A porcupine, you can buy smaller replicas in the gift shop
This stuffed porcupine was a main attraction and many purchased smaller stuffed replicas of it. On our trip to Labrador we saw many of them on the road. Obviously, they are addicted to salt which is used during the winter.
The stories that they can shoot their needles are not true. But many predators died when they tried to eat them.
The gift shop
Naturally, Elizabeth supports Camp Kahquah - not only by buying souvenirs - she also dedicated a part of her offerings at our church to this Christian camp.
Many indoor activities are offered at Camp Kahquah. Not only to keep you busy on rainy days, but also for people with walking problems who can not hike the so called "Hiawatha Trail".
A brochure says:
"The Great creator wants to walk along with you on the Hiawatha Trail."
Bible verses on stones on the Hiawatha Trail
Elizabeth enjoys the Hiawatha Trail
The following are some of the indoor activities which were very much appreciated by the group.
Leisure time, games, reading, talking
Devotional area in back
Elizabeth enjoys always the outdoors very much. She had a great time during this wonderful Indian summer in 2008 at the Ahmic Lake in the Christian Camp Kahquah.
During the summer months the attractive sandy beach of the camp is certainly perfect for swimming and bathing.
Free row boats and pedal boats are available for guests.
Canoes for the warmer season
The beautiful nature and the clean air made Elizabeth's stay to an unforgettable event besides all the fellowship. She was so excited that she was already thinking about another visit with me in 2009. We only have to arrange for a cat sitter.
Playground for children
Outdoor shuffle board, very popular
I always thought that shuffle board is a music instrument. Now I know I may be able to play it too. I must not run and jump. I even may be able to sit down when playing it.
After I got mangled up in an accident with my fast Vespa on the QEW my walking is not any longer the greatest. I do not talk about my age and my overweight!.
A fire pit
Peaceful and relaxing
Everybody loves sunsets
Elizabeth was excited about all the things which Camp Kahquah offers. Starting with the singing (she is member in a German - Canadian choir) and the worship , the food, the friendliness of the staff, the new contacts she made, and all the offered activities.
Please contact your BIC church or Camp Kahquah direct if you have any quote questions. As I said use the search function of your browser to find this great place.
