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.

Camp Clean-Up

Saturday, April 27 is the day we “wake up” MacKenzie Camp for the 2019 camping season. We’ll open doors, sweep floors, turn on taps, mow the grass, and roll out canoes, mattresses, and PFDs. The Clean Up will occur 9:30 am -3:30 pm. Lunch is provided. No equipment necessary – but remember, it may be wet and cold in the morning. Come lend a hand! Need a ride that morning? Email us!

A Big Win for Camp

Vernon’s “100 Men Who Give a Damn” meet every four months and decide which local charity should receive $100 from each of them. Do the math … 100 x $100 equals $10,000. In February, they selected our own MacKenzie Camp! Hooray! It will all go toward putting a new roof on Alice this fall! Thank you, 100 Men!  Watch the video of the “hand-over.”
