MacKenzie Camp is a summer kids’ camp on beautiful Mabel Lake, 35 km east of Enderby, B.C. Since 1947, it has been sharing love of Creation and hope for the future with thousands of children and youth from the Shuswap, the Okanagan Valley, and around the world. Adults too! Awesome staff, chaplains, and volunteers make it a welcoming and wonderous place, regardless of denomination. MacKenzie is a Camp and Retreat Centre of the United Church of Canada.
