SALT – NEW for 2017
This year we are offering two different streams for our SALT sessions. We’ve got a 3 special weeks of creativity and adventure planned or you.
Session 1 will focus on the outdoor adventure along with gaining new leadership skills. You’ll learn canoe skills, overcome rock climbing challenges and lots of extra stuff. You’ll have to come to find out more! If you’re between 14 and 17, you won’t want to miss this amazing experience.
Session 2 is for you if you love creativity, arts and music. There will be cool trips around Muskoka to experience artists and arts events. You will be inspired! Widji Radio will be your place to express yourself at camp as we broadcast throughout the week. Come make your mark on Widji this summer.

Trips are made off-site to arts events in Muskoka, the home of the group of Seven founding member Tom Thompson. Widji Radio will be broadcasting your content around camp and other special activities will be made available as the groups interests develop.
Theme Verses: Matthew 5:13-16 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
Psalm 78:70-72 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skilful hands he led them
