This year the Diocese of Algoma is joining the Anglican Foundation of Canada’s Say Yes! to Kids movement with our very own Diocese of Algoma Says Yes! to Camping Ministry fundraising team.

Algoma Anglicans are blessed with three camps—Gitchigomee, Temiskaming, and Manitou—all of which offer the young people in our communities one unforgettable summer in God’s creation.

A value shared by all three camps is that no child should be turned away because of their financial circumstances. Through generous bursary programs, Camps Gitchigomee, Temiskaming, and Manitou have a long history of reducing financial barriers to attending camp, but the demand grows every year.

This year, I am inviting all Algoma Anglicans to join me in building up camp bursaries so that the summer 2024 camping season can benefit as many children as possible. And for every $20 donated to our Algoma team, $4 will support the Anglican Foundation’s grants toward national youth ministries.

You can support the Diocese of Algoma Says Yes! to Camping Ministry team in three ways:

  • Celebrate a Say Yes! to Kids Sunday in your church on June 2, or any other Sunday in June, with the help of the liturgical resource developed by AFC.
  • Make a donation to our Diocese of Algoma Says Yes! to Camping Ministry team. DONATE ONLINE HERE.
  • Pray for the success of this year’s Say Yes! to Kids campaign and for youth ministries in your community, in our diocese, and across the Anglican Church of Canada.

Please give generously to Algoma Say Yes! to Camping Ministry today and help to grow a brighter future for young people in the Diocese of Algoma and beyond.

Thank you!

Archbishop Anne Germond
Bishop of Algoma and Vice-Chair, Anglican Foundation of Canada
