To Reach Every Kid – TREK

We are excitedly looking forward to and preparing for TREK Camp 2018! TREK’s mission is in its name – To Reach Every Kid. TREK provides a loving, Christian, fun, engaging outdoor experience for kids grades 3-9. At camp, we dress up in costumes and have skits and story-themed activites in a grand allegorical story-telling theme, to communicate the Good News to the kids in a different way. Click here for more info about TREK! If you know a child entering grade 3-5 and think they would enjoy this experience, encourage them to sign up asap – we only have room left in the first week (July 9-14).

“Trek is a place where I learned to be free and open in my walk with God. I love being able to be a role model to kids as they pursue their personal journey with Christ. On top of everything we do at camp… night watch is the best!!!!”
– Matthew Hanna (Junior Staff)

In order for TREK to function every year, we rely on the generous, loving volunteers that take part every year. Counselors, Junior Staff, Kitchen Staff, Handymen, and more – as well as the lovely people who bake cookies! This year, we need 300 dozen cookies. Do you enjoy baking? If you’re willing to help out in this way, contact Edgar Wiens, or sign up at the info centre. We have ice cream buckets available to store the cookies.

Another way you can help out is with set-up and take-down! Since TREK doesn’t have a set location and is reconstructed every year, we rely on handy volunteers who come and put it together. Contact Edgar Wiens if you’re willing to take part in that – the dates are Saturday, July 7 and Saturday, July 28.

“Trek is an amazing outdoor experience that no kid will ever forget .
My own kids went there and now they are leaders which take a week of holidays from their regular job to be there As a counselor I watched how these little people have become successful professionals and as a cook I am impressed with the quality of food that this camp will serve. Every kid who likes the outdoors will have an amazing week where memories and friendships will be built that last a lifetime.”
– Ursula Ekk

TREK Camp is an amazing organization, investing in kids’ lives, and showing them God’s love. From camper to counsellor, I’ve experienced the love this camp has shown me, and in turn am able to show it to the next generation of kids. Consider donating to help TREK continue to change the lives of kids in the years to come!
