Day Camp (Schedule 2005)
DAY CAMPS 2005
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.

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.
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.
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
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.

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.
