Campfire Ministries’ is about people …
and the impact and power of God’s love through Jesus Christ to transform lives.
The Vision of Campfire Ministries is to expand the already successful summer program at CAMP BOB into a multi-season and ultimately year-round ministry
Program Goals for 2016
- To continue developing multi-season Adventure programs for school groups
- To continue developing our Adventure Challenge – OUTBOUND program, creating a back-country adventure experience for leaders and youth wanting to explore new challenges beyond CAMP BOB
Long Term Goals
- To develop a year-round Camp & Retreat Centre, fully functional for multi-season programming and activities benefitting local and First Nations communities
- To develop Missions Outreach and Day Camp programs that can be taken into outlying communities on Northern Vancouver and the BC Coast
In 2013, Campfire Ministries was awarded a 30 year NRT License of Occuptation by the Province of British Columbia for approximately 28 hectares (65 acres) of Crown Land on the north end of Roberts Lake.
This NRT includes acceptance of a long term Devlopment Plan for CAMP BOB. (Read the story under About Us: History)
