Youth & Family Experiences

Overview

Family Getaways

Imagine a welcoming atmosphere, delicious food, fun recreational activities, helpful staff, all while enjoying the great outdoors. No meals to cook (we have those covered), no pressure from work or digital distractions—just time to invest in yourself, family fun, and relationships. IAWAH offers long weekend retreats that help families connect, renew relationships, and simply relax. Each experience includes lively worship, challenging Christian teaching, and children’s programming. In the afternoon, enjoy recreational activities and free time to do as much, or as little as you like.

Family Experiences are available during the Thanksgiving, Canada Day, and February Family Day long weekends. However, family experiences have been canceled for 2021 due to continued uncertainty around the roll-out of the reopening of Ontario.

Unique Youth Experiences

Toque Youth Group Retreats are fun and engaging winter weekends designed for church leaders to bring their junior or senior high youth groups. We provide a resource team and fully coordinated experience—that allows youth and their leaders to focus on building relationships. Enjoy engaging worship, relevant teaching, and crazy wide games and activities.

Organization

IAWAH was founded in 1956 as a non-denominational summer camp. The not-for-profit organization is governed by the Corporation of IAWAH Christian Ministries — a dedicated group of people who voluntarily serve as stewards of the ministry. A Board of Directors is selected to provide leadership to the Executive Director, within the framework of policy governance. Additionally, there is a small year-round staff team supported by over 150 seasonal staff and volunteers, all of who are carefully vetted and chosen to help facilitate the growth of each participant and guest.

“We were able to get away from the stress of life and really felt at peace.”
