Dear Gull Lakers,
Each year we have a campership fund to further subsidize camp fees for those that can’t afford it. We do an annual event called our “Don’t Come Fundraiser” where you pay for someone else to come to camp. Ticket prices are $155 to cover the fee of a scamper camper, $415 to cover the fee of regular week of camp, or $950 to cover the fee of an LTD student. Or, you can donate any amount that you like. Every dollar helps. I will send out thank you testimonies from campers on July 15 for anyone that contributes to this event.
Check out this link for a somewhat embarrassing video of me and find out details on a what we are doing and our new matching donor. (Shawn is in this one again too).
Grace and Peace,
We have good news! Our LTD Program is growing and we’ve been able to grow with it. We set a soft deadline of March 31st for our LTD applications this year. This deadline has passed, and the great thing is we are prepared to accept more students this year. If you know a student entering grade 10 in the fall that loves Jesus, is teachable, and is kind… please have them apply. We are beginning to review and process applications and will begin accepting students who are a right fit until our program capacity is reached.

We are so excited to introduce a new online camp store this year. Get your summer 2017 t-shirt online along with other great apparel. Order before May 26th to receive your apparel before your week of camp. Our distributor will gather orders during this time and then ship them straight to your house. The design was made by a long time Gull Lake summer staffer! We can’t wait to see you all this summer in your brand new swag! Get to the store by clicking here
We are live online! Summer Staff and LTD Applications opened January 30th and will be open until March 31st. We are looking for people who have a deep love for Jesus, are kind, teachable, and love camp. We are also look for unique talents and skills that can be put to great use in a place of endless creativity. If that is you, we’d love to hear from you. Today is a great day to apply. http://gulllakecentre.ca/staff-volunteers/
This will be an action-packed weekend full of friends, fun, & new experiences! We get to do some of the most crazy and unique things at camp. Things like luging, going on camp escapades, exploring in the forest, snow painting, and building mattress forts. The sky is the limit when it comes to fun and adventure out here.
This weekend camp is for kids in grades 4-6. It’s on March 3-5th & is $125/person. Invite your friends and register today!
We love camp so much and summer just isn’t enough for us. So yes, we’ve found ways to run camp all year round!! We run a Jr & Sr High Weekend Winter Retreat on February 3 – 5th for students in grades 7-12. There will be ice hockey, luging, wide games, session times, campfires, and time to relax and hang out with old friends and new ones. This retreat is a perfect break and way to celebrate being done school exams! Invite your friends and come enjoy life with us. $125/person.
Camp is covered in snow and it seems winter has arrived and plans to stay. Our winter LTD retreat is coming up next and will be hosted on January 20-22nd! This weekend is for LTD’s and summer staff to come back and reconnect. It’s the most chill & relaxed of all retreats. And yes quite literally. If the snow keeps falling, there will be ice hockey, (maybe) even luging, campfires, space to worship, hang out, laugh like crazy, go for a walk, and re-enter a thin space. A sacred space. A place set apart to play and pray. Can’t wait to have you all back here.
Advent Retreat – November 25 – 27, 2016
This retreat is meant to be just that – a retreat. Take a weekend by yourself, with your spouse, or with your whole family, and pause and enter the Advent season and the countdown to Christmas well. December is often such a hectic month but this retreat helps prepare us each year to sort our priorities and align our heart so that we can celebrate the birth of the Messiah with intention and reverence. There will be warm delicious food, wagon rides, carol singing, sitting by the fire, crafts, and stories. $80 per Adult, $60 for kids 4 – 17 and kids under 4 are free.
Fall LTD Retreat
One incredible aspect of the LTD Program is that it runs year-round. We’re committed to the relationships and spiritual growth journey that begins through the crazy world of summer camp. And we pour into these relationships by bringing LTD’s and summer staff back together through our retreat season.
The Fall Retreat is a time for LTD’s to reconnect and it runs Sept 30 – Oct 2nd. It’s also a time where the greater Gull Lake family comes together to cheer each other on. Our annual Adventure Race takes place on the Saturday where LTD’s run stations for racers who run an adventure fundraising race that supports the program. It’s a beautiful fall weekend we’re looking forward to.
