Camp Little Dragon started as an outreach program for the community in the summer of 2001. It is a nonprofit, faith based summer day camp that is dedicated to providing a safe and Christian environment for all children, no matter their faith or economic circumstances; where the focus is on treating everyone with respect and acceptance. The children learn to understand that each one of us has gifts and talents that God has blessed us with.
Over the years our camp has provided bursaries for many families who were experiencing financial difficulty. We were also able to provide a safe camp experience for a number of children who had mild special needs. Some of the camp parents who expressed gratitude for all the support, said they would not otherwise have had a place for their children to go during the day. We always put the needs of the children first, providing a safe and fun place for them to be while their parents were at work.
Over the past few years, we have had difficulty finding enough staff to work as camp counselors and we have not been able to fill each week with children. The financial community support has also decreased as many agencies seek assistance for their initiatives.
This has been a difficult decision for us to make about where to go next with our camp. We have decided to celebrate the many successes that our camp has made during the 17 years of camp life. We have also decided that 2018 was the last year for our camp to operate, as it is time for Little Dragon Camp to rest.
On behalf of our camp committee, we want to thank everyone involved with our camp for all the support you have provided during our many years of camp. We have been very blessed to have your support.
