It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Christmas magic is beginning to unfold at Camp Ho-Ba-Chee. We have started unpacking our stock of vintage ornaments and decorating the shop inside and out.

Vintage lights, tinsel trees, blow mold santas, Christmas aprons, mercury glass ornaments, mica villages, frankel birds, and a partridge in a bottle brush tree ....

The Warkworth Santa Claus parade is coming to town on the evening of Friday December 2nd, 2011. We will be staying open late that night and offering up hot chocolate to keep you toasty warm.

On Saturday December 3rd Camp Ho-Ba-Chee will be having a Christmas Open House so if you are in the area we would love you to drop in and visit and enjoy some Christmas cheer.

Happy 2011 - It's Gonna Be A Good One

We are excited about the new year.
                      New beginnings,
                             dreams unfolding,
                                     a year of possibilities.

Feels good getting organized,

making time for all that we want to do - work, play, discover, create, share, savour.

To live in the moment rather than waiting for tomorrow.

To be enlightened and light of heart.

What does the new year mean for you?
