    Hills of Peace Youth Camp staff urgently needed

Canada West Mission is in need of adult volunteers to be on staff at CWM Youth Camp (July 1 – 6) and Junior Camp (July 14-18). If we do not have sufficient staff, we will need to turn campers away. Junior Camp has reached capacity for boy’s registration and we now have a waiting list.

I would ask you to give serious consideration to this need. CWM camping programs are an important part of our ministry and they are flourishing. The majority of the youth we see at camp do not attend church on Sunday mornings but they come to camp and bring friends with them.

For further information, please contact Lisa Neudorf


Samish Camp Mungai-Camp Staff and Cook neededimage

Camp Mungai, Junior Camp ages 8-11 years old, is looking for counselors for August 12-16 this summer, especially male counselors.  If you are a registered youth worker, love kids, and want to spend more time in paradise (Samish Island)  please contact Christine Campbell,

I, Debra Donohue, was a counselor at Camp Mungai last year and it was one of the highlights of my summer.

Thanks for supporting our camping program!


Camp Mungai is also looking for a cook this year, could it be you?  Contact Christine Campbell,

Registration for Canada West Mission

Events is now open!

Community of Christ Canada (Canada East Mission and Canada West Mission) has contracted with CampSite, a camping and events management platform, in order to provide members and friends with a more modern online registration process for camps, retreats, and events.

This new platform will allow you to create a user account which will securely store your information and allow you to register for events by simply logging in and selecting which event you want to attend.

CampSite maintains two separate secure databases for registration – one for youth and another for adults/families. You will need to create two separate user accounts for each database (we strongly recommend you use the same e-mail address and password for both). We have prepared a User Manual [attached] to assist you with setting up your account(s). Please follow the appropriate links below to get started.

Youth (for youth camps/retreats) - click here to create a user account for youth camps/retreats
