Camping is a vital and important ministry in The United Church of Canada. For over 85 years, people of all ages and stages of life have come to United Church camps to live in community, develop leadership skills, experience the outdoors, have fun, and deepen their faith in God. Within the Eastern Ontario Outaouais Regional Council 12 there are residential and day camps offering the camp experience to all. This important ministry is part of the larger Youth and Young Adult Ministry within the region and works to connect camps with campers. For further information click on the links below.
