What Monarch is all about

Monarch Bible Camp is a mobile camp. We are "On the Road" all summer long to bring DAY CAMPS to Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton Highlands. As well we operate a RESIDENT CAMP near Peterborough.

We operate DAY CAMP Programs in six different locations. Being a mobile camp enables us to service several communities and bring the fun and stimulation of camping right to the camper's neighbourhood. The day program is ideal for many families - it is much more affordable since food and facility costs are reduced, it provides a full camp program close to home, it gives families time together in the evenings, and it’s good for the local economy. It’s great for campers who want to enjoy camp but don’t enjoy being away from home. Grandparents enjoy treating their grandchildren to week at camp and still having time to enjoy them in the evening.

Our RESIDENT CAMP Program is high on adventure and fun. By combining the skills of Monarch’s diverse team and YLCC’s professional staff, children enjoy a well-rounded and safe camp experience. YLCC staff are experts in Recreational Programming and Leadership Training..

Monarch Bible Camp has been in operation under this name since 2000 when the directorship and office moved from Minden to Fenelon Falls. The camp, formerly known as CSSM Bible Camp - Minden, has been in operation since the mid-80s. The focus of the camp has always been to meet the needs of smaller communities. Monarch is part of the largest Canadian camp organizations, One Hope Canada which has been in operation since 1927. This organization operates over 40 camps as well as other ministries and bring with it expertise, experience and professionalism.

The camp is run by Director, Teresa Ward who is a full time Missionary with One Hope Canada. Along with her husband Barrie, Teresa brings to the camp, experience in Child Education, Psychology, Recreational Programming and Evangelism. The Director is supported by a Board of Directors.
