Mill Creek Baptist Camp has been a special place, an important week, in so many of our lives as we grow up. The opportunity to reconnect with God in nature, be challenged to think about life and how we live it, and make friends that journey with us - this has been and will continue to be Mill Creek. Over the decades camp has been funded by individuals who have seen the life changing value of the camp and have invested their money into the lives of young people in our communities. Over this time the cost of running a camp has gone up - increase in food costs, staffing costs have increased as university tuitions have gone up, and general running of a camp from insurance to brochures is increasing. With costs per camper going up and the number of campers attending growing each year - it is essential that you invest in these campers lives this year to continue to see the same return in our communities and in our churches.
We strive to keep our registration costs affordable for all, and because of this effort, registration fees only cover half of our total operating costs. This means the other half of our operating budget needs to be raised through individual support, church support and government funding.
Summer 2013 we will be needing $60,000 in donations for operating costs. As of last year we have repaid all loans. One time donations are essential and you can give on line by using the donation tool in the right column. However, we would like you to consider standing behind the camp and supporting us by becoming an automatic monthly donor. If every supporter of the camp dedicated giving $1 a day in promised donations we could operate in a feasible manner and have extra money for improving buildings. It is easy to become an automatic donor, click here to download the single page sheet to be filled out and mail it to the camp, or contact the camp office for more information. Becoming an automatic donor does not mean you are legally bound to the agreement, you can cancel or change your amount that you are giving at any time.
Mill Creek is a registered charity and all donations are eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
Donations can also be sent by cheque to:
