About this camp

highlights

Camp Artaban has been providing Christian Camping since 1923. Located on Gambier Island, Artaban is described as “awesome” by youth and “paradise” by adults. Less than one third of its scenic setting is used for accommodation and activity, leaving 47 pristine acres, and access to hundreds of acres of crown land for natural exploration, outdoor adventure and all levels of hiking. This ideal wilderness experience is just a 30 minute boat ride from Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver.

The Next Generation

As a kid, camp was the most important week of my summer. I wasn't a sporty, outdoorsy kid. I probably would never have been to a summer camp if it hasn't been for Camp Artaban having a fine arts camp. Camp is a special place for a lot of people and the diverse camps offered provided people of all ages and interests an opportunity to have a camp experience.

It's hard not to fall in love with camp. It's beautiful and exciting with so much to do and so many wonderful people. I love the history. I love the spiritual connection I feel when I set foot on camp grounds, but especially in the chapel. At camp I feel loved and supported. I made lifelong friends and had experiences I never dreamed I would have. It's hard to put into words because the thing I love the most is the way I feel when I'm there or when I think about being there. I want nothing more than for my daughter to get to experience the same thing. The first time I took her up with me to visit for the day I felt like I was going to burst from excitement. She has been up twice, just for the day, and I love the way her little eyes take everything in. I can tell she feels that it is a special place just from those short visits. I can't wait until I am able to get her up to an actual camp to get the real experience. I just know she'll love it as much as I do.


Indescribable Feeling

"There is just something about this place..."


Grateful for help

"One summer I needed help to send 3 children to camp. Everlastingly grateful to those who set up and continue to donate to camperships."


Best Week Ever

"My sons had a blast; they wanted to stay and send me home."

"This has been the best week of my life."

"I can't wait to come back next year!"
