Alive & Well: CCI/Canada Atlantic Region Spring Conference

Kevin Strout and I had the opportunity last week to attend some meetings as a part of the CCI/Canada Atlantic conference. The conference was held at Greenhill Lake Camp near Mactaquac, New Brunswick.

We attended several sessions led by Rev. Dr. Terry Atkinson, Senior Pastor of Brunswick Street Baptist Church in Fredericton. He covered a broad range of issues pertaining to camp leadership and management. He focused for us, on some very important issues regarding team building and operations. The sessions involved interactive discussion with the directors and leaders of various other Bible Camps in our region and were very informative. It was a real blessing and encouragement to learn some very practical skills specific to our ministry.

Both Kevin and I were encouraged to meet some other people in our area involved in Camping Ministry. We hope to stay in touch with these folks over the coming months and years as they will have some valuable insights for us as we work to develop the camp. We also enjoyed seeing the facilities at Greenhill Lake, they have a beautiful facility and it certainly got our creative juices flowing.

Greenhill Lake Camp "Where Christ is Made Known"

The chapel at Greenhill Lake Bible camp is a renovated church
that was moved onto the property. There are bunk, shower and washroom
facilities in the basement where we stayed.
