About the RP Family Camp

Since 1961, there has been an annual gathering of the Reformed Presbyterians in Ontario.  The location has changed a few times, but the purpose of the gathering has remained the same: to glorify God and build His people in their faith.  This is done through sound biblical teaching, fun activities for all ages and a weekend away from normal routines.

With the establishment of the RP Church in Canada, this weekend is undergoing a name change from the "St. Lawrence Family Conference" to the "RP  Family Camp" and is being organized by the Canadian Presbytery of the RP Church of Canada.

For a detailed history of the camp please see "Silver Lake: a Meeting Place of the Beloved"


The Wesley Acres Campground was chosen as the location for this years camp for two main reasons.  One, the quality and variety of accommodation options that are available for the participants and two, the location being equidistant from all the RP congregations in Ontario.  The facilities at Wesley Acres also provide many of the same activity choices that we have enjoyed in other locations: playgrounds for the children, gaga ball, volley ball, basketball, beach front, canoes, kayaks, water trampoline.  The food will be prepared by our kitchen staff and we will enjoy the same menu as in previous years with homemade cookies and fruit available at each meal.  Accommodations for food allergies can be made, please let us know your needs when you register.

"I had a fantastic time at the Camp. The food and fellowship was wonderful, the recreational times were great, and the lively conversations were very stimulating. It's a fun event which really does allow Christians to get to know each other, worship and pray together, and find spiritual refreshment. Although I have to say that I have still not recovered from being soundly beaten in the 'Are you smarter than a fifth-grade homeschooler?' competition."

“The Camp has become a family tradition for us, not because we aren’t busy or because there isn’t a cost, but because the Lord repeatedly uses the Camp as an opportunity for our family to be blessed and to give us a great opportunity to get to know and serve others. The Camp is a perfect transition from summer to September – we wouldn’t miss it.”

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Camp. By the Spirit’s grace, the Bible-based topics, godly fellowship, and enjoyable time of respite make for an ideal opportunity of renewed spiritual vigor. If you are even remotely considering attending or supporting this camp, I would encourage you to do so. You won’t be sorry."
