MacKenzie Camp – serving kids in the Okanagan since 1947

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.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Campers and other friends of MacKenzie Camp,

Like you, we are trying to keep up with COVID-19. Regulations and recommendations to suppress its spread are sure to keep changing in the weeks and months to come. Rest assured that our actions will fully comply with all directions that the appropriate authorities provide. Our first priority is to keep campers, staff, and volunteers safe.

Currently, we anticipate that MacKenzie Camp’s summer programs will go on as planned. So …

  • Are you hoping to go to camp this summer? Do it! Register online for any of our 10 summer camps. Camperships are available. The Early Bird Discount is now available until May 31st. We guarantee you a FULL REFUND if we have to cancel. (Note: the number of campers allowed in each camp may have to be reduced.)
  • Are you hoping to work at camp this summer? Do it! We are extending our application deadlines for Core Staff and counsellors. We fully understand that your commitment may not be air-tight. It would be wise to apply to multiple employers in case camp is cancelled, or staffing is reduced.
  • Are you hoping to volunteer at MacKenzie Camp? Do that too! Regulations permitting, we will be organizing a Camp Clean-Up in the month of May. Kitchen and program volunteers for summer camps are always welcome – there is no camp without them! Click here for the application form.

For the here and now, you may need some suggestions for kids’ activities. Click here for 70 ideas from Green Bay Bible Camp.

As we have learned these past few weeks, things may change at short notice. Watch for MacKenzie Camp updates on email, website, and Facebook.

God bless!

Your MacKenzie Camp
