Camp Imadene is da bomb! I've spent two full summers there on summer staff, and a full 8 months with their Auxano discipleship program, where I met my fiancée. Imadene has given me the best memories from being out on the waterfront, hanging out with friends, and most importantly seeing how it positively impacts thousands of kids every summer. Thanks for everything you do Camp Imadene!

Camp Imadene is the place to be! I spend 4 weeks in a row here last summer because I intentionally planned to stay for as long as I could after coming for the first time just last year! The people there are amazing, and it's amazing to be able to talk to anyone there and feel totally comfortable about it. It is such an awesome and welcoming community. And the year-round staff there do a brilliant job of making the activities and program something to remember. And of course, the property itself, is amazing. You get to wake up every morning to the beautiful mountain across the shining lake, and have the sun shine across the entire property as it rises. I will definitely be going back next year for even longer.

Our first year sending our 2 oldest kids. The experience that my kids had and what we experienced as parents was without a doubt incredible. They went above and beyond to help our son with some challenges. They came home completely changed kids! They came home with direction, changed attitudes, and hope for what is to come. Thank you!!!

We had a a great experience at Camp Imadene this past summer! It was our first time there and we were so impressed! We have decided that it is going to be an annual thing for us to go to family camp. :)

Camp Imadene has one of the most outstanding locations for summer programming I have ever seen. The lake is the best swimming lake around. The setting by the mountain is spectacular. The playing fields and surrounding grounds are well thought out and well maintained. And then, add to that a consistent intention by all the paid and volunteer staff to provide the best week ever to each camper - and that is a winning combination! My kids both rave about their experiences there - and I have enjoyed being connected as a volunteer too!

Camp Imadene is home to many.
The amazing scenery from the moment you come around the bend on South Shore road is just the beginning... the warm staff and volunteers will make you feel welcome as soon as you step on property. The accommodations are clean and comfortable, and the food is delicious. During the summer, there is a variety of programming for campers, from archery to BMX biking to climbing the rock wall, or swimming and going on the inflatables, whether off the blob tower or behind a speedboat. Camp Imadene is an incredible place to build relationships with fellow campers and with staff, and for an introduction to faith-based values with talented speakers who teach well-rounded Christian messages each week.
All this to say, Camp Imadene is an opportunity for your kids that you will not want to miss!
