Cancellation of 2019 Camp Season for MLGC

Dear Moose Lakers,

On March 7, 2019, MLGC was presented with an Order to Remedy by the MD of Bonnyville, outlining a lengthy list of deficiencies that needed to be rectified before the facilities could be opened for the 2019 camp season.  These deficiencies include: electrical and plumbing upgrades, substantial kitchen upgrades, new septic system, adaptations to our well-water system, compliance with fire safety code, and the removal of all debris from our burn pile on MD land.  This has proven to be a monumental task, even though much legwork has been done in this offseason.  For this reason, the Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel the summer program at MLGC for 2019 and use 2019 as a summer fallow, to rest and rebuild the camp.

This has not been an easy decision and the Board of Directors has weighed many possibilities before coming to this conclusion through much prayer and deliberation. We, as the Board of Directors, are asking you to trust the Board in this decision and to offer your continued support of MLGC through prayer, financial support, volunteer hours, giving of resources and vocal support of MLGC (at church, in your community and on social media).

More detailed information, as well as vision for MLGC 2020 is to come.  If you have registered for camp this season, you will be contacted by our Registrar regarding information on a refund.  Please do not hesitate to contact us for any reason at all.  Contact information for Board Members can be found below.  We know this announcement will begin many conversations, and we want them to be healthy, uplifting and honouring of all that we want MLGC to represent.

The initial sting of not being able to run camp in 2019 does not outweigh the excitement and hope we have for the future of MLGC, and we know that the Lord is changing our course this year so that He might build His Kingdom in a very mighty way at MLGC for many more years to come.

Sincerely,

MLGC Board of Directors
