Summer Update

2020 Camping Season

Dear Malagash Family,

Malagash Bible Camp has served families for 50 years on the beautiful North Shore of Nova Scotia, but our 51st year will be markedly different. We are sure this will come as no surprise to you all. Given the province's prohibition of overnight camping, some decisions have already been made for us.

We are saddened to announce the cancellation of our 2020 camping season. Weekly programs like Family Camp, Beginners or Senior Teens, which are dearly loved by so many, will have to wait until 2021. This is heartbreaking for us all. Let us lean on each other in this difficult time; we are still a family.

Full refunds will be offered for any registrations already paid for. You may also choose to defer your registration to next year (saving us 4% in fees) or to donate some or all of your deposit and receive a tax receipt.

In this time of transition, we want to lean in to what exciting potential God has for us this summer. That being said, we are committed to further the ministry of MBC in this time and will not give up trying to fulfill our mission of glorifying God through Christian camping. While many details are still being worked out, our hope is to focus on the following goals which can be found in our mission statement:

  • To present the Gospel of Jesus Christ and honour Him in all we teach and do
  • To develop and equip young Christian leaders
  • To display love and caring in all we do
  • To present and teach Scriptural principles and ethics for living in today's world

This will be an unprecedented time for us financially. While we trust in God to provide, we must be realistic in expecting difficulty in the months ahead due to the loss of our entire summer camp revenue. The extent to which we can weather this storm and fulfill our mission is directly tied to the donations that come in. Now more than ever, we are reliant on your generous support, in particular the addition of new monthly donors in our Future Fifty Campaign (50 new partners giving at least $20/month).

Lastly, your prayers are deeply needed. We ask you to take some time now to pray for us as we trust God and seek a way forward.

In Christ,
The Board of Directors, Malagash Bible Camp Association
