The event includes carols, bonfires, hot cider, and cocoa, with skating and sledding (weather permitting).

We live in a winter wonderland, and we love the message of Christmas,” says camp director Tom McIntosh.

It’s a great gift we’ve received from God, and we want to give that gift to others. People love our beautiful setting.”

The free family event will feature sing-along carols that focus on the message of the Bible, with lyrics projected on screen, and there will be a Christmas story reading for children, McIntosh explains.

It was the desire of our team to bless anyone interested in coming.”
