Camp Cherith – Lanark provides a unique and fun camping experience for children and youth in the Ottawa Valley, Ontario! But we can’t go it alone. We’re affiliated with these organizations:
Pioneer Clubs is a mid-week children’s program in use by thousands of churches across North America. Geared for ages 2-12, Pioneer Clubs integrate spiritual and personal development to help boys and girls build healthy relationships with caring Christian adults, their peers, and Jesus Christ.
Camp Cherith is the summer camping ministry of Pioneer Clubs. We are just one of many “Cherith” camps in North America. The name “Cherith” comes from 1 Kings 17:1-6; it’s the name of the brook which the Lord sent the prophet Elijah to for nourishment.
We are a member of the Ontario Camps Association. OCA promotes children and youth camping in Ontario, and establishes high standards of practice for member camps. OCA accredited camps (like us) voluntarily adhere to over 400 separate standards dealing with all aspects of a camp’s operation from health and safety to programming and administration.
We are a member of the Christian Camp and Conference Association in Canada. CCI/CANADA represents organizations providing camp and conference facilities and programs in keeping with Biblical values for children, youth and adults. They champion the Christian camping experience, and provide resources to develop and equip leaders in member organizations.
