Coastlands unit camp for students
going into Grade 3-8
2019/2020 school year

August 12-16, 2019

Coastlands Camp is in it’s 11th consecutive summer. Year after year, students come to Coastlands Camp and experience the best week of their summer. There are many elements of Coastlands Camp that all kids can enjoy: meeting new friends, devotionals with cabin mates, team time, crazy games, swimming in the lake, delicious meals, worship songs, prayer, learning about God, creative activities, Bible memory, and so much more.

At Coastlands Camp, we believe that God has something for everyone, and it’s our privilege to foster an environment where kids feel safe, have fun, and are ministered to.

I am a passionate people person, obsessive coffee drinker and the frequently frazzled mother of 3 busy boys. My husband and I lived, taught and ministered in the lower mainland for over 15 years but are now enjoying life on island time in Nanaimo. I have no greater passion than seeing kids lives changed by a lifelong relationship with Jesus and I have been fortunate enough to spend the majority of my adult life working with kids to see that happen. Now as the Foursquare National Children’s Coordinator I have the opportunity to work with foursquare churches across the country and support them in their efforts to reach children and families in their communities.

My child has severe allergies/medical conditions. Is it safe for them to come to Coastlands?
