Bayview Family Church Camp is awesome and it’s happening again this August in beautiful Muskoka. It runs August 17-23, 2014 (held on the grounds of Camp Kwasind) and is guaranteed to be the best week of your kids summer!
For 40 years, our church has held an annual Summer Camp for children and youth from ages 7 to 16 (You might remember it as Saalem Camp, but we’ve changed the name so it matches Bayview Family Church). Although some things have changed over the 40 years, we still have the exact same passionate focus and belief; that children and youth are of utmost importance to God and to His church – or ‘to us’!
The campsite at Camp Kwasind has a beautiful lakefront, and lots of open space to enjoy. Kwasind’s location provides a naturally beautiful and safe camp setting to enjoy what God has created.
This Summer Camp offers a dynamic week of various activities, including sports, swimming, sauna, arts and crafts, sing-a-long, bible studies, skits and bonfires, held in the heart of Muskoka. This is all presented in an age appropriate fashion to campers, which are divided into age groups, conducted by dedicated and experienced counselors under the guidance of Activity Directors and the Camp Director. Campers’ health and safety are looked after by experienced Registered Nurses and certified Life Guards. Food will be provided by a reputable catering company, to ensure your child receives tasty and nutritional meals. A tuck shop is available so campers have the opportunity to purchase various snacks and treats.
Ask anyone who has been and they’ll all tell you the same thing: It’s the best week of summer!
