A stunning view of our facility that can be used for a church camp rental.

We can't do this without you.


Operating a retreat centre such as ours comes at a high cost -but the benefit to the church is worth it! We believe that camps and retreats are the best tool that the church has to develop relationships.

We have many stories of people encountering the grace of Jesus Christ at the this place, leaving reassured of God’s magnificent light! Both event attendees and rental groups have described finding a certain peace in this place, allowing them to recenter themselves upon the Lord.

Guests at Island Lake have experience transformation in their relationships! Trust has been built, divisions have disappeared, and communities have been transformed! Truly, Island Lake is a place where walls come down and love springs up!

We keep fees for our guests as low as possible, so none of this would be possible without generous contributions from people like you!
