Make Friends. Have Fun. Learn about God.

We are a non-profit, non-denominational Christian Bible summer camp located at Lanark, Ontario. We have been running since 1948, offering week-long summer camp sessions for boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 16, including our traditional program and our camper-in-leadership-development program.

Our mission is to help children, youth, and staff put Christ first in every aspect of life, to nurture healthy relationships, and to develop a positive self-image…all while discovering the outdoors, participating in a large selection of active and creative activities, and having an exciting experience through our bible-based camp.
