I wish to announce that I have taken over the position of Camp Director here at Hope Bay.
At this present time, we are still in the umbrella of Covid rules and regulations as we try to keep everyone safe and wait for the vaccines to be given and then hopefully we will start to be able to gather again..
Our plan is to have Day camps for our on island young folk this August. Although this is not our ideal plan, I'm grateful that we can plan to do this and share the love of Christ with those we interact with.
Please watch for our upcoming exciting news and final summer plans as we strive to nail down the dates and staff.

We're grateful to have offered creative solutions last summer, including three weeks of Day Camps for locals, and a Camp-In-A-Box option for those further away. They gave us the unique opportunity to connect deeply with those of Pender Island, while growing and maintaining our reach far beyond this island. Thank you to all those who participated and trusted in our programs.
Some summer camps have had a very difficult time 'staying afloat' and we pray that they will make it through. We believe in the people, programs, and places of the Canadian camp industry, and wish each organization the best as they navigate.
These are difficult times for all, but as we keep our heads up, we notice the blessings and offer what we have to the world. Thanks for your continued support!
