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

Adult/Families - click here to create a user account for Adults/Families

Use Campsite to Register Now for:

  • BC Friends & Family Weekend
  • Adult Reunion (HOP)
  • CWM Youth Camp
