ANBC Summer Camp Outs

Every summer we take a small group of teens on an off site camp out as a way to build into their lives in a more intentional discipleship focused way. We've found these to be profoundly useful camps and have seen some excellent results through them. This past summer, along with 3 volunteers, I took a group of teens camping in Cape Breton and then the following week another group (with some overlap) to Brier Island. For our second camp the intention was to camp at Kejimkujik National Park, but due to forest fires in the area we adjusted and went to Brier Island instead. Without a truck we were a little uncertain how our camp outs would work - but we had a friend of the camp loan us his truck for the Cape Breton trip and then we decided to only take a small group of guys for the second trip to Brier Island. At the end of the summer everything worked out for the best!

Both of these camps were wonderful opportunities and we continue to value them as extensions of our summer camp ministry here at Arrowhead.

One of my favourite things is to cook the breakfast!

We hiked half the island one day - our destination was that lighthouse in the background. It was a beautiful hike, we were all well tired that night. 

God's creation is beautiful.
