Calling all build volunteers!

Construction on the last two cabins is a go! We will be building during the first two weeks of May. If you can help us out for a day, a few days, or a week or more, please email Scott today. Experience is welcome but not necessary. We will also need volunteers to prepare meals for the builders on site, so if you're able to help out in any area, let us know!
Marlee's Story: Non-Camp Person to Board Member in 10 years

In the spring of 2010, as I was planning my 2 daughters, Kodi & Kyrn, summer adventures, I asked them if they would be interested in attending Camp Hermosa at the end of August to wrap up our Summer. Our Pastor, Alex Moir was a huge advocate, and I knew Zach was directing this particular week of Jr. High so I thought this might be a great opportunity for the girls to go while still having a familiar face there. They were still uncertain, so I contacted Zach to see if they were in need of help for that week and they were still looking for a cabin Leader for Girls cabin #6! So, this 38-year-old mother of 2 teenage girls committed to spending a week with 8 more teenage girls in a small cabin for her week of vacation with the plan being that they became camp lifers!

Guess what?? It worked!! They loved it had a great week and continued attending and eventually leading themselves. The unexpected part was that I DID TOO!!! I had a great week, met great people, grew my faith and made lifelong friends.

I have been back every year for the Jr. High week volunteering as a Craft Leader and Extra Supervision (thankfully they realized for the Old Lady that leading a cabin was probably not the best place to use my skills! LOL!) Even a year filled with Chemo couldn’t keep me from Hermosa! Last year I was even asked to join the Board of Directors. What a humbling honour to even be considered... And what a year to join Board too!!!

This Camp Family has been a gift to me these last 10 years and now I can’t wait to see the next generation of our family go to camp in a few years too!
Register for Summer 2021
We opened registration a few weeks ago because we know how much kids will need a safe place to connect with their friends, and we're excited about coming together again this summer. While we wait for more guidance from the provincial government and local health unit regarding what our summer will look like, we will continue to refine our protocols and recruit and train our volunteers so that you can be assured that we are ready to go! In the event that camps are once again cancelled due to COVID-19, you will receive a full refund for any fees paid.

We anticipate having to run at a lower capacity this summer, so be sure to register early. We miss you and can't wait to welcome you back to Camp Hermosa this summer! 
Register for summer 2021 today!
