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

The Challenge We Are Facing

This year Moose Lake is celebrating 85 years of ministry. During that time, we have seen God use MLGC to do amazing things in and through the lives of people. Our vision is to continue to share the love of Jesus Christ for generations to come.

This year we are facing a major challenge. In October 2018, The Municipal District of Bonnyville walked through our campground and found deficiencies that concerned them. We have been actively meeting with the inspectors and have had several phone calls with the MD of Bonnyville regarding their inspection. On March 7, 2019, the Board received an “Order to Remedy” which outlined several infrastructure upgrades that they are requiring us to complete before we can run camp this summer. While the Board continually seeks to make the short-term improvements needed year after year, as well as establish a long-term strategic plan to fund major projects such as new bathrooms, the MD has made it clear that unless Moose Lake Gospel Camp is brought into compliance before the 2019 camp season, we will not be allowed to host camp.

The Board feels that we have a very large mountain to be moved. We believe that our God moves mountains, but we also need your help. Your support is crucial to Moose Lake’s efforts to continue its ministry. You can help us by:

  1. Praying for this situation;
  2. Making a financial donation;
  3. Donating your skills and/or connections (Specifically, we are looking for surveyors, mechanical engineers, certified plumbers, certified electricians, HVAC, heavy equipment and operators, and other skilled trades);
  4. Attending the May Long Weekend Work-bee on May 17-20, 2019, and any other additional work-bees to implement these upgrades. Please check back for any updates that may be posted.

With respect to funding the above endeavors, several Moose Lake families have committed to matching, dollar for dollar, donations made to the camp, up to a grand total of $20,000. For donors under the age of 21, a minimum $100 donation will be matched. Likewise, for donors ages 21 and over, a minimum $200 donation will be matched. For example, if 75 donations are made for $200 each, the resultant sum of $20,000 will be matched, totalling a donation of $40,000 to Moose Lake Gospel Camp!

We thank you in advance for your contribution. Here are the ways you can make a financial donation:

9004 153 Ave, Edmonton, AB, T5Z 3L6

What:

Moose Lake Gospel Camp invites children and youth to Rocky Railway Day Camp: Jesus’ power pulls us through.

A summer Day Camp called Rocky Railway will be hosted at Moose Lake Gospel Camp. At Rocky Railway, kids discover through life’s ups and downs that Jesus’ power pulls us through. Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, take part in one-of-a-kind Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them to trust Jesus, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. We will also be including traditional camp activities such as beach time, canoeing, campfires, and canteen. Each day concludes with the Rock Wrap-Up that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.


Please refer to our Commonly Asked Questions for a ton of information regarding how our day camps will be facilitated!



CommonCampQuestions

WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT COVID?

We will be doing DAILY SCREENING for COVID-19 of EVERYONE every time someone enters the property.  As everyone is accustomed,  if your camper has any symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat) please keep them at home as they will not be allowed at camp.  Parents/guardians will be asked to check temperatures daily, and report to camp staff.

Your child does not have to wear a mask. The day camp regulations states that a cohort can be 50 people. We plan to have up to 2 cohorts, and if this is the case, any staff who interacts with both cohorts will be required to wear a mask.

We have multiple locations where hand-washing can be facilitated, as well as hand sanitizing stations. Your child will be instructed to wash their hands throughout the day.

 WHAT WILL DAY CAMP LOOK LIKE?

All campers will be assigned to a ‘cabin group’ with a cabin leader. Our daily schedule will involve groups moving around to different stations throughout the day; incorporating our traditional camp activities such as chapel, beach, canteen, and campfires.

We will be using a Day Camp Curriculum called Rocky Railway. At Rocky Railway, children and youth discover through life’s ups and downs that Jesus’ power pulls us through. Campers will participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, take part in one-of-a-kind Bible Adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them to trust Jesus, and test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. In addition, campers will learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God-Sightings. Each day concludes with the Rock Wrap-Up that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned.

WHAT IS YOUR PLAN FOR MEALS?

Children & Youth Camps: We will not be providing meals. We are asking that all children come with a packed lunch that does not need to be refrigerated. This allows for us to comply with COVID-19 regulations.

We will be providing your child with a packaged snack during the morning, as well as opening up our “Canteen” (Camp Store) to all campers.

Preschool/Kindergarten Camp: We will not be providing meals. We will be providing your child with a packaged snack during the morning.

MY CHILD NEEDS MEDICATIONS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

All medications will be turned in to the camp nurse at check-in each morning. The camp nurse will be located at the drop-off location each morning (which is visible as soon as you come onto the grounds).

HOW DO I DROP MY CHILD OFF?

Once you turn onto the road which leads to the Campground, you will be directed by staff and signage directing you to the Camper Drop-Off Location.

Family Camps

At MLGC, your family has the opportunity to explore the wonders of God in a beautiful setting, while participating in worship and learning from some top quality speakers. No matter which camp you choose, or if you come to both our planned camps, you can be sure it will be a memorable experience for you and your family. We understand the importance of providing lots of free-time so you can choose the pace of your week. Some like to relax on the beach, while others take advantage of the wide variety of activities that we offer. Usually the greatest encouragement comes from other families participating together in fellowship, edification, and support, or just a god belly laugh around a camp fire.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to offer OVERNIGHT camps at this time; and thus, are unable to offer Family Camps for this year. We are deeply saddened by this reality, but must comply with the restrictions and regulations given to us by our government.
