Beach) 300 metres. The Big Cove Road is the first road on the right; follow that road all the way to the main camp. Please drive slowly and carefully on the camp road because of a railroad crossing and other cars.
