COVID-19 Protocols

Due to AHS COVID-19 recommendations there will be extra precautions taken to ensure the safety of everyone involved with summer camp this year. We will be closely following the government guidelines.

Prior to & during drop off:

  1. If you or your child is sick or not feeling well, please stay home and refrain from entering the camp space. Contact the directors to let them know.
  2. Your child’s temperature may be recorded at the time drop off before your child may enter the camp space.

Masks:

Based on COVID-19 guidelines at the time of camp will determine whether mask wearing, cohorts, and physical distancing will apply. Our staff has worked very hard to plan activities this year, we will be diligent in following the updated guideline.

Symptoms of illness present:

If at any time your child becomes ill or shows symptoms, the directors will call for their immediate pick up from the camp space. Staff will continue to monitor your child until they can be picked up.

If you have any questions regarding COVID-19 safeguards, please give Jessica a call 780-545-6340

When do we arrive?

Registration is on Sunday, July 18th between 3-4:30pm. You will find the registration tables at the main tabernacle. Parents can help campers find their cabins and meet their counselors during this time.

Orientation begins in the Tabernacle for all campers at 4:30pm.

When does camp end?

Parent/Guardian ID will be required at pick up!

Camper signout begins at 4 pm on Friday, July 23rd. Parents will sign out their kids at the tables set up outside the main tabernacle and then join us for a short program. Campers will be officially dismissed from the Tabernacle at 5:00 pm and released directly to their parents/guardian. All campers must be checked out by 5:00 pm. Following this service, families can join us for a BBQ for $5 per person (campers are free). Please let us know when you register your child how many people will be joining so we can prepare accordingly.

Can I call my camper? Can my camper call me? What about coming to camp?

All phone calls will only be allowed using the camp phone during camper phone time from 6-7pm nightly. These calls are only allowed to the number provided on the registration form. If you want to call your camper, please note they will call your back during that time, unless it is a family emergency.

If you would like to attend a service as a visitor please contact the camp directors and please check in at the main office to receive a visitor tag. When parents call or visit the camp regularly it can result in homesickness. If your child is struggling with homesickness we will be sure to contact you or allow them to call you. We want to make camp the best experience possible for your child and you are a big part of that.

I have two kids who are going to the same camp but are different ages. Can they be in the same cabin?

What if my Child has special needs? In School they have an IPP or Behaviour Plan-can they attend Camp?

While we are not a special needs camp we will do our best to ensure every camper/counselor has a positive camp experience. It is important that parents share the needs of their campers directly with the kids camp directors prior to registering for camp  charlene@lakeviewgospel.ca

The counselors and staff are volunteers with a variety of experience and backgrounds. If your child requires one on one assistance we may not be able to support them attending camp, if we do not have specially qualified or enough camp staff. We encourage you to have a discussion about your child’s needs in advance with our kids camp directors.

I have more questions?

If you have any further questions please reach out to the kids camp director at kids@lakeviewgospel.ca

Kids Camp Ministry Guests

Amy Ball & Grace MacLellan

Grace and Amy love ministering to kids, families and leaders TOGETHER! Having education and pastoral backgrounds, their passion is to make camp a place for kids to have a life-changing experience with God and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. Moose Lake Pentecostal Camp is where it all started for “Grace and Me Ministry”, and they hope to develop leaders that will love camp as much as they do!

Jessica Wakulchyk (Camp Director)

Hi, my name is Jessica! I am a wife of 18 years and I am blessed to be the mom of 4 pretty awesome boys. I love summer, beaches, traveling, shopping, family movie nights, as well as reading and knitting when I have extra time 😉

I work full time as an Educational Assistant for Northern Lights Public Schools. I have grown up in the church and have been involved in some ministry capacity since the age of 12. Lakeview Gospel Centre in Bonnyville has been our home church for the past 6 year and you’ll find me there working with our kids and youth ministries. I am very much looking forward to camp this year and can not wait to see what God has in store for your kids.

Charlene Mitchell (Camp Director)

When sitting around our kitchen table, I had mentioned that I needed to write up a bio for kids camp. My 8 year old without hesitation said “you are really nice to kids.”

So here it is, my name is Charlene Mitchell. My husband and I are currently pastoring at Lakeview Gospel Centre, Bonnyville. I have 2 beautiful daughters who are the joy of my life and I am “really nice to kids.” I have been leading and assisting in kids ministry for almost 20 years and I’m really not that old.

I love kids, love their unique personalities, love their stories and the “truth” that sometimes come out of their stories.

My heart for children is that they would have an encounter with Jesus, that they would experience Him in a way that they will never forget. It’s those unforgettable moments that will get them through the real world. I am excited and expecting great things for kids camp this year.
