Wow! After two years of uncertainty and restrictions, One Hope Canada camps fully opened this summer. Most locations experienced record numbers of children and youth coming through their doors.
Men and women with a passion for sharing Jesus rose to the challenge of figuring out how to “do camp” again. It wasn’t easy. But it was so worthwhile.
Thousands of children and youth (and by extension, their families) heard about the hope we have in Jesus! Many made first-time decisions to follow Him.
Your generous support made stories like these possible!
Twin girls had been coming to camp for five years. When they arrived this year, however, they wouldn’t get out of the car. There had been problems at home that morning. For over an hour, I talked with their mom, who first met me when I was a new leader and she was a camper. She shared that it had been a really bad day (and a tough year) for them.
In the end, the twins agreed to stay, and throughout the week connected with God. On Friday, they shared publicly about their desire to follow Jesus. Their mom was there too, and prayed an honest, amazing prayer for them. It was an incredible moment. It is amazing the long-term impact camp has on kids and families!

Learning how to share the Gospel with children made the good news of Jesus come alive even more for me! (Summer Missionary, Sandy Cove Bible Camp, NB)
It was heartbreaking when a camper arrived on Sunday with her suitcase, in hopes of staying for the week. She was on the waiting list, but we had to tell her we were short one cabin leader, and unable to open another girls’ cabin. The next day another girl went home unexpectedly, and we were able to phone the first and invite her to return. It was so cool to see her bouncing in with the biggest smile and to hear the encouraging welcome from the girls in her cabin! A highlight: she gave her life to Christ on Thursday night! (Howard & Kathy Weir, Turtle Mountain Bible Camp, MB)
We know you are equally passionate about sharing Jesus with boys and girls in Canada. Your role is as much a part of the story as those serving on the frontlines. God is working through your generosity to lay a solid foundation in lives and hearts.
Thank you for praying. Thank you for giving. Thank you for being part of what God continues to do through One Hope Canada.
