Camp Abegweit is an ecumenical camp supported by the Maritime Conference of The United Church of Canada and P.E.I. Presbytery.  Everyone is welcome, not matter what church you attend. (Or even if you don' t go to church at all!)

As a primary means of addressing our biblical calling, we minister to people of various ages and stages of life through the riches of camping experience. As a church committed to offering quality Christian education programs, we provide an environment of safety, love, and respect, where Christ's loving presence can be celebrated and shared.

A new lodge was built in 2008 with a large dining hall, a modern kitchen, two meeting rooms, public washrooms, first aid room, office, and three small dormitory areas that will sleep 20. This facility is available for rental by outside groups from May 15 to October 15 when not in use by the camp.

The property is on the ocean with a tremendous view. Four ponds were built in collaboration with Ducks Unlimited in 2008, which will over time provide additional beauty for walking trails.

For the 2009 season, a rainy day recreation building with an Arts and Crafts area opened. In addition, erosion prevention work is being done on the beach front.

We have an outdoor chapel for nightly vespers. In the summer of 2016 work was started to improve the trail to the chapel and to make it more accessible. This project will continue in 2017.

Eleven camper cabins with a capacity of 8-10 each, an administrator’s cottage and a cook’s cabin are available for accommodations for staff and campers.
