Camp Cherith’s rich and diverse outdoor activities help campers aged 6 – 17 gain self confidence, develop leadership skills and grow socially and spiritually. Our Christian environment is an intentional integration of Biblical values and activity.
Customized programs are taught by positive role models in a small group fun atmosphere.
Shawn and Keith have been involved in camping for almost 50 years. Shawn statred at Camp Cherith as a camper and has been active in all areas of camp life. Keith spent his summers at a camp near Haliburton. He was involved as a camper, staff, senior staff, out trip director and as a Board member.
Keith has a background in Recreation and Outdoor Education and Shawn has a background in Special Education.
They have 3 married daughters who are all active in camp.
We recognize that choosing a summer camp is an important decision. We will be delighted to answer any questions you may have regarding the uniqueness of Cherith camping.
I had the best time ever at camp serving as a cabin leader. Not only was I able to grow spiritually by spending more time with God, I also learned to love the kids in my cabins. They really taught me a lot. A lot of the questions they asked me really provoked my thoughts and made me think. I will definitely treasure that precious month I spent in camp. School is really tiring and I really miss camp, I am in my senior year and I will be graduating this year.
Camp Cherith truly is a great place for campers and staff to develop their private relationships with God. I would like to return for about 1 to 3 weeks next summer if you will accept me as a cabin leader again.
Sincerely yours, Steve
"Camp Cherith, you both, and the many, many incredible people that have spent their summers there, have been responsible for changing all three of our children's lives for eternity. There are so few leaders, to our knowledge, that are willing to lead with uncompromisingly high standards. From what we hear from our boys you are just such leaders. We thank God for you."
"When we picked up our daughter she had a smile from ear to ear, stories to share and songs to sing. She asked me if she could come back again. I think that explains it all since this was her first experience at a sleepover camp."
"Not only was my daughter happy at camp again, I was pleased with how each and every question I asked was quickly and adequately answered. The staff are consistently 'kid friendly', positive and seem to love their service at camp."
