The All Saints Camp society board, following my recommendation and the advice of BC’s dean, Fr. Michael Fourik, decided that it would be best not to go forward with camp this year, in response to an urgent need to redistribute the work of organizing camp in order to make this essential process more sustainable. Instead, the camp society will work this year towards restructuring this process and transitioning to BC’s new Societies Act. If a suitable volunteer base can be established, we are hoping to be able to proceed with camp in early summer of 2018.
Fr. Justin Hewlett, camp priest,
All Saints of North America Orthodox Christian Camp.
A huge thank-you to all who have volunteered to serve at camp! We have enough. (Though we still might need a few more volunteers if we get quite a few more campers… so if you were thinking of applying to volunteer and haven’t done so yet, please do so!) It looks like it’s going to be a great camp!
We also have quite a few campers signed up already… but don’t worry if you haven’t applied yet. There’s still room! Still, space is limited, so, if you haven’t signed up yet, sign up today!
An information meeting about volunteering for camp will be held
Saturday, June 4th at 4:00pm
at St. John of Shanghai Orthodox Church
Anyone interested in volunteering for camp – or even just learning more about our camp – is strongly encouraged to attend.
Camper Registration is open here: www.allsaintscamp.ca/register-online
Apply to be a volunteer here: www.allsaintscamp.ca/staff-pages
As Great Lent draws to a close and we are considering how we can best use the gifts and talents and time that God has given us to best serve Him and His children, please consider volunteering to serve His children at camp this summer.

Dates for All Saints Camp 2016 have been confirmed! We’re planning on
July 19-24, 2016
at our usual location, Seven Springs Ranch in Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island. (Staff should plan to come one day earlier: July 18-24.)
This is a bit later in July than normal, but will allow those on the Julian Calendar to enjoy camp outside of the Apostle’s Fast as well.
Camp is done for the year now, but the memories live on. Here are a few of the photos that have been shared with me so far… I’m always up for receiving more!
Camp is almost here! It’s July 7-12.
There is still room. Sign up now!
In my haste to get the good news out by e-mail, I forgot to get the good news out by blog-post too… Let me fix that.
We made it!
On Sunday evening, when I counted up the number of camper registrations, they came to 34 – four more than the minimum we set for going ahead with camp! And, not only do we have enough campers, we have also been blessed with a full complement of staff. It’s gonna be great!
I should also mention that we still have space for more campers – so if you know anyone out there who would be interested in signing up, please get them to sign up too. The more, the merrier! And, as always, keep our camp in your prayers.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
Love in Christ,
Remember, we need thirty (30) campers signed up by June 7th.
Well, June 7th is coming soon, but I’m pleased to report that we are getting close! 18 registrations so far… Spread the word! If you know kids who are interested in (or planning on) going to camp, let them know that they have four days left to save $30 (per kid!) and help ensure camp goes forward!
