Camp Activities
Living into the Vision

Prior to growing Nawakwa through this land acquisition, Nawakwa was a 115-acre site with its buildings clustered closely together and in close proximity to the camp's eastern border.

Nawakwa has been transformed into a camp with room to roam, space to expand ministry, and ability to add new facilities to support an expanded ministry. Nawakwa is now protected for future generations as a place apart, free from encroachment and the impact of development on the camp's border.

The impact has been significant:​
Summer campers and year-round retreat guests have new terrain to explore.

New wilderness campsites are established along the expanded trail system.

Previously inaccessible streams and meadows welcome excited children and curious adults exploring and learning about the wonder of God’s creation.

25 acres of degraded agricultural land have been reclaimed for productive wildlife habitat.

A high ropes course has been installed.
