We were able to get away from the stress of life – and really felt at peace.
Youth & Family Experiences
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.
This is one of the very few places where folks with very different faith traditions come together.
Thank God for IAWAH – Our lives will be changed forever. We will always consider ourselves a part of the family at IAWAH.
Where will our family stay?
Families have a choice of the use of the rooms in our winterized lodges or staying in cabins. Some of the winterized lodge accommodations have centrally located washrooms (Derbyshire & IAWAH Lodges) while others are ensuite (Bush Lodge & C.W. Leach Complex).
What do families need to bring?
Bedding, pillows and towels, books, Bible, notebook, pen, board games, indoor shoes, toiletries, small first aid kit, flashlight. Winter: warm outdoor clothing, extra mitts, skates, hockey sticks and helmets, sleds Summer/Fall: outdoor clothing, lawn chairs and beach toys.
Can IAWAH accommodate dietary restrictions?
If you have a dietary restriction or food allergies, be sure to inform the Registrar at the time of registration. IAWAH accommodates the following on a regular basis: vegetarian (please indicate type), vegan, lactose or gluten intolerance, and food allergies.
What are you accommodations like?
IAWAH is a very clean and well-maintained camp – but it is a camp. Most rooms have two to three bunk-beds with vinyl-covered, cot-sized, 4-6-inch foam mattresses. Beds marked as doubles are two of these mattresses side-by-side. Cabins—used in the warm seasons only—have washrooms located in another building a short walk away. Washrooms in our winterized lodges are either centrally located (Derbyshire & IAWAH Lodges) or ensuite (Bush Lodge). All washrooms have hot showers, toilets and sinks. Both cabins and lodges have electricity.
How can I get more involved?
If you are looking to become a more involved participant in our Family Experiences here are a few available opportunities: Preaching, Worship, Kid’s Ministry and MC’ing. Please contact our Camping Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org for more details about these roles and for what retreats we may still be in need.
