At Pearce Williams Christian Centre Summer Camp & Retreat Facility, our aim is to provide the best summer camp experience for your child.  Pearce Williams strives to do this in a non-competitive, caring way, allowing your child to discover the world around them, while promoting success, self-confidence and self-esteem in a safe, secure and stimulating environment, while living and growing within our Christian community.

The emphasis is always on participation, effort and attitude!  We feel that camp is a unique place where every child can be a winner.  We provide campers with the opportunity to become part of a family, where they can take healthy risks, get rewarded for successes and develop self-esteem and life skills.  In the meantime they will learn about independence, interdependence, tolerance, responsibility, friendship and loyalty.

It is at summer camp that they learn to take risks, learn to resolve conflicts in a natural manner, learn to appreciate and protect our environment, learn to stay healthy, learn to be responsible for their personal belongings, and learn to have fun with unabashed enthusiasm.

Every Child Deserves a Week at Camp

The last week of summer camp has begun! 


Youth Camp.png

Youth week has begun with our oldest campers! The theme is colour wars with the colours being blue and yellow. Campers will compete through out the week in mini special events to gain points for their teams. Water events may be happening on Thursday this week to gain tons of points.

We are so happy to be spending this week at camp and with all the amazing campers but we are sad to see the summer end. We strive to make this week the most amazing yet.

Check back tomorrow! 

Special Event Day

Melody Walker

Today was the great battle of Pearce Williams. Giants, Wizards and Elves competed in many challenges to gain territory of camp.

Today for special event day camp was broken into species,giants, wizards and elves. They competed in several competitions to gain land of Pearce Williams. Each had a disadvantage, giants had to stand on their tippy toes, elves were on their knees and wizards had to say everything twice. One of the challenges was to discover who out of the staff members was telling the truth about what a random object was. Campers enjoyed this game a lot and wanted to continue playing it. 

Tonight we had a wacky feast in which random utensils were used. Tiny utensils, giant utensils and everything in between. We had someone eat with a whisk, ice cream scoop and a ladle. Our fun continues tonight and we don't want the week to end.

Check back soon to see what happens.

Chapel Time!

Melody Walker

Everyday we host chapel in which campers will sing religious upbeat songs.


#ChapelTime.png

Chapel is a camper favorite. We sing several upbeat songs to express our religious values. Classics like Pharaoh, Pharaoh and I just wanna be a sheep are sung almost daily. Other songs like More Love were written here at camp. We try to write a new camp song every year to go along with our camp theme for the summer. We also usually perform a bible story skit and have an activity. Today we asked questions about the bible. 

Camp has overall been going great. Campers enjoyed immersive night and continued to enjoy sessions today. Tomorrow is our special event day as well as wilderness canoe trip. If it storms we will be doing some amazing inside activities and cardboard boat racing.

Tomorrow a blog post will be up to talk about special event day!

The Satchel and the Sword..png

Pearce Williams is a magical place full of surprises. Anything can happen. Giants,Wizards and Elves have entered Pearce Williams and we are prepared to have an eventful fun time with them this week. Satchel and the sword was a game to see who would be the dominant species on the land. Team dragon became victorious. Games promoting this adventure will continue throughout the week.

Immersive night is tonight and every camper is excited. Many cabins are planning on sleeping out in our world camp buildings and others are planning to sleep in other creative fun locations. Hopefully the weather is kind to us and everything goes smoothly. 

Check back soon for another update on camp.

DREAM BOARDS

Dream Boards was one of our popular sessions held today. It inspires campers to shoot for the stars and be the best person they can be.


Dream Boards_What is your dream_.png

Sessions allow campers the chance to pick what they want to do and what they would like to learn. Dream Boards inspire campers to become their best selves whether that be at camp this week or farther in the future.

Today we held multiple session blocks and campers picked the CYOA they would like to attend for the week. Some sessions that were run today include archery, karate camp, 6 cultures in 60 minutes and so many more.

Campers continue to learn and have fun at camp this week.

Check back tomorrow to hear more.

FROM THE RISING OF THE SUN

One day has come to a close. Our campers arrived safe and sound tonight ready for an amazing week of camp.

Today 65 campers arrived today and started an extreme journey through camp. This weeks theme is Giants, Wizards and Elves based off of our amazing and popular rock paper scissor jump-start game. Campers will be transported to the magical fairy-tale world in which they will participate is sessions and many other things. 

Every night we sing "from the rising of the sun" in a circle with our arms right over left. It is a great way for campers to be together and get into that more sleepy mood. It is a camp tradition to sing this song.

Check back tomorrow to hear about what's happening.

Street Fair 2018!

Today Pearce Williams ran a street fair!


Street Fair.png

Today has been a fun filled adventure. At lunch our LIT friends revealed that they were actually aliens and took the primary campers out for a picnic. The aliens were dressed spectacularly and had some pretty cool decorations.

Later today we had our street fair. LIT's were paired up and each ran an activity. There was cotton ball shooters, rockets, light-saber duels, ultimate gaga ball, sidewalk chalk and much much more. We also had a total of four service dogs come and visit us today which all of the campers enjoyed to pet. They were also able to check out the inside of an ambulance.

Lastly tonight we had an amazing under the stars supper where campers were able to drive on their tables and dress up in spectacular costumes.

Check daily for updates on the Pearce Williams blog.
