Looking Back

Uncover the Truth

Thank you to everyone who sent their child to camp this summer! You helped make 2018 another fantastic year at camp with lots of great memories.

This summer we “uncovered the truth” about who we are in Christ. We played fun games, had cool bible lessons, and did plenty of other crazy activities.

Some of our daily activities were things like art, crafts, guitar, woodworking, survival skills, sports, archery, cartoons, kayaking, canoeing. This summer, we added a brand new “kayak trip” for that activity. It was a cool chance for those kids to see more of Conestoga lake and exercise their new kayaking skills with a bit of distance paddling.

We were also very grateful in finding a new pontoon boat that served us all summer in taking each age group for trips around the lake!

We hope every kid had a great summer and we look forward to seeing everyone back next season!

CIT Program

We added a brand new CIT Program this summer and we are pleased to say it went fabulously. We spent the spring training times giving them more specific training that was tailored just to the CIT’s. They also learned throughout summer as a group and were constantly coached in their new roles at camp. We are happy to say this program will continue!

2018 Updates

We are continually pushing forward with our Revamp the Camp plan. Our costs are always increasing as we continue to purchase more property surrounding the camp, and are in the process of building a new septic system, as mandated by the MOE. As we grow the camp physically, our operating costs continue to go up as well. Please consider donating monthly to the camp, or one time to a specific project. We estimate our 2019 needs could be as high as $1M for operating budget and new infrastructure. We thank you for your continued support and prayers.

Join us for our second annual CBC Celebration Dinner! There is a chance to hear more details about the past year of camp, learn about our current successes and struggles, as well as get some insight to where we are headed in the future! We would love to share a meal with you so we can say thank you for all the support and to keep you updated on all things CBC. The link for tickets can be found on the website.

We are often asked what the camp needs, other than monetary donations. Here is a list of some of our needs for 2018:
- Gently Used Couches
