We love the seeds of faith that the camp fosters and nurtures. The tween age is particularly challenging… and we feel the more exposure to positive Christian role models, the better.
Our kids love IAWAH – and I am grateful for the fruit it has borne in their lives. It has been foundational to their faith.
CREW had such a positive direct impact on our daughter…Please know the you are making a difference the lives of young people and how beautifully you are preparing them for the Kingdom.
My eyes have been opened to what seems to be an emerging distinctive of our ministry – leadership development…God has given IAWAH an incredible opportunity to raise up leaders.
CREW changed my life for the better and it came at just the right time to help me through a dark place.
Stages of Development
is an introduction to “How Camp Works” though practical and fun experience. Campers will still participate in all the great activities of camp, but have an opportunity to lead some activities, programs and learn from our junior camp cabin leaders. Must have completed grade 8 to participate in this program.
plants God’s truth and introduces good work habits by developing norms and foundations. Structure, basic rhythms and supervision/modelling are key.
cultivates and builds personal character. Solid foundations, personal/team challenges, opportunities to practise and serve children/youth and exposure to risk are critical. Participants can choose to learn in one of three settings: Arts, Altitude or Wild. Regardless of the focus chosen, participants will receive the same Scripture-based curriculum and will put into practise what they learn in the context of their chosen area. The camp context provides an environment for accelerating and intensifying learning. The wilderness provides a natural structure and rhythm in which to learn.
REACH (Temporarily suspended due to COVID-19)
enhances leadership skills in a cross-cultural context. Participants will further increase their understanding of service while working in partnership with the leadership team of our partner organizations: Camp La Cumbre in Costa Rica and Constance Lake First Nation Reserve in Ontario. Cross-cultural experiences challenge us to think of our role in God’s plan of redemption from a global perspective. Therefore, we will spend time learning about various ministries – including the ministry of camping – all within the context of the local culture and history.
