The camp began with a mobile cook-house with campers using tents and camper-trailers. From the earliest days Camp Oshkidee hosted Family Camps, and partnered with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship who operated children and youth camps. Camp Oshkidee has also leased the site for over 25 years to Christian Medical Dental Society, Saskatoon Chapter, for their week-long family camp.
Camp Oshkidee has gone through many changes. Now there are many beautiful and rugged buildings on the site, and Oshkidee runs programs of its own including four weeks of Family Camps and a number of different Youth and Children camps and outings. Some things, however, have stayed the same: the forests of Birch, Spruce and Jack pine, the beautiful beach and pristine waters, the vibrant stars and Northern Lights.
Oshkidee is a place to leave behind the busyness of modern-life and connect with Creation and its Maker with other like-minded people. So come, join us, whether it's one of our programs or simply reserving the site for your own group. At Camp Oshkidee, you are welcome.
Henry "Chips" Block, one of the key founders of the camp, has written in-depth memoirs about the early days of Camp Oshkidee, detailing how God's hand was upon the formation and the development of this fabulous place.
