Please, DO NOT pay attention at the 1 star reviews left recently. It has nothing to do with staff being rude, let alone prejudice against different races and cultures! It's shocking to see how they are not being honest with their reviews and not really telling what happened. They got in trouble for simply not wanting to follow clear rules set by the camp staff, which was being followed by everyone, except for them. Camp Elim is a free ALCOHOL AND SMOKE camp. You're not allow to drink and smoke on the camping site and this is a condition you're made aware at the moment of booking, there are also signs everywhere in the camp reminding people about this. These people clearly didn't their job reading about the camp and were drinking and smoking from the moment they arrived as I was able to witness myself. Staff warned them about the rules and instead of simply following it they started being loud and abusive, disrespecting not only the staff but also the other guests who were following the rules with no issues. Guests are also asked to be quiet from 9:30pm until 8am, a very welcomed rule for all the families camping here with young kids who sleep early. It happens this is a perfect spot for families as the lake is extremely safe for little ones, with the no alcohol and smoke rules making it even more perfect for families just wanting to spend some good and relaxing family time. In all my interactions with staff, they were nice and courteous. So if you're wanting to party, drink and be loud, this is not the place for you and instead of abusing staff and refusing to follow the rules imposed to everyone, leave and go somewhere else. I'd like to leave here my thank you to all the staff for creating such a wonderful place for families. I felt in love with it and will definitely be back!

I wish i could give it a 0 rating ! this is so shameful that we spent our money and waste our time by going there ! First they didn’t let us know about the rules of the camp ! the stuff members were so disrespectful and racist !!! They had such good managers but the stuff were so rude that the managers wasn’t even able to stand in-front of them !! Also as it was included in the international law and the basic laws , no one should be treated differently by their race or identity or culture. I would recommend to people who would like to enjoy their time at camping and enjoy the breaks that they are getting from work and life is not to go to elim camp !! I believe people go to camping to take break from reality of life and enjoy their time with mother nature ! They are supper religious and i think people should keep their opinions to themselves and not to disrespect others . its shocking how people can’t put their nose in their own job and life and not to judge the story by what they see with their eyes .

A favourite place of ours, we are regular visitors to Camp Elim. The location is stunning, the staff super friendly and helpful, the cost is great and there are no rowdy groups partying into the small hours.
