All visitors and campers are asked to check in at the office when they first arrive at camp. Our friendly staff are ready to help you find your campsite and answer any questions you may have. Ice and freezer space are available to rent, camp clothing and other merchandise is available for sale, and several lawn games (bocce ball, spikeball, etc.) are available for sign-out as well. Payments can be made via cash, cheque, debit, or credit. A nearby bulletin board is updated with current fireban conditions.
Mishewah has two washroom houses with private shower stalls, for men and women, located next to the dining hall and near the end of the cabin line. We also have a pair of small private washrooms without showers located near family camp, behind the Lakeside Suites. Our maintenance team cleans and restocks the washrooms daily.
The Chapel sits at the heart of Camp Mishewah. Daily chapel services give us a chance to sing, dance, and learn from the Bible together. The chapel can also be used as a recreational space where a wooden Gaga Ball Pit can be set up.
Our kitchen team works hard to provide delicious and healthy meals for our campers. Meals can be bought in the dining hall during our family camp weeks. For youth camps, please be sure to give complete details in the Health & Medical Form and send any necessary substitutions along. We are unable to provide gluten or dairy free products, but will work with what campers supply to be sure they are cared for according to their needs.
Camp Mishewah does not claim to be a nut/peanut free environment as we do not monitor private campsites and guests that camp there. Additionally, some of our ice cream flavours in the café contain nuts. We do, however, keep nuts and peanuts out of the kitchen.
Originally a dorm, the café was then used as the chapel for decades. Now, connections are made and fun is had as we scoop ice cream and host great conversations and games during the evenings at Family Camp and Sr. Teen. Training sessions and kids programming also take place in this cozy space.
Field games are a staple of mornings at kids camp, and family baseball is a longstanding Family Camp tradition. The field includes a baseball backstop, soccer goalposts, and lots of space to run and play.
Great for a game of basketball or ball hockey, the sports pad is available and used often by campers. We ask that campers refrain from playing basketball until 8 am at the earliest
With soft sand right down by the beach, the volleyball court is a great place for a quick pickup game or a tournament.
The playground (for kids 8 and under), is located next to the family camp area, and is a great place for parents to come and sit, while the kids climb, slide, and play.
Our main firepit, on the beach, is a favourite spot for all ages. Crazy campfire songs, times of worship, fun skits, and heartfelt stories make it an ideal place to end your day. A smaller firepit is located lakeside next to the family camping area, for times when the main firepit is in use by programmed camps. S’mores welcome!
