As you have been made aware, the 2019 camping season of MLGC has been cancelled due to the many items that need to be upgraded on the campgrounds.  The board is hoping to be able to do as many of the upgrades with volunteer labor to keep our costs down.   The board’s prayer is that we can come together as a community of Moose Lakers, put our shoulder to the wheel and get the work done.

We will be hosting our a second workbee on the campgrounds, from June 7th-9th.  However, with the Order to Remedy in place, we are not allowed to use any of the infrastructure of the camp until all deficiencies have been corrected and passed inspection. This includes cabins, electricity, bathrooms, and water.  We have been given permission by the Municipal District of Bonnyville to allow volunteers to bring self contained trailers and tents onto the campgrounds in order for us to accomplish the work that needs to be done. A number of generators will be on the campgrounds for trailers, charging power tools, etc. We will have an outdoor kitchen in order to feed volunteers with some large tents that Moose Lake is being blessed with by another charity. If you want to come for the workbee but not able to camp, please contact us and we will see what we can set up for you. If you are able to bring a trailer and have room to share your trailer space with other volunteers, that would be so appreciated. Showers are available in Bonnyville at the swimming pool for a small cost. We are truly going back to the roots of the early years of MLGC.

We love to have families at camp, however as the campgrounds are being deemed a construction site please plan towards that end.

Meals will be provided on Saturday, Sunday and Monday breakfast and lunch. We ask each family to bring the following items:

5 gallon jug(s) of drinking water for meals and personal use
Baking for breakfast: muffins, danishes, loaves, etc. OR
Baking for desserts; cookies, cakes, squares, etc.
Please bring your own snack foods: pop, chips, etc.

Other items to bring to this weekend are:

Work gloves
Construction tools
Battery operated power tools

Chainsaw if you have one
Shovels and rakes
Lawn chairs
Warm clothing
There will be ongoing workbees throughout the next number of months. Some will be formally organized and others not. We have a volunteer point person on the campgrounds for most of May and June. If you are available any time to come out to Moose Lake, we will put you to work. Please contact any of the board members and we can get you organized.There is work that does requires skilled trades people, i.e., plumber, gas fitter, electrician and surveyor, so if you are aware of such trades people willing to work for camp, please let a board member know.
Please RSVP for the workbee.   This will help us ensure we are ready for anyone coming onto the campgrounds. Please register here: Register for Workbee 

We as the Board of Directors have tremendous hope for the future of Moose Lake Gospel Camp and we are excited to get to work.See you at camp,MLGC Board of Directors

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

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. We have two great weeks of family camp planned, no matter which week you choose, or if you come to both, 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 that you can choose the pace of your week. Some people like to relax on the beach and others take full 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 good belly laugh around a camp fire.
