Camp Columba's mission is "To demonstrate God's love to all who come to Camp." This is accomplished by designing camps for the development and encouragement of the physical, mental, social and spiritual aspect of each person. Our programmes are created to engage different ages, cultures and genders. While at camp all campers are under the supervision of trained leaders and program assistants (leaders in training). Healthy and hearty meals are served from our camp kitchen with morning & afternoon teas and supper.
