Camp Widjiitiwin is excited to announce Venture Camp, a new partnership with Capstone Community Bible Church in Toronto. For those familiar with Widjiitiwin, Capstone’s teaching pastor, Rob Cripps, is Sad Sac who has been a camp pastor for many years and their youth pastor Andrew Ironside is Nemo. We are planning for 30-40 campers in the first year drawing from the church and Capstone’s community outreach.
With each of our partnership weeks, the campers come to Muskoka, hear about Jesus, have great meals and try SO many new activities that they would never be an opportunity for them at home.
These include seeing stars, swimming in the river, tubing, archery, getting away from the city, surviving a week with no technology, camp staff who care for them as individuals, mountain biking (I’m amazed every year the number of kids we teach to ride), chapels with a clear gospel presentation, climbing wall and high ropes, living in community, gain independence, interpersonal/social skills, problem solving, courage from trying new things, perseverance, learn they can thrive even without mom/dad, build character, learn to play outside and more.
Yesterday I (Moose) did a presentation for the church and they are taking this on as a mission’s project for the church. The total cost for this week of ministry is $15,000. Capstone has committed to raising $200 per camper to attend. Additional donations will be required to support this new and great ministry opportunity.
If you would like to donate to support this outreach ministry please contact Mike Greenfield at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp Widjiitiwin – the way camp was meant to be… relational, central, natural, reaching out, a loving community focused on Christ. It’s like coming home, it’s my camp!
