About Us


Camp Cherith – Lanark is a non-profit, non-denominational, co-ed Christian camping program for boys and girls age 8 to 16. We are affiliated with the Pioneer Clubs mid-week children’s program.

Our purpose is to provide a Christ-centred, Bible based outdoor program that results in:

  • growth in a camper’s life through the development of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical skills in group living experiences.
  • an appreciation of God’s creation in the outdoors.
  • a spiritual understanding of what it means to have Christ “in every aspect of life”.

Camp Cherith – Lanark gives campers an experience of living out of doors, making new friends and learning and developing new skills. Campers choose elective skills-based activities, and also participate in: Bible Exploration small group studies, Morning Watch personal devotions, group games, campfires, singing, and many other activities.

But wait, there’s more!

Did you know that we are one of many “Cherith” camps across Canada and the United States? Our closest neighbour is Camp Cherith – Ontario in Walkerton! Each Camp Cherith runs in its own unique way, but all share the same vision, mission statements, and underlying philosophy.
