WHO WE ARE
Camp Promise is an after school program for the children and youth living in the neighbourhood of Bethel Community Church, in the older east end of Barrie, Ontario. Recognizing that the hours between 3:30 and 6:30 pm are the most vulnerable for children and youth, especially for those who may be otherwise under-supervised in their after school time period, Camp Promise desires to provide a safe and meaningful place to come for homework help, to make some new friends, have a ton of fun with music, games, sports and other great activities, learn about God, the Bible and a little more about what their purpose is in this big old world. Camp Promise is excited about spending time and building healthy relationships with those aged 5 - 14 years from elementary schools surrounding our site at 128 St. Vincent Street! Fun, learning and adventure are our focus and all are welcome to come and check things out and join in!
*** Saturday smaller group adventure days will be available by invitation and the opportunity to come to church on Sundays with our interns is open to children, youth and their families each week!
Camp Promise leaders are youth and adult volunteers who have been chosen through an application and interview process. Each one has obtained a Vulnerable Sector Police Check and come with a wide variety of experience in the fields of education, child and youth work, summer day camp, early childhood education, nursing and special education.
