Welcome to Whitney Lake Bible Camp website!
We run affordable summer camps for all ages. Whitney Lake is a fun community of people who love God, and sharing Him with others. Our summer missionaries are personal and excited to spend their summer with kids.
Check out this year's camps here.
If you are looking to join our team as a summer missionary, volunteer or register to be a camper, you should find the information within this website. If you cannot find the answer to a question, please contact us.
Please see below for our Covid-19 Update
We have appreciated your patience over the past weeks, as we have been determining the appropriate course of action for camp this year. The Covid-19 pandemic has presented a uniquely challenging summer for our campers and missionaries.
Based on the information that we have now, as well as the projections for the summer, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel all of our youth camps for Summer 2020.
We are so sad that we will not get to see all of the campers and parents. We hope that you will not forget about us in the next year, but rather that this break will get you and your children even more excited about returning to camp in 2021.
If your child has already been registered for camp this summer you will have received a letter via email with information regarding refund options.
While we may not be running our regular camps this summer this doesn’t mean there will be nothing going on.
We are working on a plan to have virtual camp experiences on both facebook and instagram in order to stay connected with parents and campers. We don’t know exactly what this will look like yet but we will continue informing you of what will be happening via facebook and instagram.
Many of those who were planning on serving at camp this summer have already committed to continuing to serve this summer in a different capacity. We plan to take this time to do as many of the improvements that we have been wanting to do for many years but time has not allowed it.
Our ability to do these improvements will depend on 2 things.
1. What we are allowed to do based on the guidelines set out by our provincial and federal governments. - We are continuing to monitor the restrictions and guidelines and will follow them as we work on improving the camp for next summer.
2. The availability of funds. – We have some funds set aside for the purpose of doing our regular maintenance however without any registration fees this year we are more dependent on donations to do the improvements as well as be able to bless the many missionaries who have committed their time for the whole summer with some sort of compensation.
Please continue to keep Whitney Lake Bible Camp in your prayers as we continue to navigate this exceptionally challenging summer.
