On August 7th, our church administrator, Pearl is participating in a one-day 18km pilgrimage and fundraiser for Camp Douglas. You can support the ministry of Camp Douglas by sponsoring Pearl on her journey.
The Camino de Santiago in Spain is one of the most significant Christian pilgrimage routes and is traditionally traveled on foot. Borrowing from that tradition, the Camp Douglas Camino is a mini (one-day) pilgrimage and fundraiser. Participants take a morning ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale Terminal. From there, we walk to camp, pausing along the way for prayer, scripture reading, and reflection questions. At camp, we will rest, share dinner together, and gather for chapel.
Donations can be made two ways:
1: online through CANADAHELPS.ORG https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/camp-douglas/
In the message box enter: “sponsoring Pearl from St. Paul’s”
2: through your regular offering – be sure to mark CAMP DOUGLAS on the subject line of your cheque.
Summer camp is a fantastic place for children to gain experience and confidence. Camp Douglas provides a challenging and safe program in a Christ-centred environment helping to foster an appreciation for God’s creation and to equip Christian leaders for the future.
