Five Tabins are nestled into the pine forest near Chapel Point. They are perfect for a small group of families, or they can be booked individually. A Tabin (tent-cabin) is a solid wood building, with screened sides which gives you that special feeling of being in the great outdoors, with the added security of a roof. Canvas blinds can be rolled down to provide more weather protection, shade or privacy. Each Tabin has six single beds built-in, with electricity, a picnic table and a firepit & grill. Central washrooms, with showers, are located a short walk away in the gymnasium.

Each tent site is equipped with folding camping cots, indoor lighting and access to electricity. Near each tent is a picnic table and fire pit with grill. Central washrooms and showers are a short walk away.

Summer premium rates for Friday & Saturday: $40/night +HST*
Looking for a remote experience, and you want to explore more of IAWAH’s rugged wilderness? Enjoy one of the newly developed backcountry sites on Wolfe Lake. Park your vehicle and hike, or canoe, a short distance to get away from it all. Each site provides great views, a designated fire pit, tenting areas, and a thunderbox toilet. Campers provide all their own camping gear and great stories for around the campfire. Contact the office for more info and for specific site locations.
Guests bring their own food and cooking equipment and use the firepit & grill assigned to their site. IAWAH provides matresses in the Cabins & Tabins, and single camping cots for the Tents. Guests are responsible for bringing their own bedding and linens. We recommend a sleeping bag and pillow, but sheets and a blanket work quite well too. Come packed for the seasonal weather and overnight camping temperatures (Cabins, Tabins and Tents are not equipped with heating).
*Summer premium rates for Friday & Saturday applies to all campsite bookings in the prime season of July 1 – September 6, 2021

Your staff is all gracious, helpful and joyful. It’s a winning combination.
I really learned a lot about myself and others by serving in different roles. I enjoyed every minute of camp this summer, and loved working there.
The staff showed love for the campers, while bringing a positive spiritual experience.
CREW changed my life for the better and it came at just the right time to help me through a dark place.
It is increasingly complicated for young people to grow up today....deeply rooted
Jeff Friesen, Executive Director
We have a vision to grow deeply-rooted followers of Jesus who are equipped for God’s harvest – Wherever they are planted.
The young people who staff this place are wonderful. They are gracious and serious in their service of campers – and also, quite the riot when the occasion calls for it.
My eyes have been opened to what seems to be an emerging distinctive of our ministry – leadership development...God has given IAWAH an incredible opportunity to raise up leaders.
Tim Edwards, former Director
Thank you for the tremendous job you have done in cultivating an atmosphere at camp where young people can hear the voice of God.
From the moment of arrival we were made to feel most welcome.
