Open for Summer

Every monday, for the last couple months, has rolled around and with it came a certain level of dread. Because I knew I had to send out a little blog post and usually the little blog post had some tint of bad news. I do not enjoy being a harbinger...

T-9 Days

It’s Monday again folks. The COLTS are scurrying all over Lake Site completing their final exam. It’s an exciting time for them. They have all worked hard in the last two months to build up the skills they need for today. I am sure they are each...

A Note from your Friendly Neighbourhood Covid Communicator

There is something funny about the role of Covid Communicator. I want it to end. This is so different from any other role I’ve filled at camp. Usually I work my way through a week of out trip directing and leave wanting more. Covid communication, as...

The (Final) Plan

Today is a perfect spring day in the Pass. It’s warm - almost “hot”. The trees are budding explosively, like they had waited together, conspiratorially, for this weekend, and then all together, all at once, push out their first neon green leaves. It...

Covid and the COLTS

The COLTS have arrived. If ever there was a tell tale sign of spring in this corner of the world, this is it. I won’t disparage the crocus by saying the COLTS are more exciting, but it is exciting to see the COLTS arrive. Almost as exciting as a...

Surfing and Covid

I have surfed in Tofino. That isn’t related, really, to this week’s Covid Blog. I just wanted to take this opportunity to brag. Thanks for indulging me. Crowsnest Lake Bible Camp has had a few long standing acronyms. You got your leadership program...

Covid-19 Update: 19 April 2021

The 6 April Press Conference held by Dr. Deena Hinshaw was a strange one, if you are a student of these things. Strange, because the news reported - and the tone - was a blend of optimism and alarm that you do not often hear. On the one hand, we...

Covid Communications Coordinator!

I have worn a lot of hats at Crowsnest Lake Bible Camp. Most memorable being a vintage bucket hat, it was very cool. I’ve also worn warm hats and silly hats and many other kinds of hats. My personal favorite is a black five panel hat made from...

Covid-19 Update: 6 April 2021

I’ve begun generally to think of this WebLog as my own personal Covid Journal - a place for ol’ DGr to work out his feelings about the uncertainty; to do a little planning; share hopes, dreams, and aspirations. A place where I can demonstrate... we'...

Covid-19 Update: 22 March 2021

One year ago was the beginning. The beginning of the pandemic and all the chaos that went with it. It’s been a rough year. It has been a rough year, but Crow navigated it as well as anyone, I think. We’ve turned our focus to renovation and upgrades...

The Plan: 2021 Camp Schedule

Hello friends! It has been a while. We’re hangin’ in there - keepin’ it real - and we hope you are, too. Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. ~ Ephesians 5: 15 - 16...

THE OATMILK WINTER CAMP

Winter Camp Update... I am lactose intolerant. Yet I love milk. Unsurprisingly this has caused some grief in my personal life. One day, after drinking a glass of milk, I asked my partner Josh, “Hey, when you drink milk does it hurt...

Book Club

One of the consequences of being born in a Christian family is that I do not remember a time before Jesus. Jesus was like an older brother: he was part of the family before I was. I don’t remember when Jesus went from being “the way” to being “my...

Meet Yin Liu

Yin did COLTS back in 1990, and obviously had a lot more to learn, so lately the kind people at Crow have been letting her come back to do COLTS again -- ostensibly to instruct, but actually to learn more, as she follows the COLTS around in the...

Meet Stephanie Brouwer, iDoOP

Steph Backpacking.jpeg I first showed up on the scene of Crowsnest Lake Bible Camp back when I was an intermediate camper at Outcamp (Crow 2) which I went to for a few years until I was old enough to go on the AGOT. Having grown up on a farm in the...
