Who We Are

Our Organization

Camp Mishewah is owned and operated by Evergreen Christian Ministries.

At ECM Camps, we are committed to giving children, youth, families and the church community a place to connect with one another and with God through fun, quality camping programs.  As believers, we get together to learn, play and worship together. God’s creation is a great place to step away from our regular lives and further develop our relationship with our Saviour, Jesus.  There’s always so much more to learn about Him, through speakers, study and discussion times. For those who don’t know Jesus yet, camp is a setting where we share His love and care for them as we deepen relationships and form new friendships.  

ECM also operates a year-round retreat facility at Stayner Camp, which hosts a youth day camp, 2 weeks of family camp, and seasonal campers.

ECM is a partner ministry of the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada, and a member of CCI Canada.

Our History

Our site on Round lake has a history of camp ministry going as far back as 1935.  Previously, the property was owned by Franklin Middleton Memorial Camp, and later by Camp Kirjatharba. The camp was then purchased by the Missionary Church and we ran our first summer as Camp Mishewah in 1972.

Our 50th anniversary in 2022 is fast approaching, and we have some special events and plans in the works. In preparation, we want to hear your camping memories and stories. Continue checking our website for more info.

Our Beliefs

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless humanity, His divine miracles, His bodily death and resurrection, His ascension, His ongoing mediatorial work, and His personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the salvation of lost and sinful people through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, received by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling believers are enabled to live a holy life to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe in the unity in the spirit of all true believers, the Body of Christ, and the local church as the tangible expression of the Body of Christ.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe the Holy Scriptures (the Bible), as originally given by God, are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and are the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

These are the non-negotiable essentials of the Christian faith. The statement is Orthodox and Evangelical. Orthodox means in agreement with the historic teaching of the Christian faith as expressed in the historic creeds. Evangelical means an emphasis on the biblical gospel about salvation by faith in Christ and new life (regeneration) by the transforming work of the Holy Spirit. This new life is essential to the Christian walk.
