Mackenzie Camp ~ Home Page

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, we have been sharing our 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! Our awesome staff, chaplains, and volunteers make it a welcoming and wondrous place, regardless of denomination. MacKenzie is a camp and retreat centre of the United Church of Canada.

A week at Mackenzie Camp includes using the climbing wall, low ropes course, and our new and improved archery range for a variety of activities. We go swimming at our lake front every afternoon and we even go out on the canoes and kayaks once a week. In addition, our craft hall is used for arts and crafts, tie dye, and our week-end dance where campers and staff get to dress up in silly costumes to celebrate their week of camp.

Every day the campers eat the most delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 2 snacks provided by our amazing camp cook. As the day comes to an end, we play a wide game with all of the campers together, then sit at the campfire singing crazy songs. We end off the days activities in the vespers circle where we reflect on the day, then it’s off to bed in our beautiful rustic cabins. (most of them even have newly installed lights!)
