The Church Camp at Wellman Lake has offered generations of valley residents the opportunity to enjoy the camping experience. Designed for youngsters between the ages of five and fifteen, they have the chance to enjoy the joys of nature, good food, boating and water safety, wilderness training, first aid and, most importantly, the gift of making new friends. Youth volunteers learn about leadership as a counsellor-in-training.

In June there was a flurry of activity at the camp that included a general cleanup, replacing a much-needed roof, and installing a new set of doors. The camp is used by several community organizations for various events. It is the only local four-season lodge that can accomodate large groups.

The Community Foundation is pleased to have supported this youth oriented program.
