Wondering about a present for a favourite youngster? How about something to last a lifetime – a Gift Certificate to MacKenzie Camp! Download the Christmas Campership Gift  form, complete it, and mail it back to us at MacKenzie Camp, PO Box 133, Armstrong, BC V0E 1B0. We’ll supply you with a colourful certificate to tuck under that someone’s Christmas Tree.
Don’t have anyone special in mind? We’ll put your donation in the MacKenzie Campership Fund, find a camper candidate this summer, and send you a receipt for your charitable donation.

Our camps observe all health regulations and standards set by provincial health authorities and the BC Camping Association. So (God forbid) things may change!  Registration fees will be fully refunded if COVID-19 prevents a youngster from attending camp, or cancels your camp of choice.

ALL CAMPS at MacKenzie are open to every gender and offer a great range of activities: canoeing on Mabel Lake, climbing wall, archery, low-ropes challenge course, crafts, wide games, hiking, and swimming. Come form friendships that will last a lifetime!
