This past summer all four of my kids got to experience something they’ve never done before and in their books… it topped their first trip to Disney World last year!!
That’s not an exaggeration.
I’d asked my kids to guest post a “review” of their time away, my darling daughter got on it immediately. Her post was live a few days after they got home. My boys were another story… Finally this past weekend my oldest son put something together, he made this video on his own to describe his experience at Ontario Pioneer Camp.
When looking for Christmas gifts this year, why don’t you think outside the box?!
Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, who runs the Pioneer and Circle Square Ranch Camps all across Canada have been around for a very long time (est. 1929) and is a fantastic organization. One worth supporting!
Last summer alone Inter-Varsity helped 679 children go to summer camp who could not afford it on their own. Currently, what’s available in their scholarship funds for next summer, will not cut it.
DID YOU KNOW?
According to a study done by the University of Waterloo, children who attend summer camps are more self-confident, have better social skills and are more emotionally intelligent?

Children who attend summer camp are more likely to remain committed to their faith once they graduate from high school? Read the full report about that here on “Hemorrhaging Faith“.

Great post and so inspiring!
Looks like a great camp, and a great character-building experience.
This is a wonderful idea and I'll be sure to pass this info on.
This is a wonderful cause to donate to!! I am all for donating especially at Christmas time. Unfortunately, I am donating to another cause this holiday season. Perhaps next year!
How awesome is this! Camp is so much fun, something every kid should experience!
Camp is such a great experience! Kids learn so much! Thank you for sharing!
that's a great idea. I never experienced camp (even at the urging of my parents) as an adult, I do regret not having those memories, but I was just too much of a home body. I hope my kids will go
What a great video and experience! Where is this camp located, I swear I went there when I was a kid. Many moons ago, I went with my catholic school. So inspiring though. Great post Shannon. 😀
