Camp Cancelled for 2020
Due to the recent government announcement, overnight camps will not be allowed to run, and therefore we are officially cancelling Camp Adonai 2020. While we are very disappointed in being required to make this decision, we understand under the current circumstances it is best for everyone involved. We will continue to plan for next year and look forward to normalcy. Reimbursements will be made to anyone that has already paid for the upcoming camp year in due time. We will keep everyone in our prayers as we all go through this tough time together.
Chairperson Camp Adonai
What is Camp Adonai?
Camp Adonai is a non-profit volunteer driven organization which operates a Christian summer camp for young people ranging in age from 9 to 15 years old. The camp runs for two, one week periods on the Scouts Canada Camp Opemikon camp site located on Christie Lake, near Maberly Ontario.
The camp’s purpose is to provide an environment that encourages spiritual growth and fellowship amongst young people; a balance of light Christian study, lively discussion and of course the fun and games expected at any well run summer camp.
Established in 1962 by members of the Christian Reformed Churches of Eastern Ontario, camp continues to provide young people a rich source of spiritual growth and enjoyment for more than fifty years.
Camp Adonai 2020 will be held at Camp Opemikon on Christie Lake. It is scheduled from Sunday, August 16, 2020 to Friday, August 21, 2020 (Junior week aged 9 to12), and Saturday, August 22, 2020 to Saturday, August 29, 2020 (Seniors aged 13 to 15). The camp fees are $220 and $285 respectively. This is possible only by the generous support of the Christian Reformed churches. The Board has had several meetings and continues the planning of another two great weeks of camp. Camper/Counsellor application forms are right here on the web site.
