Was summer camp a big part of your childhood? It was certainly a significant part of mine, and I hope it will be for my children too.

Enter now for a chance to win a trip for two to Punta Cana, plus free camp at any one of Inter-varsity’s four Summer Camp for kids and a Mabel’s Label’s Summer Camp Kit.

Founded in 1929, Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship of Canada and Ontario Pioneer Camp continue to be dedicated to the transformation of youth, students and graduates into fully committed followers of Jesus Christ. On university and college campuses across the country, Inter-Varsity is mentoring young people – helping them to integrate their faith authentically with all aspects of their life.

Ontario Pioneer Camp is one of a collection of Pioneer Camps that are uniquely serving their regions and communities in Alberta [est. 1940], Manitoba [1941] and British Columbia [1954]. Today, Pioneer Camps host more than 5,000 boys, girls and families each summer and have a robust Outdoor Education program through the off-season. We are committed Christ-followers, dedicated to serving others – as God would have us do – and sharing Him, in age-appropriate ways, with campers.

I love the concept of Pioneer Camps, and they sound like the perfect place to send your kids this summer. I teach my children about having Faith and being independent, but there is something about the Christian Camp experience that seems to really instill these values in children…at least that was my experience as a kid. Hearing testimonies from the same people that you enjoy a game of Capture the Flag or take horseback riding lessons with, just seems to have more impact on a kid! Summer camp also gives gives a feeling of independence that I think is really important.

This contest will give more kids the chance to have an experience like I had, and hopefully they wil enjoy it as much as I did.


This contest is open to CANADA, excluding Quebec. A full list of rules and regulations can be found:
