Regular Group Booking Policy

  • We want to communicate with you and are here to help you prepare. Give us a call at 250-788-2361, or email us at office@campsagitawa.ca
  • Our rentals are very reasonably priced. Our main goals are:
    • To provide an excellent service to your group.
    • To introduce groups, families, and kids to our camping programs.
  • Groups may now tentatively book the same weekend on an annual basis. Bookings are subject to availability as determined by our member church usage, which finalizes (for June-Sept dates) after the end of February. 
  • A contract with non-refundable deposit is required a minimum of 3 months prior to the event.
    • Late cancellations create a loss for Sagitawa as we are rarely able to rebook.

Member Church Booking Policy

  • Member Churches pay only for catering and are not charged facility fees for up to 2 uses per year.
    • One of these may be during our main season (June-Sept) if booked by Feb 28.
    • A second may be granted in main season if it is still available within 3 months of the event.
    • Bookings that are subject to regular facility charges may be booked at any time, and dependent on availability.
  • Groups may now tentatively book the same weekend on an annual basis. This will be subject to a fairness review in allocation of peak season weekends amongst all member churches.
  • A contract with non-refundable deposit is required a minimum of 3 months prior to the event.
    • Late cancellations create a loss for Sagitawa as we are rarely able to rebook.

Please consider

  • Member Church rentals are held for the purposes of the local church. Smaller member churches may share weekends to more fully utilize the facility and enhance fellowship. Multi-church conferences are not under a member church rate even if folk are attending from a member church. Everyone at the conference is subject to the same rate whether they attend a Member Church or not.

Quality Catering Service

When it comes to dining, Camp Sagitawa believes in serving quality and providing alternatives. Though we are able to make good choices in what we serve, we also want to work with you to select a menu that is considerate of those with allergies and other preferences. Our food is prepared in a regularly inspected Food Safe environment.

We wish to cooperative by preparing meals that suit your particular program. For some groups this may mean a Christmas in September, or a backwards meal for a bit of fun, or perhaps an outdoor barbeque for a slightly different setting. Some groups have also chosen to cut costs by bringing their own food and using our outdoor fireplace for one or two meals.

We are also flexible to work with your group’s choice of meal times. This of course requires good communication, since our kitchen staff will be as punctual as possible in serving each meal.

Please call us for details.

Canoe & Kayak Rules

Camp Sagitawa canoes are available to those renting our facility without additional cost. In order to preserve the life of the equipment, and to meet our standards for liability we would ask that you follow the procedures below. You can also download and print these rules here.

Equipment Requirements

The following equipment is required prior to embarking:

  • 1 Personal Flotation Device per occupant – done up!
  • 1 Whistle per occupant – attached to PFD
  • 1 Paddle per occupant
  • 1 Throw Line per canoe or kayak
  • 1 Bailing Bucket per canoe or kayak
  • 1 Painter per canoe (yellow towing rope tied to end of canoe)

If kayaks leave the bay area, each occupant must also have:

  • Skirt, Paddle Float, and Duct Tape
Equipment Care

Please care for equipment with the following in mind.

  • Do not drag canoes or kayaks over the ground.
  • Do not step in or sit in the canoes or kayak when any part is touching ground.
  • Paddle blades are not push poles – use the handle against the ground.
  • Please refrain from ramming canoes.
  • Canoes are built for two adults, but will handle three.

Moberly Lake can change from calm to whitecaps in 20 minutes making it very difficult for the amateur to return to shore. The water is extremely cold further from shore and hypothermia can occur after in as little as 15-20 minutes.

Kayaks are not allowed to leave the bay unless very experienced and having extra equipment. If you are going canoeing – Let someone responsible know you are going out.

  • Stay close to shore, unless with experienced canoeists.
  • It is not wise to swamp far away from shore, unless in a group.
  • If you swamp, stay with the kayak or canoe. Never swim for land!
  • Have Fun and Enjoy!

Our Recreational Equipment

Sagitawa offers a wide range of recreational activities. Package rentals include the free use of equipment, but areas requiring instruction are subject to extra cost – examples: 1) Our staff is required for archery, and 2) Your group may want to pay for a guided hike. Package deals include a discount on free instruction that can only be applied to skills.
Climbing Wall
Our 30 ft vertical wall is a challenge. Learn the art of climbing, rappelling and belaying. Our instructors also teach safety, wall preparation and proper use of ropes and equipment. We offer six levels of instruction. — Staff Required.
A challenge to anyone – the most difficult part is the tiny step from off the 32 ft tower to start a 300 m descent across the lagoon. — Staff Required.
Our archery range has a large backstop and 4 targets for 8 shooters at once. We teach the approach, proper shooting form and follow through for accuracy and consistency. — Staff Required.
Our pellet gun range provides room for 6 shooters at a time in a well protected area with safe backdrops. Students learn about safe handling procedures, range etiquette and marksmanship. All principles taught are also applicable to hunting.– Staff Required.
The complexity of sailing provides a different kind of challenge. Learn to set the rigging, respond to the wind, make quick turns, and right a capsized boat. We have 2 monohulls, and a 16’ Trimaran. Room is limited. — Staff Usually Required.
Canoes and Kayaks
A skilled paddler understands the relationship between self, the vessel and the water – and is able to maneuver through most difficult situations. We teach several levels of flatwater canoeing, river canoeing and kayaking. Canoes and kayaks may be used with or without staff instruction. But as common errors are costly, please take care of the equipment by following our canoe and kayak rules.
Outdoor Ed.

We teach basics in survival and orienteering. This includes knots, fires and shelters, use of knives and axes and outdoor cooking. Our hiking trails are available for general use. Guided hikes are also available.


Our waterfront includes a marked swim area, with a trampoline and a large blob. Ask us about NLS qualified lifeguards.

Fantastic Location

Camp Sagitawa is located on the north shore of Moberly Lake, BC. We are 20 minutes north of Chetwynd on Highway 29 – accessible by gravel road just 1 km off the highway. Our waterfront area is on one of the nicest bays on the lake – it welcomes the morning sun, while giving shelter from the afternoon winds. The cold water is pristine: an excellent site for recreation. Our warmest season lasts about 4 months, beginning in mid May, while our colder season is from mid-November through March.

Meet our Full Time Team

Bob Bahr
Bob is one of our co-directors here at camp (along with his wife Carmen). Bob specifically oversees our site and facilities, whether it be working with the board as new buildings are being built or working with staff and volunteers to upkeep the amazing property we have been blessed with. Bob also works with Carmen in overseeing the growth, development and general operations of camp through out the entire year. He also mentors the male summer staff who join our support team. 

Carmen Bahr
Carmen is one of our co-directors here at camp (along with her husband Bob). Carmen specifically looks over all things personnel / HR. From interviews, references, hiring, and coordinating volunteers for all over camp. She and Bob work together in the growth and development of camp, alongside overseeing the daily operations. Carmen also mentors the female summer staff who join our support team. 

We are blessed to have the Bahrs on our team, working as co-directors, allowing the Lord to use the gifts he has given them both for the work here at Camp Sagitawa



Tassie Perron
Tassie is gifted for directing programs and training the team, but it sure keeps her busy. She also oversees the skills onsite, does camps graphic design work, organizes our social media, and more! In the summer you will likely find her explaining a game, singing a silly song with campers, or belaying climbers at the wall… as long as she’s finished scheduling the team for the week. 

Volunteer for Projects


There are so many opportunities to volunteer, and so many who come and help us in one way or another. We appreciate all.

Some projects cannot be done while camp sessions are in process. Others can.Our Property Chair is responsible to manage camp property projects.

We may have 2-3 ongoing projects at a time. We have three thoughts regarding volunteers.

  • Volunteers may help with basic upkeep as needed – i.e. mowing lawns, stacking firewood, etc.
  • Volunteers may help with current projects – these are prioritized by the Property Committee.
  • Volunteers may offer to begin another project on the condition that they finish what they start and that they do it to camp standard. What is done well is safer and saves on maintenance in future years.

For each of the above, please let us know by contacting the office. We will either provide the information or pass you on to our Property Chair.
