Summer 2022 is well underway!
and we're having so much fun!
After a two summer hiatus, we are so excited to be back on the road for a summer of Community Roots Day Camps throughout our diocese. We have an incredible summer lined up, with day camps happening in SIX communities throughout our diocese! Please note that applications for parishes that want to participate in this program are now closed for this year. 
The Community Roots Day Camp Program is designed to do two things -  first, to encourage young people to grow in their faith, or to learn about Christianity for the first time, and  second, to develop leadership capacity in communities so that meaningful, local ministry can continue to happen there for children and youth.  
We’ll have a staff team of Program Architects and Program Leaders who will develop and help facilitate a fun, engaging, and creative camp program. They will travel throughout the diocese, bringing all of the supplies needed for a week of camp with them.  
Even if your parish has never done a day camp before, we can absolutely help you make it happen.
This ministry is overseen by the Youth and Family Ministry Vision Strategy and Support Team (YFM VSST) of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The YFM VSST appoints a task group to directly oversee the various pieces of this ministry and to provide support for the program staff.  

We have the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions, but more information is also available in our program overview here, or you can  get in touch with Allie at (902) 789 3481 or
