Services

The Van-Es Camp and Conference Centre offers a number of services to make your event a success. The following is a short list of the services we regularly offer to our clients.

Catering

We offer professional catering for up to 175 diners. There are a range of menus and options for you to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks and banquet options as well. Please take a look at our downloadable menu options below. The pricing is listed on each menu. Please note that there is a discount rate for those ordering breakfast, lunch and dinner: $35 pp/day.

 

Cook

Our cook is Lois Derkson. When asked about what she enjoys most about being the cook at Van-Es Camp and Conference Centre she doesn't hesitate: "The kitchen is the heart of the home and also of Camp Van-Es. We have good people there and they need good food."

At the top of Lois' business card it says "Called to Serve." And at the bottom it reads "Catering with Love." These two phrases perfectly describe Lois' ministry at Van-Es Camp and Conference Centre.

 

Audio/Visual

We offer a number of audio and visual technology to make your presentations work. We have HDMI compatible projector, 8' x 8' screens for the Harmony Centre auditorium and the Chapel. We have a wireless microphone system and powered speakers. We offer free Wi-Fi Internet connection in our Harmony Auditorium and Unity Lodge. And we have a electronic keyboard for rent. The board room in the Unity Lodge has a built in projector and sound system, with a full wall of Whitey Board for use with dry erase markers.

 

Swimming Pool

The pool and hot tub are available for rent all year round. We charge by the hour, but we do not provide towels or life guards. The pool and hot tub are excellent events to have on your next family reunion or weekend retreat. The pool area is 1,386 sq ft and the pool is 1.5m at the deep end and .5m at the shallow.

 

Outdoor Sports

Van-Es Camp & Conference Center offers a wealth of outdoor activities. Other than swimming, we also offer outdoor sports like: basketball, volleyball, soccer, archery, snow shoeing, and horseshoes.

 

Firewood

We provide firewood for use in our fireplaces on request. We have fireplaces in both the Morning Star Hall and the Chapel.

 

Electrical Hookup

Although we do not provide septic hookups (gray or black), we do have electrical hookups for trailers and motor homes

 

Caretaker

For 20 years Rupert Neuman has been the caretaker / host / ambassador extraordinaire for Camp Van-Es & Conference Centre. When asked what he likes best about working at Van-Es, Rupert will say "everything". Rupert loves people and he lives that out every day. To the kids he is "Grandpa," to the Van-Es Board he is a lifesaver, to guests he is the go-to person and a welcoming host.
