Each summer, approximately 60,000 campers attend a Christian camp in BC. The Fellowship of Christian Camps - BC represents 45 camps, and since the COVID-19 pandemic was announced, camp directors from across the province have been meeting regularly via Zoom to encourage each other and to share ideas.

We would love it if you would take 4 or 5 minutes to complete the following survey to help us all better understand your thoughts regarding camp, especially in light of the uncertainty surrounding programming this summer. We believe your input will help us make better decisions going forward.

Thank you!
