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.
Dear Campers and other friends of MacKenzie Camp,
COVID-19 is bringing hardship and tragedy to so many. What a blessing to live in a place that, by and large, has still escaped the worst of it. How grateful we are to all the people whose daily toil keeps our lives at least “semi-normal.”
MacKenzie Camp is going to do its bit this summer, too. We intend to run programming for kids and youth, although the likelihood is growing that we will provide camping alternatives that can occur in the home and not at Mabel Lake. That would require a staff team quite different in number and in its skill set than what we have been looking for in the past. We have removed the link to the registration platform for our youth summer program for now. The registration platform for the adult Quilting retreat in September is still available.
Remember, all camp registrations are guaranteed a full refund.
Our programming will fully comply with the requirements set by the Interior Health Authority and other appropriate bodies. In mid-May, the board will make a final decision about summer programming. Please stand by for future announcements.
Your MacKenzie Camp
