Cook and Canoe Camp

The “cook and canoe camp” is for youth going into Grade 4 in September or older. Monday and Tuesday are spent at Emmanuel preparing food for the camp and playing games. The canoe camping takes place at Lac LaPeche in the Gatineau Hills, about 45 minutes north of Ottawa from Wednesday morning to Friday afternoon. Applications are available in the spring from the Sunday School leaders.

Worshiplude is a winter worship and fellowship event for youth and young adults (ages 10+) hosted by the Eastern Ontario Outaouais Region (EOOR) of the United Church of Canada that coincides with Winterlude in Ottawa. It’s been happening for over 20 years in Ottawa! Worship + Winterlude = Worshiplude. Groups plan and lead their own activities during the day and gather Saturday night for a collective worship and dinner. As a local church, we often play host to visiting youth groups. Our youth have been active in programming and performing at Worshiplude.
