Summer Camps: WilderNess

WilderNess is located on Little Ness Lake (just 3 km from our main site). It offers a back-to-the-basics camping experience operating with no running water and no electricity. With an emphasis the outdoors campers can expect to do hands on activities that include cooking a few of their own meals over a fire, building rafts, wide games and nature hikes. Other elements include our Tarzan swing, tree climbing and the favorite zipline which begins in a platform in a tree and ends 400' in the lake.

Activities include:

  • orienteering
  • archery
  • kayaking
  • wood burning
  • fire & foods
  • survival

Enrollment is limited to 40 campers per session. Because of our small staff to camper ratio campers will have lots of time to build relationships with friends, leaders and the speaker.

Summer Camps: Work Crew

Work is a special ‘camp within a camp’ designed for teens who have completed Gr. 9 and up. Three senior volunteers are assigned as Work Crew Bosses and provide 24 hour supervision, leadership and spiritual development. Because sessions are two to three weeks long, participants can build deep, lasting friendships.

Skill Development - Work Crew places an emphasis on teaching life skills and leadership training.

Work Experience - Work Crew members work hard during camp. Cleaning dishes (750 place settings daily!), toilets, sinks, and floors takes up a huge part of every day. In addition, you will enjoy tubing, sand volleyball, rock climbing, laughter, spontaneous fun, and lots more. A certificate of completion will be issued at the end of Work Crew, and can be a significant asset in applying for your first job. Work Crew grads are also given preference for future summer staff.

History

Established in 1953, Ness Lake Bible Camp offers a Christ centred program based on the Bible, physical activities, and social activities geared for education and fun. It's a place where young and old can allegedly find salvation, grow in faith and learn about Christ.

The Camp is operated on a nonprofit basis by Canadian Sunday School Mission (CSSM) Ministries. This interdenominational-national mission organization owns many camps across Canada. Ness Lake Bible Camp is operated locally by a dedicated group of people vitally interested in this work. The facilities at Ness Lake have been developed by the voluntary gifts and labours of many people who are interested in sharing their faith in Christ.
