MacKenzie Camp – serving kids in the Okanagan since 1947

From Autumn to Winter

A great big crew (nearly 30!) put MacKenzie Camp “to bed” for the winter on September 30th. After a summer of action, all is quiet … but not so for camp supporters. Preparation for our 2018 program is already on the go.

We need to get a Camp Director lined up for 2018. School teachers and Parent Advisory Councils across districts 83 and 22 are considering their options for end-of-term celebrations next May or June. We want MacKenzie Camp to be at the top of their list. A board retreat on November 4th will ponder many of the ways to improve our programming, hiring – and how to get a new roof on Alice Large Lodge. (Got a suggestion or issue for us to think over? Please drop us a line.)

Fundraising is never far from our minds, either. MacKenzie does its utmost to ensure that financial difficulties never separate kids from camping. That makes community fundraising essential – donations from people who feel the same way about kids and camping as we do. Keep an eye peeled for an upcoming announcement about our Fall Dinner and Silent Auction.
