A Letter To Parents

What is Summer Youth Celebration?

We are so excited that you are considering sending your teenager to Summer Youth Celebration (SYC)! Maybe your teen has been there before, or maybe this is the first you have ever heard of this camp. Hopefully the following information will be helpful to you.

Summer Youth Celebration is a summer, co-ed youth camp sponsored by the Midwest Baptist Association and the Canadian National Baptist Convention. It is for teens who have completed Grades 6 through 12, July 15 -21. It is held at Sunset Point Bible Camp near Alberta Beach, Alberta.

SYC is a retreat that offers opportunities for students to experience Christ through worship, discipleship, community and adventure. It is our belief that God loves everyone individually, and desires to have a personal relationship with them. We will encourage each person to develop this relationship, but we believe strongly that each person is individually responsible for his or her own beliefs.

We work hard to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone. Church leaders are responsible for the behaviour of those in their group, although everyone contributes to keeping order. Many adults who love teenagers and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ supervise, mentor and teach at SYC. Our adult to teen ratio is (at the minimum) 1 to 4.

Camp is a great experience for students. We want as many youth as possible to have the opportunity to attend SYC. But we also know that the cost of camp can be a burden for some families. If finances are a hurdle for your youth to come to camp, we have scholarship opportunities available. Simply fill out this form and we will get in touch regarding the various scholarships.

We appreciate you trusting your teenager to us, and we take that responsibility very seriously. We commit to helping them grow as we share our lives with them. It is our desire that youth will return to their churches and homes living more accurately the life that Jesus Christ demonstrated and commanded in His earthly ministry.

If you have any questions, talk to the youth leader or pastor of the church where your youth attends. We're sure they would be happy to answer any questions you may have. You can also contact us as Directors by emailing .
