Our Mission

LBCM Koinonia Camp is about creating a Godly and stimulating environment for our young people to learn and play together. We want to see our young people motivated by an invigorating journey that focuses on personal and leadership development. Young people will experience engaging activities and amazing Bible stories.

“Train a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not turn from it” (Proverbs 22:6)

KOINONIA CAMP has 2 tracks: CHILDREN TRACK (JK-Grade 4) and LEADERSHIP TRACK (Grade 5-8)

CHILDREN TRACK For students currently in JK (Age 4)-Grade 4, limited enrollment of 35 per week!

This Children Track focuses on helping your children develop healthy social emotional skills. In a child-friendly and fun environment, children will learn how to interact with other people, and understand and control their own emotions.

  • Character Building: Using Biblical principles, children will work on developing Trust, Love, Forgiveness, Humility, and Courage.
  • Tutoring: We have partnered up with *Paideia Learning Centre to provide tutoring classes. Subjects will include math, science, and nutrition.
  • Stations: Children will learning different skills by engaging in four different stations: Bible and character building, arts and crafts, recreation and sports, and life skills.

During these fun-filled weeks, our goal is to help your children become responsible, faithful, and purposeful Godly citizens.

*At Paideia Learning Centre, our mission is to provide a safe learning environment for children to explore, learn and grow to reach their full potential. Each week, your child will be learning about Math, Science or Nutrition in fun and practical ways that will be unforgettable! Topics are based on the Ontario curriculum, and each lesson is uniquely designed to make the learning experience meaningful and enjoyable. We look forward to being part of your child’s education journey this summer! For more information, please contact paideialearningcentre@gmail.com

LEADERSHIP TRACK For students currently in Grade 5-8, limited enrollment of 25 per week!

Our Leadership Track provides students currently in Grade 5 to Grade 8, with the opportunity to understand, develop, and exercise their personal and leadership abilities, as well as spiritual growth through indoor and outdoor activities. This year, we will focus upon team dynamics and knowing our strengths and weaknesses in group environments.

Personal Development occurs through basic life skills training, fitness improvement, building self-awareness/confidence, learning to take the initiative in situations, maintaining situational awareness, understanding our personality types and different ways we like to help others, as well as overcoming obstacles encountered.

Leadership Development occurs through the development of gifts and abilities as well as the practice of them, volunteer experiences, time management exercises, team building skills, verbal and non - verbal communication growth, and opportunities to put what they have learned by spearheading initiatives related to the Koinonia Camp.

Spiritual Development occurs through daily worship, scripture reading, take home challenges, and thoughts to reflect upon in their day to day lives.
