All camps are open to both boys and girls. Registration includes a non-refundable cancellation fee of $50. Registration closes two days prior to specified start date. A $20 discount applies when you register a second member of the family.

You can also volunteer your time and skills and earn a discount on your camper’s registration fees. Download the Volunteer Application Form.

MacKenzie Camp offers a 3-tier fee structure. The Tier 1 fee is for families who wish to help cover the “hidden costs” of great camping, especially maintenance and administration. Tier 2 is the actual cost per camper of 4-5 days of programming and meals. Tier 3 is a reduced fee that we can offer (no questions asked!) thanks to donors who want as many kids as possible to experience camping.

Here’s a list of what (and what not) to bring.
