Introduction and Purpose

In 2017, the Camp Hermosa Annual Meeting in Listowel approved a Strategic Plan (2017-2022) that includes a Vision, Mission and Core Values. (posted on website)


In 2020, the Camp Hermosa Board of Directors created a committee to review these foundational Core Values. This group of Christian believers cherish a personal and growing experience of Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord at the heart of our faith. This team is reviewing historic documents, Biblical teachings, and we are seeking perspectives from active Camp Hermosa stakeholder groups and supporters.


The purpose of this short and anonymous survey is for us to get your feedback regarding your experiences with Camp Hermosa, and to share your views and insights about the core values that should guide us as an organization. In some instances, you may be providing this information as a parent/sponsor of younger campers and we value your and their perspective as well.


The committee will use this information to determine whether the Core Values should be updated and, if so, to make a recommendation about the Core Values to the Camp Hermosa Board of Directors.


Thank you for participating!
