Prayerfully consider how you can contribute and play a part by pledging a gift, donating now or volunteering. Find below a list of current fundraising projects, and ways to donate.
Stayner Debt Reduction
Dating back to a major lodge renovation from 2014, our mortgage comes up for renewal in early 2020. We would like to accelerate our payments, and invite supporters to contribute to playing down the principle.
“Pay Their Way” Camper Sponsorship
Sponsoring a week of camp is the perfect way to give a child a week to remember that will impact their life and faith. Our Pay Their Way program can provide funds to families who apply for sponsorship.
Mishewah Bus Service
Over the last several years, the cost of renting a bus to bring kids to camp has grown significantly, and we raised our bus fees correspondingly. Unfortunately, this made taking the bus (and ultimately, coming to camp) inaccessible to many families, and our bus numbers were quite low last summer. This summer, we are offering bus service at only $50 per camper. We acknowledge that this may come at a financial loss, but believe that giving kids the chance to come to camp is worth it! We invite you to be a part of sending kids to camp and helping us to offset these costs this summer. Help us change lives by donating toward the bus costs.
REBOOT Jr. High Retreat (September 25-27, 2020)
We are excited to be premiering REBOOT, a weekend geared toward Jr. High students. If you loved JR Pitch, you will love REBOOT, a chance for students to upgrade their faith, and pause to reboot as they journey into a new school year. We invite you to join us and donate to help us cover the upfront costs of beginning a new endeavour. We also invite you to consider volunteering to set-up, run and tear down on the weekend.
Stayner Kitchen Renovation
The bulk of the Stayner Kitchen Renovation was completed in winter/spring 2019. The much-needed update has been incredibly well-received by our kitchen staff and rental groups, streamlining work and significantly improving efficiency. Insulation of the roof is still to take place, and funds are still needed to complete paying off the costs of the project.
Mishewah Electrical Infrastructure Project
A major overhaul of our electrical infrastructure is an ongoing project. This includes moving the bulk of the power lines underground to offer protection from weather and wear, improving power to campsites and cabins, and building capacity for new cabins and other buildings.
Portable Climbing Wall
We are currently raising funds for a new, portable climbing wall for Camp Mishewah. The wall will be on a trailer, so we can transport and store it out of the harsh weather during the off season, as well as use it for camp-related events throughout the year.
EFT (e-transfers) can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your invoice number, or type of donation/payment in the notes section.
