Each week at Moose Lake is unique. We run programs that cater to different age groups and interests. For this reason the board members select qualified directors to oversee one week at a time. Counsellors (cabin leaders) are usually long time Moose Lakers and are hand picked by the Director in order to provide the best possible program. The profiles of the Activities Directors and Speakers can be found on the information pages pertaining to each specific camp.
Full Time Staff:
Registrar: Stacey Bacque
Stacey is our new registrar and is looking forward to having her hand in a new role, as this will be her 22nd summer at Moose Lake Gospel Camp. Over the years she has been highly involved with the youth and kids programs we offer. Working at Moose Lake is something she looks forward to each year because of her passion for kid’s & youth ministry.
Camp Director: Jeremy Bacque
Jeremy has been hired as the full-time Camp Director at Moose Lake Gospel Camp this season. This is a new position for the camp and an essential one as we seek to provide continuity from week to week, consistent leadership standards and (a position which things can be bounced off working to build camp). Jeremy and his wife Stacey have been involved as Children’s Camp Directors for the last decade and more recently Senior High Camp as well. They have a heart for leading and discipling children and youth, helping them hear God’s voice and walk in His promises for them. As MLGC transitions from weekly Directors to having Jeremy as the full-time Camp Director, Stacey will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the leadership team, as well as the kitchen and Canteen workers just to name a few. Jeremy and Stacey will have been married for 10 years this September and they have enjoyed embracing different ministry opportunities in that time, both locally and overseas. They are dedicated to their marriage and their young children, Julian and baby Greyson who will join them in the adventure this summer. Jeremy is very excited to lead MLGC into this new season, leading all the children, youth and families into God’s Word and the Holy Spirit, against the beautiful backdrop of Moose Lake.

This couple have volunteered for over thirty years at the camp. Each year Mary Del jokes that it is her last year but she is always the first to arrive and the last to leave. She pretends that Cliff drags her to camp but we know that that is far from the truth. Cliff and Mary Del have served in every position imaginable and they can be spotted playing late night games with the senior teens and in the morning they are the ones cleaning up the mess. Thanks for all your work and dedication.
