When looking for Christmas gifts this year, why don’t you think outside the box?!

Give a gift that gives back!!

Ontario Pioneer Camp has been an important part of my families life for the last two years. We’ve made it a destination point for our family during the Summer, Fall and even Winter (Check out my OPC Family Day experience). My kids have been bugging me to register them for 2014 overnight summer camp for months!

Pioneer Camps and Circle Square Ranches are located across Canada. As an integral part of Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship of Canada, there are some camps which have been in operation for more than 80 years (Ontario Pioneer Camp est. 1929), this is an organization worth supporting! Over 90% of those who attend OPC as children, become camp volunteers, chalet leaders and kitchen staff at the camp. That speaks volumes about this organization!!

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“.

For as low as $25, you can help change a life! Help a child, tween or teen experience something memorable, build lasting friendships, and increase their self-confidence all at the same time!

Here are a few examples of the type of gifts you can select and the areas you can support:

My oldest is turning 16 next year, he would like to register for LIT. LIT is a Leadership in Training program designed to train and equip young leaders with the tools they need to be Christ centered leaders at camp, in their churches and in their communities at home.

This Christmas, honour someone in your life by helping shape tomorrow’s leaders. Your generous gift is a great alternative to a standard Christmas gift as it will help to make camp ministry possible for thousands of campers this year.  

*All gifts will receive a tax receipt as Inter-Varsity is a registered Charity/Non-Profit Organization.*
