Family Programs

-  family camps   -  service events -  fundraising activities -

Shared memories help families to stay together, especially when busy lives keep us apart so often. Camp is a great place for everyone to enjoy as individuals and as families. There are many ways for your family to get involved and to help support the ministry of Kuriakos.

  • - kids of all ages - grandparents - singles - blended families - empty nesters -

    Give your family a unique opportunity to play, worship, learn, and grow together. Enjoy activities of all kinds, worship, and delicious food, with faith integrated into all aspects of life at camp.  Staff support each camper as role models and friends.

  • Dad+Kids Camping Weekend

    Sep 29 - Oct 1, 2017

    $150+gst/adult   $75+gst/kid     max $300/family

    Want to work on your camping skills with your kids?  You can at Kuriakos!   (with the comfort of knowing that if it really rains, you can also sleep in the  dorm).  Work on your fire building, outdoor cooking, packing, and shelter building skills. Try packing a canoe, identifying forest flora, or navigating your way around the wild. Spend as much time as you can outside, but if someone really needs a nap inside, that's ok.

    Hosted with the Men's Retreat, this program is designed for families to learn together, so you can put these skills to use after camp too.  All kids, aged 7-18 are welcome to attend with their dad. If your son is 42, no problem.  All men over 18 are welcome.  Some friends are like family too, so grab a couple and be a family for the weekend, learning to adventure together.

    You can expect campfires, worship, and intergrated bible study designed to help you use the outdoors to engage your kids, friends, even your dads in faithful conversation.

  • Family Advent Retreat

    November 10-12, 2017

    $150+gst/adult    $80+gst/kid      max $300/family

    Join us at this new retreat for families and congregations.

    Congregations are encouraged to bring their Sunday School participants and leaders.


    This year's theme, Why Wait?, focusses on the reasons for Advent, and will help us to prepare for Christmas with our congregations and our families.  You'll leave Kuriakos with resources for sharing Advent with the rest of your congregation, and a plan for how to live out this season of preparation within your family.


    This retreat is intended to enrich faith and worship, providing support for practicing Advent.  It's a chance for families to become involved in worship, and for congregations to share ideas.  Enjoy a weekend Set Apart to be Together as your family and congregations still and settle for a season of waiting and anticipation.
