Camper letters

Hi mom I'm having a great time at camp everyone is nice and I've made at least 3 friends since I've got here. My camp leader is nice and cool. After I got through the first night I realized camp wasn't too bad. Right before I wrote this we did a huge climbing wall, and it felt like it was 40 degrees! The food has been great! This morning I ate 4 pancakes covered in strawberry sauce! I also ate 6 sausages! The catholic things aren't bad at all to be honest I kinda like the way that they do things here and hopefully I can come here next summer! Tell Dad, and Everyone I said "hi". Talk to you tomorrow! Love you guys!

I liked the low ropes because we had to figure out how to work together as a team.

~

I get more out of camp for a week than I do out of church for a year. There's something special about what camp is doing. You connect at camp because you get chances to talk, and share stories, and remember things.

There's a warmth. It's so Christ-filled. You can see it in the way everyone welcomes each other.

Parent Letters

First of all, [our children] had an excellent week at camp. From the bottom of my heart, thanks to you and the rest of your staff for the prayerful leadership, dedication, and compassion you showed to them. Your ministry is so important!

Again, thanks for all your hard work and sleepless nights - you are a blessing!

Our daughter has been richly blessed by Camp Kuriakos - as a camper for  9 years followed by 2 years as a SIT, Gapper and Kitchen Staff. We are so thankful for the Christian education and fellowship she received at camp and the strong moral compass that guides her today.

With deepest gratitude for all you do.

Hello, my son had a really good time at Kuriakos this year and grew in his faith while he was there. Thank you! Does Kuriakos have a church in Calgary you are affiliated with or do some of your counsellors attend a particular church? Thanks for your help.

~

She enjoyed the Camp so much and is now very enthused about Kuriakos. Partly because we have a deep family connection to the Camp but also because of the great program + the wonderful staff. Kudos to all of you. She attended 2 other Bible Camps this summer but her favourite is Kuriakos and she has great plans to be a volunteer when she's a bit older. Thanks agian for everything. You do a great job.

~

We just wanted to say thank you for running a great camp! [Our camper] had a wonderful time and we are sure she learned lots of great things from your programs. We hope to enrol her again next year.

Staff Letters

Our family members have greatly benefited as campers, Servants in Training, Counsellors, and staff, and have developed leadership skills through servant activities at Camp Kuriakos. Keep up the good work... you are all servants for Christ!

~

Camp is a good example of what can happen when people are willing to open their hearts and minds to each other, and get past the expectations that we have for each other. Camp helps people get past whatever is holding them back, and find that we are all connected.

Best job I'll ever have!
