PROFILE: St Andrew Parish Camp

St Andrew’s Parish Camp focuses on Parish, Family, and Community/Neighbourhood. Founded nine years ago with the help of the parish, St Andrew, the camp flourished into what it is today with the assistance of other community members. It is located at St Andrew Parish Church and runs from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm on Monday to Friday.

To focus on Parish, the camp holds activities and games that explores and introduces the Catholic faith to the children. They play trivia games that help them learn about stories in the Bible. It is a fun and engaging way to help the children learn about their religion.

Camp activities include arts and crafts, cooking/baking, games, and sports. The children are able to develop their creativity, leadership, and cooperation skills through these activities. The camp also goes on trips to places like trampolines, laser tag, High Park zoo, movies, and swimming. Campers can gain valuable and memorable experiences through these trips.

The camp also values family, as it was with the help of various families throughout the years that the camp was able to become the way it is today. They will often host discussions and activities in relation to the theme of family. To develop a sense of community, firefighters were invited to present to the campers, and the camp has done cleanups around the community as well.
