I'll like to say Thank you to Paul and his staff. This past weekend our church, Liberty Christian Centre held our annual Ladies Retreat at Ignite Retreat Centre. What wonderful weather we had, which allowed us to go fishing, canoeing, as well as other outdoors activities A special shout out to Chef Mike and his kitchen staff for all the great meals and snacks you provided for us, we loved it. Paul all in all, your team were very, very helpful. On behalf of our  President I say Thank You. Blessings on this Ministry!

'Uncle Paul' & Pryce Family! We are so grateful to all of you and your team for accommodating the Watoto Children's Choir and for allowing us to completely take over your space during our tour preparation week. We felt you become a part of our family as we spent meal times together and prayed together.

Our beds were comfortable, our bellies full with incredibly yummy food, and our group was warm and happy! We felt so loved by you and the kids will never forget their snow day and riding on the snowmobiles with 'Uncle Jason' and you.

Thank you for everything and we look forward to visiting again on our future tours! Sincerely, Abby, the rest of the Watoto Canada office & Choir 78

Just left Ignite Camp for a Youth Unlimited Student Leader overnighter! The facilities are vast and very accomodating. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. We completely underestimated the cooking staffs ability to satisfy us, and finally, the leadership was more than flexible with our numbers, they communicated with us well, and bent over backward to help us make it work! Thanks Paul and family!

Cangrands National Kinship Support had the blessing of using this camp three years in a row. The site is not as fancy as where we had moved from however we are only in the cabins for sleeping and the rest was so worth it. The staff, service and level of care sure was far from our expections. Our over all experience was 1st class. The food was awesaome! The camp counsellors were great with our very special needs children. Paul was able to secure extra volunteers to assit us since many of our children really do better with 1 on 2 care than in groups.  If we had not lost a major sponsor we would still be hosting our kinship care there.  www.cangrands.com

Toronto Ghanaian Seventh-Day Adventist Church Youth, spent a wonderful weekend at Ignite Camp from May 16th-19th. The staff at Ingite Camp are very friendly and are committed to ensuring guests feel welcome and happy. The food was delicious and the staff were very flexible in accommodating the vegeterian/vegan guests. Executive Director, Paul Pryce, is such a patient, kind, funny, and God fearing man.  If you want to attend a retreat centre where you will feel welcome by very friendly staff, attend IGNITE CAMP!

I just wanted to drop a note to you after having such a great weekend at the Men Leading Boys retreat.  You have a really great facility there.  The room my son and I shared was really nice.  We were really greatful for how well we were fed.  The camp had so much for us to do.  Even on the day it rained we were active the entire day.  I am looking forward to next year.

This weekend, was the third time that our youth fellowship returned to Ignite camp for our retreat. As usual: the staff was very welcoming; food was delicious and in abundance; the facility was clean; there was a variety of activities; the site in a peaceful surrounding. I would recommend you to try out this wonderful camp site in an easily accessible location.

Had an awesome time at the Ignite Camp! The food was great, the cabins were clean and nice, the staff members were kind towards us, and they had so many games to choose to play during free time ( E.g.: BB Guns, Archery, Canoeing, Swimming, Hockey, Basketball, Volleyball etc.) This camp is a nice and cozy one so go check it out!

Thank you so much to Paul and the staff! We held a conference at this site this past weekend and could not have been made to feel more welcome! We wanted so much to be able to stay a little longer. Thanks to the kitchen staff who fed us too well and way beyond our expectations! Truly we are so thankful to you for making Peter's birthday so special! Our prayers and support are behind this wonderful facility that cares so much! May God grant you favour in all aspects of your business and ministry!

Awana Ontario Scholarship Camp has been a long time renter of the camp facilities provided by Camp Kakeka Inc.  We have been with them at Basshaunt Lake, near Haliburton and also at the Deer Lake location near South River.  We are particularly pleased with the current camp leadership and staff.  Anything we have required to run our program effectively has been provided, not least of which was excellent meals and accommodation.  With over a hundred young people, grades 6 through 12 on site, as well as about 25 counsellors and staff, it was a relief to know that we did not have to worry about waterfront safety, skills activities leadership or campfire prep.  That's why we're coming back again this summer!

The Church of God of Prophecy has a long tradition of camping ministry in eastern Canada.  During the past three summer camps I have had the blessing and pleasure of using the Deer Lake CC facility run by Paul Pryce and his excellent staff.  I am happy to offer my personal recommendation and endorsement.I have also had the pleasure of recently seeing the new facility in Ameliasburgh and look forward to the possibilities of this even better equipped facility!

Toronto City Mission has been blessed by the ministry of Camp Kakea Inc. for the past two years.  We look forward to making the move to Ignite Camp & Retreat Centre.  I have seen the property and I'm very pleased with this new facility.  Since it's the same cook and the same management I'm confident that we will continue to receive the same great food and excellent service that has made our past experiences so exceptional.
