100 Mile Free Press
Nestled in the woods just a 35-minute drive northeast of 100 Mile House is Lake Of The Trees Bible Camp (LOTT).
Located on the sparkling shores of Lake Of The Trees, the Bible camp offers various three- to 10-day excursions between June 30 and Aug. 23 for children and youth in assorted age groups.
There is always plenty of outdoor fun and activities, with canoeing, kayaking, swimming, tubing, blobbing and archery for junior campers (aged seven-10) right up to teens (13-16). Campers aged pre-teen (10-13) and up can also enjoy the mini-golf course and fishing, while a climbing wall, water slide and paintball course at LOTT is open to the teens.
Optional skills training is available for model rocketry (junior/pre-teen), water sports (teen) and horsemanship (pre-teen/teen).
There’s even a two-night camp for “squirts” aged 6-9, and a three-night family camp for the whole gang, mom and dad included.
The Christian-centred Bible camp also provides an opportunity for campers to explore the scriptures and ask questions.
Everyone gathers daily at the chapel and nightly at the campfire to sing songs and learn more about the Bible.
Children and youth who are not religious or don’t go to church are welcomed at LOTT, and each year many do sign up for a chance to explore something new to them.
While the majority are from the South Cariboo, campers come to LOTT from all over British Columbia and Alberta.
Early bird savings are available for those who register before May 31.
