Timothy 1 Camp

Tim 1 is a 4 week camp that focuses on introducing young people to christian leadership.  It helps them to learn about themselves as well as introduces young people to spiritual disciplines of prayer, worship, journaling and service. Campers are mentored by peers and camp leadership, and engage in building community, serving community, and supporting the overseas mission work of The Salvation Army.

Tim1 partipants will participate in:

Algonquin Park Camping Trip
Campers will learn how to lead their peers in a wilderness camping/canoeing trip in Canada’s Jewel of the North, Algonquin Park. They will share the responsibility for cooking, camp set up, leading and community building.
Training at Newport Adventure Camp
As well as the Algonquin trip campers will stay overnight at NAC to prepare for the outtrip and partipate in team building and canoeing preparation.
Onsite training at Jackson’s Point Camp’s TimTown
Campers will live in the forest in their own tent community, TimTown, and participate in a regular program of camping, sports, and character building activities. We invite Christian leaders to provide training and mentoring for Tim 1s. They will spend time preparing for the next leg of their journey, the Urban Mission trip. As well, campers will be involved in fundraising and awareness activities supporting The Mombasa Children’s Home, a Salvation Army children’s home in Kenya, Africa.
Urban Mission Trip
We will spend a week in Ontario Cities learing about the work of The Salvation Army with those experiencing poverty. Campers will participate in service projects, and will provide leadership for a Sunday worship service. They will also participate in community activities such as praying for our neighbourhoods, and helping with programs and projects the Salvation Army offers.

Timothy 1 participants will leave this program with an appreciation for the ministries of The Salvation Army locally and globally as well as an an experience serving others, and coming to an understanding of who they are in their relationship with God through Jesus.
