Imagine serving side by side on a dynamic team united in vision and committed to Christ and to each other. Imagine a summer that will make an eternal difference in young lives, and in your own.

Ministries

There are many service opportunities for individuals and groups throughout the summer. Each of these service opportunities fall under one of the ministry areas listed below.

Volunteer with our kitchen ministry
Kitchen Ministry

Our Kitchen Ministry happens right at the heart of camp – the kitchen! From preparing and serving meals (600+ meals a day), to doing the dishes, our Kitchen Ministry team is always buzzing. Serving in the kitchen will give you the opportunity to interact with all of the campers and staff while demonstrating the service of hospitality to all those who pass through.

Work Crew Ministry

Our Work Crew takes care of our day-to-day washing and upkeep of our facilities as camp strives to reach an excellent level of cleanliness all summer long. Serving on the work crew, you will be given the opportunity to explore and develop various skills in our maintenance shop, and you may even get to drive the lawn tractor. Some of our work crew also maintains the grounds, as well as working on building repairs and upgrades.

Volunteer with our residential camp ministry
Residential Camp Ministry

Our Residential Camp Ministry is the original ministry on which Frontier was founded. Taking in children from the Greater Eastern Township and Montreal areas, our overnight camp provides a place for campers to be loved and belong. Serving in our Residential Camp Ministry, staff will have the opportunity to directly impact the lives of campers with the love of Christ. Each day, Residential staff engage in various aspects of camp as they lead in Chapel, Cabin Devos, Campfire, Testimonies, as well as activities such as archery, sports, arts and crafts, music, waterfront, all while caring for the health and wellbeing of the campers.

Day Camp Ministry

Our Day Camp Ministry began in 2010 with only a few campers from the St-Herménégilde area. Now our Day Camp has grown to reach approximately 40-60 francophone children from the towns of Compton, Coaticook, and St-Herménégilde. Staff serving in our Day Camp Ministry can expect to be immersed in the French language all day long with campers and fellow staff members while sharing the grace and love of Christ with the children. Each day, Day Camp staff engage in various aspects of the Day Camp program including supervising bus transportation, leading in Chapel, Cabin Devos, Testimonies, as well as activities such as archery, sports, arts and crafts, music, waterfront and field trips.

Waterfront Ministry

With our 2018 waterfront design and new water inflatables, our Waterfront Ministry is growing, and becoming more involved than ever! While spending the summer by the lake, waterfront staff and lifeguards, are responsible for the daily organization of waterfront equipment, routine cleaning, as well as the overall organization and supervision of campers during activities and free time.

Chapel Ministry

With a new focus being brought to our time of worship and teaching, a new ministry team is forming. From musicians, to sound and computer techs, our Chapel Ministry team will make our Chapel time happen each day. Those serving in this ministry will learn about the various aspects of putting together a service, as well as leading music and tech lessons to the campers.

Staff Training

Every year, we have a training program for our staff to be equipped and prepared to serve at camp. This year, we're changing the way we do training in a big way! 

Although everyone is welcome to participate in our training program, it will be mandatory for some positions. All Jr Counselors, Activity Instructors, Residential Sr Counselors, Residential coordinators, and other Sr positions must attend our training week that is scheduled from June 26th to June 30thAll Day Camp Counselors, and coordinators must attend our training sessions prior to the start of Day Camp (dates TBA). 

During these times, we will be going deeper into what it means to be a vessel for Christ and what that looks like in the camp context. We will have sessions that focus on how to share the Gospel with children, how to be intentional when interacting with campers and peers, and how to lead small groups. Other topics will include anxiety, child abuse prevention, and practical skills for being a FL staff member
