Jr Boys Adventure Camp 2019

Welcome to Jr Boys Adventure Camp. Where the boys took railway spikes and formed them in a forge into knifes and traversed in the dark trying to reach the goal in mission impossible. The splash of water was heard as campers navigated their canoes down the Red Deer River. They experienced looking at the stars and seeing God's creation as they slept out in the wild in tents. The boys got to smash computers into smithereens as part of the object lesson in Todd's, this weeks speaker, message about storing your treasures in heaven or on earth. On the final night of the week everyone dressed up as a pirates and had a special surprise dessert of worms in dirt in their This week was a blast for all

Jr Girls Camp 2019

Jr. Girls Camp was a blast! Our theme for the week was "Met Gala". The girls were given puzzles each day to find their memory verses! Every night the girls attended a Gala with its own unique theme!

Teen Camp I 2019

July is finally here, meaning that camp has officially started! This week we completed our first ever Teen Camp 1 as well as the beginning to the LEAD program. We had a relatively tight-knit group this week with 11 campers, and this meant that we were able to connect really well and were blessed to see God move within the campers.

We named our camp “Identity Crisis”, and when our campers came into camp they immediately became secret agents who were tasked with uncovering the secret identities of some of our staff members. They found and pieced together a puzzle which led them to a hidden treasure
