I wanted to put some dates on your radar for events happening at Camp Chestermere. I have included a brief description with each event as to how we think this event can be a benefit for your church and community. Thanks in advance for your support of these events. Promotional materials for all of these events will start to come out over the next few weeks.
October 2019 School Year Camp
Friday October 4 - Sunday October 6
This is for Junior and Senior High Students. Last year we had a number of churches involved including Rocky Mountain Calvary Chapel, North West Community Church, Lakeridge Church, Whitefields, and Sunwest. This event is great for churches who may have a small to medium size youth group who are looking to do a retreat with their youth at the start of the year. We provide the speaker, worship and plan all of the activities. We can build in time for you to meet with just your group if you like. A planning committee is now being formed for October 2019 and so let us know asap if you would like your church to be a part of this planning committee.
March 2020 Kids School Year Camp
Friday March 13 - Sunday March 15, 2020
This camp is done in cooperation with Heritage Christian Academy Junior High Missions. Camp Chestermere staff mentor a group of students from HCA on how to run a camp and then those students come and execute that camp. This camp is for children ages 7 - 11. Campers who attend this camp get very excited about going to a camp where youth plan the events. This is a great opportunity for younger kids to enjoy a weekend camp.
Family Fun Fair
Friday June 5 - Saturday June 6, 2020
Are you looking for something for your youth group to do on a Friday night? Then this is the event for you. The Friday night of Family Fun Fair includes activities like kayaking, canoeing, archery, bouncy castles and more. The night concludes with a movie on the beach and then fireworks. You can bring your youth group out for an awesome night for just $10 per person. If you would like us to add a worship component to this for your group then we could do this in the Chap as well. Families from your church are also welcome to attend.
The Saturday of Family Fun Fair is a mini fair that includes activities like canoeing, kayaking, wall climbing, bouncy castles, a kid zone, power tubing, boat rides and much more. There is a farmers market, food trucks and a rabbit show as well. This is a great event to bring your family to. Again, wristbands for the activities are just $10 per person.
Fun 4 Fun
Saturday June 13, 2020
Fun 4 Fun is adults being kids so kids can be kids. Camp Chestermere believes that financial barriers should not be a reason why a child does not come to camp. So, we have a financial assistance program known as Jar Jar's Kids. This campaign helps kids be able to come to camp who otherwise could not afford to do so. For this event, you put together a team of four, get people to sponsor you, and come out for an afternoon of competition and help raise money for Jar Jar's Kids. This is an adult only event. It is a great way to represent your church and help in a very practical way to provide the opportunity for kids to be able to come to camp.
There are a couple of other events that will be added to our calendar shortly including our Fundraiser, Halloween Howler, and Staff/Volunteer Appreciation Christmas Party. We are also in discussion on bringing back inFuze. Please watch for this information over the next couple of weeks.
But for now, please mark the above dates on your calendar and send your youth to the School Year Camps. Then have your youth group and/or families join us for Family Fun Fair and then your adults come out for Fun 4 Fun. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Thanks in advance for your support.
