This is one of the permanent buildins available at Chubb Lake.

Milton Rutherford and Graham McIntosh  were fishing on Chubb Lake 49 years ago and both had been praying together with their Pastor Reuben Schmunk for a suitable location to start a bible camp. Both were looking up at the tree-covered slope with a flat area at the top when they turned and looked at each other “wouldn’t this be an ideal location for our camp?”

By summer of the next year a huge tent with a sawdust floor was filled with excited children and their counsellors – Chubb  Lake Bible Camp has continued till this day.

I have been involved at this camp for more than 30 years and have directed a 50+ Camp for the past five years.

The wide road slopes down from the gate to the azure blue lake sparkling in the summer sunshine. You may see a red canoe out in the middle of the lake with a lone person communing with the Lord and His creation. The loons sing their familiar melody while an eagle swoops down to catch a fish.
