Family Programs

-  family camps   -  service events -

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.

  • Dad+Kids Camping Weekend

    Sep 14-16, 2018

    $150/adult   $75/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.

    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. 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 integrated bible study designed to help you use the outdoors to engage your kids, friends, even your dads in faithful conversation.

  • Family Advent Retreat

    Nov 9-11, 2018

    $150/adult    $80/kid      max $400/family


    With Rev Daranne Harris, Calgary

    Join us at this retreat for families and congregations.

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

    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.
