Making memories and changing lives through the support of generous donors like you.
WE’VE ALREADY COME SO FAR
The story of camp is an inspiring one of deeply committed donors, volunteers and staff working together to fulfill the mission of Camp Kahquah. Every year, as children, students and adults experience the fun-filled activities of camp and the beauty of Ahmic Lake, they have also been drawn deeper into their relationship with Jesus Christ – the heart of our mission. Memories have been made and lives have been changed.
As we look to the future we want to continue to build on this incredible legacy to ensure many more years of ministry through camp. In order to do this we need to improve our building facilities.
We invite you to join us in this exciting adventure!
Camp Kahquah was established in 1962 by a small group of people with a big dream – they wanted to build a Christian children’s camp. And through their hard work and thousands of volunteer hours they did it.
What began as a grassroots initiative has flourished into a year round camp and retreat centre serving hundreds of people of all ages and stages of life.
We are grateful to those who founded the camp, and to the Be In Christ Church of Canada who has continued to support the camp over the last 60 years of its incredible legacy.
OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE
Over the last 60 years there have been many improvements to the camp. We celebrate all the hard work that has gone into maintaining and developing the property, renovating the buildings, and adding new buildings. All of this time and effort has helped Kahquah be the ministry it is today. As we look to the near future, it is our goal to continue on this path of improving our facilities so they can be used to their fullest potential.
Upper Lodge Renovation
Renovate the upper lodge and convert the existing 10 bedrooms that share two common washrooms into eight bedrooms that have a private bathroom in each.
Main Floor Lodge Renovation
- Renovate bathrooms to have one accessible washroom and two universal washrooms
- Install new flooring, new windows, doors, and insulation
High Ropes Expansion
Expand the high ropes course to include two additional elements, allowing multiple campers to access the ropes course simultaneously.
We have already raised $275,000 of our $500,000 goal.
Together we know we can make it the rest of the way.DONATE
Countless lives have been changed through experiences at Kahquah. Let’s keep that legacy going strong.
“Camp Kahquah will always be my favourite place on earth. It isn’t until I meet others my age who never had the opportunity to go to camp that I understand just how lucky I was to grow up attending Kahquah. It is hard to put into words the impact of camp, because I can hardly think of an area of my life it left untouched. Camp is where I developed a genuine and personal relationship with God. It is where I wrestled with and deepened that relationship every summer at Kahquah no matter what that year had thrown at me. Camp is also where I developed some of the most meaningful relationships in my life. It is where I grew up, in every sense of the word.
I had the opportunity to visit camp for a few days during kids camp this summer. The same excitement filled the air during camp-wide game. The same presence of God was so prevalent as kids sang in the chapel sessions. But it wasn’t the same camp I remembered. Now, the staff leading those skits and songs, hiding in the bushes and dancing during chapel were the kids that not so long ago I was watching experience camp for the first time. Camp has a legacy that spans generations. Every year a new group of campers will step foot at Camp Kahquah for the first time, and new memories will be made and lives will be changed. For most, camp is just a phase of life— but it teaches kids a way of life, how to follow Jesus and how to live in community. And I am grateful everyday for the legacy of Camp Kahquah.”
