Christ Church Deer Park’s Children & Youth Ministry Presents

Compassion Camp

Aug 23-27,  9am -12pm

Compassion Camp. Be LOVED. Be KIND. Be YOU.

As we look around the world, what becomes clearer each day is our deep need for compassion – now more than ever. Compassion Camp’s goal is to cultivate compassion for each other, ourselves, and the world.

Each day of the week we will discuss a different way to see and welcome others, foster kindness along the way, and love in the world.

We will also sing together, explore our creativity through arts and crafts, and laugh and grow playing games and group building activities.

Who is it for? ages 6-11

What does it cost? $75 for each child, and $50 for any subsequent children from the same household

What about COVID? If the city steps back in its reopening measures, we will have to move this program online. If that happens your child will receive a take-home package to enjoy all these activities at home with us on zoom.

Safety? All of our leaders and volunteers have passed a police check, and have been trained in working with children.

Do we need to be Christian? No! We will certainly be talking about Christian content, but our themes and activities are universal. You don’t need to know anything about Christianity to join us.

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
