Why donate to Sparrow?? Support one of the many projects underway at camp this spring, and into the summer!
Help us and celebrate Canada's 150th !
That was then, this is now, what is next?
As we reflect on much of our history together, Sparrow is looking back to best inform how to move forward. We will continue the traditions that have made our camp a success for over a century. One way we hope to show our reverence for the past, and our vision for the future, we will be displaying "Then, Now, Next" features that will highlight infrastructure, stories and hopes from the past and how we are returning glory, and function to our beautiful camp.
Producing the Leaders of our future!
Sparrow Lake United Church Camp is rich in tradition and history and is celebrating 105 years of traditional camping programs this summer. We believe that our success is a product of our continuing investment in leadership, and we will continue to carry this as core to our mission of success and longevity of our storied camp.
In conjunction with the Canada 150 celebration, we are piloting a new Leadership program for young leaders 14 years of age. This program looks to be a feeder program for our month-long Leader (LIT) and Counsellor in Training programs (CIT).
We are going to plant 150 trees on July 1st a generous donation through the Canadian Camping Association.
Sparrow Lake Camp has maintained most of the original buildings from the original purchase back in 1912. Most notably the Directors Cabin which is the oldest building on Sparrow Lake. You can also see from the many camp photos in 1951 where campers are sitting on the steps of the same cabins used today!
The leaders cabin is still alive and well but tired.
The Directors Cabin has required vital repairs to fix extensive water damage. In the process we have improved the facilities, functionally doubled the hygiene facilities!!
All donations are welcome!
Thank you for your continuing support of our camping family! We are hoping canada 150 celibtrations will inspire donations of $150 in
