Family Ministry 2021

Traditionally OVPC hosts 2 weeks of Family Camp at the beginning of July.  While our regular camp programs are suspended due the on-going restrictions and unknowns that we face with the global pandemic, our team is hard at work planning ministry and camping opportunities for families on a reduced scale, allowing us to keep guests safe while complying

with our local health unit regulations.  


Whether you're looking to join us for a weekend, or stay for the week to enjoy a relaxing time away at OVPC, you can complete a reservation request by clicking here.  New outdoor amenities including interactive components to our hiking trails and watercraft rentals will proudly be available for 2021.


Read below to learn more!  Registration for Kids/Youth Day programs will open in May.  Note: All services and events are scheduled to take place outdoors to increase capacity while following social distancing protocols.  Families can participate by bringing their lawnchairs, or from their vehicle or golf cart.
