The Longhouse

Camp Widjiitiwin is a three season, Christian focused camp facility situated on the beautiful Muskoka River near Huntsville, Ontario. Whatever the season, you will find yourself in the natural beauty of God’s creation. As well, you will have the opportunity for a personalized retreat to fit the unique needs of your church group.

It is our desire not only to provide an enjoyable and refreshing time away, but also to see our guests come to faith and maturity in Jesus Christ. Our facilities are conducive to exploring what God has to teach each of us and we’ll take the pressure off in terms of facilitating your experience so you can spend more time with your group members.

We have 16 camper cabins (8 on the girl’s side and 8 on the boy’s side). Each cabin in the ends can house 10 individuals in bunk beds. Washroom and shower facilities are located on each side of camp. Some additional cabins are available for camp speakers and leaders.

We’re open for retreats during May, June and September. Call 705-789-0123 or email for available weekends. We want to extend to you a very special invitation to join us this year and discover, or rediscover, Camp Widjiitiwin.

Commonly Asked Questions

How many can you accommodate? We can house and feed up to 175 people. The minimum group size is 25 paid participants.

What do I need to do to book? – In order to book, you need to confirm a date with the Camp Director and then return your booking agreement with the deposit.

Can we bring or cook our own food? – There is absolutely no cooking in any of our accommodations. If your group has special food needs, please make that known to the Camp Director at least two weeks prior to your retreat start date. Our cooks are great at preparing specialty meals, if someone in your group has special food needs (i.e. diabetic or vegetarian), our head cook is happy to accommodate. Just let us know before you arrive and we will be better prepared for your group. We also require that guests refrain from bringing their own snacks into their cabins as they tend to attract curious critters.

What happens when we check in? – Your group members must go to the main camp office (The Longhouse) to check in. There they will receive their room assignment. They will also receive a map of the grounds. This is the best spot for you to greet your group members and hand out programs or other information. Upon your request, an 8’ table can be set up at that location for you to use as a greeting table.
