Moose Lake Staff & Board

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.

DSC_0912.JPGRegistrar:  Stacey Bacque  

Stacey is our registrar and is looking forward to having her hand in a new role, as this will be her 23rd 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.

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 11 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, Greyson, and baby Elisia 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.

These women always fill the dining hall with laughter and song as they make the most delicious meals. Faith, as the head cook, has had the most important job at camp since the summer of 2007.





Cliff and Mary Del Mutch: 

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.

Nurse: Each week we ensure that a qualified nurse is on the grounds 24 hours a day.

Lifeguard:  Aside from Family camps, we have a qualified lifeguard on duty to ensure the protection of our children and youth during all water activities.

Wrangler: Cliff Mutch is responsible for the care of the horses and the instruction to the campers about proper trial riding skills.

Who We Are…

Founded in 1934, Moose Lake Gospel Camp is a summer camp located near Bonnyville, Alberta. We run week-long camps for kids, junior teens, senior teens, and families.

The purpose of Moose Lake Gospel Camp is to glorify God through:

  1. Spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ;
  2. Facilitating personal encounters with Jesus;
  3. Building and maintaining life-long relationships;
  4. Enjoying a holiday with a purpose;

We desire that campers will experience a safe and welcoming atmosphere and will hear a clear and practical presentation of the good news of Jesus Christ.

We aim to develop and encourage people to spiritual maturity through Bible studies, worship and fellowship. Our desire is that we can be a place where people; no matter their background; can be encouraged physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Ultimately we are a group of people that want to live in the fullness of God and share that fullness with everyone.

Statement of Faith

We Believe:

  • Verbal inspiration of the accepted Cannon of the Sacred Scriptures as originally given.
  • The Tri-Unity of the Godhead.
  • The creation, test and fall of man, as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity, and inability to attain to divine righteousness.
  • The Savior of men, the Lord Jesus Christ, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man.
  • The Gospel of the Grace of God, how that Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day for our justification.
  • The salvation of sinners by Grace alone, through faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary, by which we secure remission of sins.
  • The bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His enthronement, and His personal coming for His Church.
  • Water Baptism of believers by immersion in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • The Baptism with the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation, with the scriptural evidence; namely, speaking “with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
  • The gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12 – 14 being exercised and practiced as manifest in the early church.
  • The Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world, and the perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian Faith.
  • The healing of the body by Divine Power, or Divine Healing in its many aspects as practiced by the early church.
  • The Lord’s Memorial, commonly called, for Believers.
  • The eternal life of the believers and the eternal punishment of the unbeliever.
  • The reality and personality of Satan.
