Our donors regularly make it possible for 80-90 children and youth to go to summer camp. Thank you! What a difference that made to each of their lives! Other things that donations help us with are:

  • leadership training costs
  • upgrades to the water system, buildings, canoe platform, and “bridge”
  • fly fishing and other sports equipment

Every little bit helps! But we extend special thanks to seven major donors:

In support of the 2024 Golf Tournament, Bobcat of Vernon has stepped up with a donation of $2500. This gives a tremendous boost to our efforts to build a Campership Fund that can reduce or eliminate the costs of camp for dozens of campers every summer. Thank you, Bobcat of Vernon!

100 men who give a damn logoIn February 2019, the 100 Men Who Give a Damn in Vernon, BC chose MacKenzie Camp as the recipient of their quarterly donation – $9,900! It helped us put a new roof on Alice Large Lodge – just in time for a very snowy winter. Thank you, 100 Men!

Cobs Bread LogoEvery Thursday in July and August Cobs Bread, Vernon donates two BIG containers of bread to MacKenzie Camp. We get the benefit of delicious breads, buns, scones, Danishes – you name it. It tastes great, and saves Camp a bundle! Thank you, Cobs Bread!

The United Church of Canada Foundation, Trinity United (Vernon), First United (Salmon Arm), St. Andrew’s and Zion United Churches (Enderby and Armstrong) and their members have supported camp with donations of money and labour – in some cases, for generations. Pacific Mountain Region of the United Church of Canada has become the insurer of camp property – a HUGE relief in this day and age. Thank you, United Church and churches!

Enderby and District Financial has been a terrific participant in the annual MacKenzie Camp Golf Tournament, sending teams of eight or even twelve golfers and raising thousands of dollars. Thank you, Credit Union!
