Going from Ancient Rome into the future, back to Creation and then trying to find out way back to modern day Camp Kwasind is going to be one crazy ride each and every day! Who knows where you will end up when you wake up in the morning – the only thing that is for sure, is that there will never be a dull moment at camp as you experience the fun thrill of the time travel and compete in new experiences and challenges along the way from jousting to robot building. So get ready as we fly through time, we will see encounter insights as to why are we here, what is our purpose and how is Jesus the core to the story throughout all the ages.

* Note that Sessions 2, 3 and 4 are special weeks where we will have two concurrent programs. At different times of the week parts of the program will be geared towards our younger kids at camp while another will run simultaneously for our older kids at camp. This way we can encompass all age groups in one week while ensuring the program is tailored to be age-specific.
Imagination comes to life as Camp Kwasind gets turned into a giant jungle camp! There might be lions and tigers and bears…and many more fun creatures that will come to life in this great jungle game as we try to find our way back to the Camp Kwasind we’ve always known and loved. Whether we are swinging from vines, or creating “survival shelters” or competing in crazy competitions – this undoubtedly will be a week to remember - full of laughter and adventure. So don’t miss this week where we look at how we navigate the crazy jungle of our lives as we seek to live a life that follows after Jesus and loves the amazing world that he created.

Everybody loves the circus – with food, laughter, human and pet tricks, and the big show! But what happens when something or someone really important to the show goes missing? Through the fun of the circus each and every day we will be trying to figure out the mysterious things that are happening and ensuring that the show is able to go on! And what could be better than realizing that we are each part of the Big Show, the story of God, where we get to ask about some of the mysteries and questions we have about faith.

There is no better way to end off the summer than with Teen Week! You may have heard that last year's week was packed full of fireworks, random adventures and full of laughs? Well, as usual, this year we are taking things to a whole new level! When you get a GOLDEN TICKET – it is your entrance into this crazy week of adventures with friends, more candy that we care to acknowledge, and discovering that who you are matters.
Teen Week does something really well - it takes wild themed-programming and relaxing with friends to create great memories to the next level. So whether you just chilled all summer, had to work a summer job or got to serve at camp all summer, you can all come together for one awesome end of summer bash! So while you get a ticket to encounter absolutely craziness and uncertainty, you get access to what really matters – living a life that makes a difference for others as it is rooted in hope that is found in Jesus.

Explorers has been created as a new program to encourage kids to explore and feel safe in the great outdoors! This is an introductory level out-tripping experience with highly qualified and certified trippers that will involve a basic 5-day canoe trip in which kids will learn about fire making, fun survival skills, proper canoe paddling, team/friendship building, all while also getting to dialogue about faith surrounded by the beautiful creation of rocks, trees and lakes that northern Ontario provides. The aim of this program is to get kids out of the “concrete jungle”, away from technology, and immersed in face-to-face interaction with peers and camp staff while developing a love for the outdoors and out-tripping.
We will limit the number of campers to just 10 for each week - so register early!
This is a great program if you want your child to truly unplug and gain an appreciation for camping in the outdoors.
2017 Fee: $475 / camper

If registered for two consecutive sessions, campers have the option to stayover at camp between sessions (Sat afternoon to Sunday afternoon) for an additional fee of $85. (Please note - there are no laundry privileges, so camper must bring sufficient clothing for all camp sessions.)
If registered for two consecutive sessions, campers have the option to purchase laundry services ($18) to have their clothing washed over the weekend between camp sessions.
Campers have the option of having their parents, family and friends send some short emails which will be delivered to the campers during the weekly sessions. In order to cover the cost of printing out emails, we will charge $2 per session for a maximum of 10 emails per camper.
We do ask for parents' and family discretion in sending emails to campers as it can actually trigger homesickness, not only in other campers who do not receive any mail, but also in the camper him/herself. We ask that emails are kept short, positive, without stressing how much they are missed or what they are missing at home. Focus on excitement to hear stories of all the camp activities once they get home from camp will help the camper stay focused on enjoying camp and staying connected with leaders and campmates.
We respectfully request that parents do not leave packages to be delivered to camper during the camp session as cabin leaders find that it disrupts their cabin time with campers, and also triggers homesickness in others.
If you register and pay at least the $75 non-refundable deposit by January 7, 2017, you will only be charged the 2016 camp fees!
