Room & Board (Optional)

For those who choose, we have a meal plan, and rooms available under our dining hall for an additional fee.  Accommodations include a single bed, a dresser, a desk, and a closet.  Each room has direct access to a small outside patio space, which borders green space overlooking the creek.  Bathrooms are shared.  Space is limited, with very little storage.  Please bring only what you need.


Laundry facilities are available, and the student lounge is available as a gathering place for all students.

Treed Mountain Setting

Charis Camp exists to provide facilities and programs to serve the local church, and make Jesus Christ known to all, by demonstrating Christian integrity and values.  It was founded in 1947 with the heart of bringing people to Christ through the wonderful camp experience.  The Camp is part of the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada. The word "Charis" is the Greek word for "grace". 

Nestled tightly at the base of Mount Cheam, Charis Camp & Conference Centre is sheltered by 20 acres of Cedar and Fir forests, and is graced with two rushing creeks.


Charis Camp has it's own chef.  Enjoy a wonderful homemade meal and then relax in front of the fireplace with a hot cup of coffee. Or, take your coffee to go as you take in your next class. Take a deep breath, and enjoy the experience of this peaceful natural setting, God’s wonderful creation.

"Students frequently remark about how Charis Camp has become their "home", and how other residents have become their "family".  This is the kind of atmosphere we were hoping to achieve here through Charis Pathways!"
