People often ask what we think makes Camp Kadesh a great camp. Why do so many kids want to come back summer after summer?
It's with mixed emotions that we announce that Chris Oldham is moving on from Camp Kadesh to become the new Executive Director of Hidden Acres Camp in New Hamburg, Ontario. Chris and his family have been a big part of Kadesh for three years. Chris started as Associate Director and was instrumental in the growth of our programming, so much so that we split his position into two roles. Chris has worked as our OREC & Retreats Director since Jan 2018 and is now ready to step into this next adventure of leadership. Chris will finish up the Spring OREC season and start his new position in July. We wish Chris God's blessing in this new role. Way to go Chris!
With that in mind we now looking to hire a new Outdoor Recreation and Retreats Director.
We keep getting asked if we’re going to build more cabins to fit in more campers. It’s a good question.
The Outdoor Recreation (OREC) program at Camp Kadesh has become the most popular destination for Saskatchewan schools. One of the primary reasons that our program has become so popular is the excellent programming that is carried out by our amazing staff. This year we have staff from literally across the country; BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario (and one from South Korea) are all represented in our mighty crew. Below are the individuals that make up our spring team*.
These individuals come from a wide variety of backgrounds, are pursuing diverse fields of education and have come together to help make these 8 weeks of the Spring Outdoor Recreation Program be great.
Fees alone do not actually cover the full cost of paying these great students. As a registered charity and nonprofit organization, you can help us pay these students by being part of our 1K for Kadesh initiative. Your $10 a month can help these students pay for school after spending spring serving the students of Saskatchewan.
