Nakamun is the
perfect location for…

Church Retreats, Youth Groups, School Bands, Outdoor Education, Team Building weekends, Conferences, training courses, board meetings, Pastoral Retreats, Crafts and Quilting Retreats, & Banquets

We love hosting groups. Any group! If you have a group, bring them to Nakamun! We can host anywhere between a few people to over 400!


The key is space. We have a variety of accommodations and meeting rooms to suit groups of any size. The fact that these facilities are spread out across our property means that your group will have plenty of space to be yourselves. Even when we host 3 or 4 different groups on a weekend, the flow of traffic is great and some groups say they didn’t even realize that there were so many people on site with them.

Our kitchen is always serving up tasty meals. Our philosophy is that our groups are here to have a good time, so a big part of that needs to take place in the dining room.

We serve things like pancakes, sausages, sub sandwiches, taco salads with a ton of topping options. Grilled cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, and roast beef for supper, just to name a few.

Our Dining room holds up to 250, with an overflow room next door. If you’re group is here with another, we will designate tables so that you can be sure your crew can all sit together.

Still hungry? Put your plate away and head back up for seconds! Coffee and Tea are also always available in the dining hall for teachers, chaparones and all other adults.

Our taps flow with well water, which is drinkable, but we also truck in water from the city for our juice, tea, coffee, and water fountain.

Getting Here

Google will usually give good directions to camp. However, go the Busby/Dunstable route if you want to avoid gravel roads.

The best way to get to Nakamun from Edmonton is to head North on Hwy 44. Turn west at Hwy 651, go through Busby, then after about 20 km turn south at Dunstable school. After 7 km the road will curve to the west. Nakamun’s entrance is on the right.
