    What do you do differently or uniquely well?

    "We provide a screen-free experience, surrounded by our own mixed pine and deciduous forest on a beautiful lake. Campers can relax, explore, enjoy favourite camp activities and master new skills in a caring environment. Activities are designed to be accomplished through support and encouragement to one another. Campers participate in daily faith-based learning in which they are encouraged to participate but free to express their own opinions and explore faith at their own pace. The schedule includes traditional camps, canoe tripping, Leaders-in-Training plus a STEM and Music, Arts, Dance and Drama week. Community camp, for the entire family, is also available. "

    Who are your staff and counsellors?

    "Many of our staff are former campers, who had a great time at Gracefield and want to share the experience with others! Most counselors are high school or postsecondary students. Annual staff training includes techniques for guiding activities, leading groups, empowering youth, preventing bullying, and supporting people with special needs. Staff are also trained in first aid. Specialized training is required for waterfront and canoe tripping staff. "

    What do families need to know about registration?

    "Early Bird discounts (10% off) end on March 31, 2024.

    Tiered pricing options are available, including List Price (regular listed price), List Discount (for those who need a helping hand) and List Plus (for those who want to contribute to our campership fund).

    Families in financial need can apply for Gracefield camperships to assist with camp fees, or ask their own church or faith group.

    Day camp is an option for kids who are not yet ready for overnight camp. Families can book space at camp for their own holiday!

    Director's Message

    Mark Hamilton, Managing Director

    Mark has been a part of the community of Gracefield Camp since his first summer in 2020. He has worked in various positions at camps in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.  He was excited to have the opportunity to combine a job in camping with being back close to his hometown of Shawville, QC.  Mark graduated with a BA in strategic ministry from Millar College of the Bible in Saskatchewan. He spent 4 years working as a full-time pastor in Rossland, BC and before that was a youth pastor in Crossfield, AB. Mark has a passion for developing young leaders for today and the future. He enjoys having the opportunity to train the next generation of youth and young adult leaders and watching them grow in confidence at camp each summer!
