Family Camp 2021

Overview

Camp 2021 is almost upon us and we are  incredibly excited, yet slightly anxious, as it is different in many aspects due to the times we are currently living in. Due to the pandemic we have had to alter our camp format as we work around the challenges of the border. We will try to outline as many details below to provide you as much information as possible.

Camp this year will be formatted unlike the camps we have had in the recent past. Our local congregation has been apart for many months and the vision and desire for this camp is to re-connect with each other with fellowship around the Word of God.

We have mentioned this is a “family camp”, however we will still be housing the youth together in cabins as before. Those that would rather stay as a family, please let us know so we can arrange the cabins appropriately.

There will be different activities through the weekend that will be available, but it will be at your discretion whether you want to take part. Our goal is to have time together in a relaxed atmosphere, catching up after many months apart, and having an incredible time in His Presence in the services with Bro. Lawson and Bro. Mayeur.

If you have any questions that are not answered below, do not hesitate to contact the church office, or Bro. Michael and Sis. Abigail.

Dates & Schedule

  • Wednesday, August 11 – Sunday August 15

As people will be arriving throughout the day, please check-in with Bro. Michael & Sis. Abigail to find out which cabin you will be staying in. 

The camp will be available to stay on grounds beginning Monday if you would like to get set up early, however our camp doesn’t officially begin until Wednesday, with the first meal being served on Wednesday night. If you do choose to come early, be sure to plan meals that you can prepare in your cabin/ RV as the kitchen facility will not be available.

As we have no other camps that need the grounds after August 15, anyone that is available, and wishes to may stay longer than Sunday, August 15. Please note however, food will be your responsibility from dinner on Sunday and onward.

**If you are planning to be at camp early, you must contact Brother Michael or Sister Abigail so we can let you know what cabin you are in as accommodations are very specific.**
