Day Camp (Schedule 2005)
running children


Traveling team members spend 4 of their 6 weeks on a team of 2 to 4 people, visiting various parishes across

Canada, leading Day Camps for Children between the ages of 4 and 12. In each parish the team works with the Clergy, Coordinator and parish team to run the Day Camp. The Traveling team acts as leaders for both the children and parish. Before these 4 weeks, 2 weeks are spent in training. The 6 weeks of Day Camps fly by, filled with fun, travel, fellowship and best of all a sense of having accomplished amazing things for God! Many spaces are still available in our diocese.

Junior camps & Senior camps

These are only some of the camps available to you and your kids this summer.

  • They are Christian camps where your children will continue to be exposed to Christian morals and values while they enjoy their time away.
  • Camp is a valuable experience for many kids. They experience an extended time away from their parents in a safe environment.
  • In a Christian camp they get reinforcement of the teachings which they have at home and at church from people they don't normally encounter. This experience can solidify the Christian experience for them in a way that continuation in the same venue sometimes does not.
  • For those whose finances are limited, often bursaries are available, or perhaps your parish could consider providing a bursary for one of the camps.
  • Camp is not for every child, but in our family, 2 out of 3 benefited very much, and their memories are precious to them.[MS]

For more information, contact the camps:

Presently only just the phone number is available. Tel. (819) 868-0431

CEDAR LODGE - Crosstalk Junion Camp, Magog, QC

"If you are willing to travel with me, and stay with me, you will receive all that I receive" promised Christian as he talked to his friends before leaving on his journey to the CELESTIAL CITY. --Who IS Christian? What is the CELESTIAL CITY? How does anyone get there?-- These are all questions that will be answered as campers and staff at Crosstalk Ministries Junior Residential Camp meet together at Cedar Lodge during the week of August 11th to 17th, 2002 to map Christian's trip and share in some of his adventures. There will be the usual team of fun people who are already planning lots of adventure for everyone to have fun. If you were there last year, you will remember some faces and if you are new, why not come on the adventure. See you August 11th, around 2:00pm to start a week of adventure you will not forget!
We have staff positions available as well. For more information, please call Crosstalk Ministries at (514) 484-1414 or Pat Dearling at (514) 683-3369 or (514) 696-6430 or e-mail:

A Great Place To Be This Summer!

Quebec Lodge Camp is located in the Eastern Townships on Lake Massawippi. The camp

was founded in 1943 and is owned and operated by the Anglican Diocese of Quebec. The

camp welcomes children of all church affiliations.
This year the schedule for Quebec Lodge has been changed.
Quebec Lodge has a Bursary Fund to assist families who can not afford the regular camp fees

Pioneer Camps

For the first time this summer Quebec Lodge is offering Pioneer Camps for ages 9-11. The Pioneer Camps have traditionally been offered just for those age 12-15 and have been very popular. Held on a small site near to Quebec Lodge these sessions include an emphasis on hiking and outdoor living. Campers take it in turn preparing the meals. Each session is limited to just 20 campers. Quebec Lodge also has a variety of sessions for those age 12-15.

Junior Camps:

First Junior will be July 3 to 9;

Second Junior will be July 24 to 30. Both Junior sessions are for ages 6-11.

A typical day includes Chapel and sports in the morning (Basketball, archery, volleyball and crafts). In the afternoon we go to the beach for swimming and canoeing. In the late afternoon we do Interest Groups: writing home, friendship bracelets, nature study. After supper there will be a special event such as a wide game, carnival or talent show. The day normally ends with a Camp Fire

Senior Camp:

First Senior will be from July 10 to 23. This session is for ages 10-13.

For the first time this year we are accepting registrations for one week if campers are not able to attend both weeks. Those attending the first week can sign up for some special daily activities including a horseback trail ride, climbing wall, an introduction to snorkeling and a river canoe trip.

Those attending the second week will have a variety of instructional options to choose from including: a horseback riding course, woodworking, crafts, sailing, watercraft, and survival skills. There is also an option called 'Brainercize' which includes a variety of games such as chess and backgammon along with various menza puzzles. All these options include four sessions. The special activities and options are in addition to the regular activities of sports, crafts, chapel, Bible Study, swimming and boating.

For all programs:

All the programs at Quebec Lodge include a daily Bible Study and Chapel. The Bible

Studies normally take place after lunch and last between ten and fifteen minutes. Chapel

lasts between forty-five minutes and one hour. It is recognized that many of the campers

do not attend church regularly and come from various backgrounds, consequently chapel

times are ecumenical and include lots of action songs and drama.

peace, love, doves LIGHT AND PEACE:

After discussions with Gretchen Pritchard, Children's Missioner at St. Paul & St. James, New Haven, Connecticut, KIDSTUFF is hoping to find a Church or Mission in our Diocese which might be interested in acting as a Pilot Parish to try out the Light and Peace program here in Montreal.

The concept of this weekday evening supper and crafts outreach program which has proven to be a real blessing in New Haven sounds as if it might be transferrable to our urban centre or perhaps to one of the larger towns in the Laurentians or Eastern Townships.

If you would like to consider participating and are seriously interested in exploring the project in greater detail, please contact Valerie Taylor

KIDSTUFF will be sending out information packages in April or May to a cross-section of parishes and ministries but we certainly do not want to overlook anyone else who might wish to be involved.
