Summer camp is like oxygen to us at GLBC. We have the opportunity to live out our mission at warp speed, as we anticipate over 1000 campers coming to experience a day or a week of camp or even more. The experience is full of fun, friendships and faith. You will have fun with exciting games, challenging adventures and crazy dress-up meals.You will go deeper with the friends you came with and develop new friendships that last. You will be challenged in your faith, to embark on a journey with God and make it real in your own life. Are you ready?
Gardom Lake bible Camp is located south of Salmon Arm BC. It’s one and a quarter hours drive from Kelowna, and one and a half hours away from Kamloops. The Camp is owned by the Mennonite Brethren Conference of BC and is operated by the local Board of Directors. Our location on Gardom Lake, and out 72 acres, provide endless activities. It’s our goal to provide each camper with a sense of fulfilment that will encourage future growth in all aspects of their life. All children regardless of race or religion are always welcome.
What we have to offer
We have over 25 activities for your child to choose from, depending on your child’s age (some restrictions apply). Some of our more popular activities are the Adrenaline Run Zipline, Archery, BMX, Climbing Wall, High Ropes Course, Paintball, and White Water Rafting!
Your kids are going to have a blast! Not just because they get to experience our 16ft water iceberg, they could try our Stand up Paddle Boards, Canoes, Kayaks, Archery, Zipline, or any other activity. More importantly our staff are dedicated to giving them an experience, and friendship that they will remember.
