About Camp Kadesh

More than just a great summer camp on one of the best lakes in Saskatchewan.  We are people that care about inspiring youth to live better lives. We are a second home. We hold the value of relationship as the foundation of why we do things and continue to build on that base to help kids explore who they are and are created to be.   First opened in 1982 with summer camps, we now have programming in Spring, Summer, and Winter.  Click here for more information about our Outdoor Recreation Programs

In all seasons we seek to create new and exciting learning experiences, always staying focused on people. We are a Christian camp that believes that God seeks relationship with all people and He challenges people to build a better world.  We want to challenge youth to be world changers too!  Taking advantage of our excellent location on Christopher Lake we have developed a balance of traditional camp feel with new adventure based learning.  We have one of the best camp water-sports programs in Saskatchewan and we work for top quality programming in all areas. 

We encourage youth expand who they are by learning new skills. We challenge everyone to push their comfort level by taking on a new adventures.

The Connection exists to bridge the gap between camps and youth groups in Saskatchewan.  We know that you probably had an incredible experience at camp this summer and we want you to continue this experience by getting plugged in to a church in Saskatoon. The Connection runs every Tuesday throughout the summer.  We get together to hang out, eat awesome snacks, play games, worship God through music and continue to learn about Him from great youth pastors and camp speakers.  If you want to continue your camp experience after camp is over, The Connection is what you're looking for!
