Family Camps

Designed with your whole family in mind.

Designed with your whole family in mind, our Family Camps are popular for many reasons. Experience excellent Bible teaching from God’s Word. Enjoy scrumptious, first rate meals prepared by our Food Service Staff.

Or join a tournament and compete with other campers in ping pong, Scrabble, foosball and more. Planned outings such as hiking, canoeing, golfing and bike rides are also part of the week’s activities.

You may be ready for a much needed week of relaxation. GBCC is the perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful surroundings that God has so richly blessed us with. There is also opportunity to enjoy the local area and take in all that the city of Guelph has to offer.

No matter what the age range or interests, your family will be sure to benefit from the wonderful fellowship of other believers, the meaningful teaching from God’s Word, the fun activities, the delicious food and so much more. Come and join us for a week your family will always remember. There is something for everyone!

Family A

Date: August 5-11, 2018
Speakers: Sam Cherian & Creation Ministries

Sam Cherian

Sam Cherian resides in Troy, Michigan. He was born in India to godly, Christian parents. Saved by God’s grace at age 14, he was baptized a year later and came in to the fellowship of the local Assembly. Happily married to Glory for 37 years, he is the father of a married daughter and a son. They fellowship at Martin Road Gospel Chapel, St. Clair Shores, Michigan, where Sam serves as one of the elders. Along with his professional work, he is engaged in the ministry of God’s word both locally and elsewhere.

Creation Ministries

Thomas has been a communicator most of his life; acting, preaching and writing. His chief desire is to communicate the gospel. Thomas has become acutely aware of how important a literal historical view of Genesis is to the gospel and other core biblical doctrines. He is also concerned about the negative implications of the evolutionary worldview on present and future generations. He is particularly bothered by the systematic indoctrination of children into a worldview that leaves God out of the equation. These reasons have driven him to engage in creation ministry and he is delighted to be part of CMI. Thomas and his wife Gail live in Exeter, ON. They have two grown children, a son-in-law and one grandson. Thomas has BA in Drama, a BEd and a Diploma in Ministry.
