Who will this impact?

This will impact campers as we expand our programming and facility, Covenant Bay supporters as we invite more people to join and local communities as we continue to invite families to join in our programming and grow in relationship with Christ.

When did this start and when will it end?

When did this start and when will it end?

In 2009 we began to ask questions and after many conversations and consulting our membership we came up with the direction you see today.

In 2010 we developed a document that outlined the current state of our facility and proposed construction projects that will be tools in the fulfilment of our purpose and vision. This plan has three phases and with the majority of the projects in phase 1 completed we only have our last and biggest project to complete.

Year Round Ministry

Year Round Ministry

Covenant Bay will use the new Accommodations Lodge to transition into year round ministry. The facility will be used to promote a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. This will be done by renting the facility to groups with similar purposes and to groups such as schools to help promote our own programming. Additionally we will continue to promote a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by providing retreats, camps and other programs throughout the year. To learn more about the operational plan that transitions Covenant Bay to year round ministry please contact our office at info@covenantbay.ca.
