As a non-profit charity we depend on financial donations throughout the year from people like you for capital projects, staff salaries and funding for our First Nations programs. Donations may be earmarked for the general fund (to be used where most needed), our First Nations programs, summer camp scholarships, for specific staff memebers, staff training fund, or our capital projects fund. If you have a preferance for where you would like your donation to be allocated, please let us know (for more information about each fund, please see below). Frontier Lodge is a registered charitable organization, charity #118933530. Tax receipts will be issued for all donations over $20 in February of each year.

Where donations go:
Donations that go to our general fund pay for everything required to make camp run. This includes food and kitchen supplies, office supplies, equipment and small projects.
First Nations Programs
We are excited to be able to work with First Nations communities and have been running two weeks of summer camp specifically for First Nations youth. The entire cost of these camps is covered by generous donors like you. That makes it possible for those First Nations youth to be able to experience the joy and excitement of summer camp each year! Many of these youth keep coming back each year and when they age out, they lose that connection. With that in mind we are starting a First Nations weekend retreat this coming spring. Your donations to our First Nations Programs will help cover costs and make it possible for many to have positive life-changing experiences here at Frontier.
The Capital Projects Fund
Currently the capital project we are fundraising for is a new housing for the Directors of the Explore program. The upstairs of this house is creatively laid out with three separate spaces that can function as individual units or combined to become a larger unit. The basement is a three bedroom family suite which will be used for Frontier Lodge Staff. Any donation noted as "building fund" or "directors housing" will be designated to that fund.
Summer Camper Scholarship
We strive to keep our summer camps affordable to everyone. However, some familes cannot afford the cost of camp, but we still want them here! The Summer Camp Scholarship fund has been set up to give these youth the opportunity to come to camp in spite of finacial difficulties.
Support our Staff Members
Staff memebers are paid a small living allowance and are expected to raise the remainder of their salary from home churches, friends and family. Supporting a staff member is an awesome opportunity to be directly involved in the life of a camp family, who otherwise may not be able to afford to be here long-term. To find out more information about our staff, click here. Contact our office if you have a question about who may be in need of support.
At Frontier Lodge, everything we do supports our mission of using God's wilderness to reach, teach and train youth and adults for Jesus Christ. We are faith-based, Christ focused and exist to serve others and change lives. Thank you for the part you play in this vital and fruitful ministry.
