Lives are Transformed at Camp
As ministries of The Presbyterian Church in Canada, camps across the country provide a safe space for children and youth in a loving Christian community, sowing seeds of faith in a child’s young life. For many, the experience will be life-changing as they respond to the message of the Gospel for the very first time.
