Summer Camp

CAMP 2014 – Please read the info below to better understand the awesome opportunity your teenager or child could have by attending our summer camp. Info for 2014 summer camp will be posted shortly. 

For 40 years, our Church has held an annual Summer Camp for children and youth from ages 7 to 16.  Although the name of our church itself has changed (from Saalem Church to Bayview Family Church), 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’!

So once again, Saalem Camp (or really, Bayview Family Church Camp) will be held at Camp Kwasind, located in the heart of Muskoka, from August 18-24, 2013. This campsite 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.

Our 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 Camp 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.

Ask anyone who has been and they’ll all tell you the same thing: It’s the best week of summer!


2013 Camp Feedback

As our week of our Bayview Family Church camp is over, we would love to hear back from you the parents, as to how your child’s week at camp was. Please take a few minutes to just respond (it should take less than 5 minutes), as we are always looking at ways of making camp a better experience for the kids. We look forward to your response.
