LPC Jr HIGH
The Eastern Ontario and Nunavut District is so excited to share that Calibrate Jr high and YTH will be taking place at LPC this summer. Calibrate, previously known as Jr High Camp and Youth Camp, will look a little different but we promise your students will still have an amazing camp experience.
You might have a question or two about Calibrate so Jeremy and Ashley have created a FAQ section with the hopes of answering some of your important questions. You will also find more information about guests, schedules, accommodations and more below.
MEET OUR GUESTS
MATT SCHMID - SPEAKER
Matt is a very enthusiastic and energetic person. He was a youth pastor in Toronto for 5 years before moving to Woodvale Church in Ottawa to serve as the Jr. High Pastor for almost 7 years. For just a year, he recently became the young adults and connections pastor there. He is married to his wife Yvonne, and they have a son, Ezekiel. Matt gets really excited whenever talking about ways to lead people into living out their fullest potential. Anything Matt does, he does all-in; whether it’s Coffee connoisseuring, BBQ’ing, weightlifting, or anything else that’s super random––he does it all to the extreme. Amidst all these random hobbies, he’s just as passionate about imparting that level of love for Jesus in the lives of today’s students.
GKM NEXT GEN WORSHIP
The Global Kingdom Ministries Next Gen Worship team is a group of individuals from all different backgrounds that have come together with one purpose: To worship God with all their hearts and to lead the next generation of worshippers in praise to Jesus Christ our King! God is looking for worshippers to worship Him in spirit and in truth and that is the goal for this team. They are excited to join together with youth groups across our district at LPC to join worship together with one heart, the heart of the church.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO STUDENTS REGISTER?
This will now be done by the youth pastor/leader, so students will now register through their youth ministry and not the camp.
CAN STUDENTS STILL ATTEND CALIBRATE IF THEY DON'T ATTEND A PAOC CHURCH OR HAVE A YOUTH PASTOR?
Of course! Everyone is welcome to attend Calibrate. If a student finds themselves in this situation please contact Jeremy and Ashley and we will do our best to direct them to the closest local church or one they have a relationship with to register with that group.
HOW DOES A YOUTH PASTOR REGISTER A GROUP?
Similar to our other EOD Youth Channel events, once the youth pastor/leader has their registration list, they will then go online to our district website and register their group along with their leaders.
WHEN IS CALIBRATE?
Calibrate Jr High: July 8-10, 2022
WHAT DOES THE SCHEDULE LOOK LIKE?
The length of camp has been shortened but students will still experience many of the same activities. Students will participate in encounters, group devotions, sports, late night and more. Some of the activities will happen in youth ministry groups but other components will be in mixed team with campers from other churches.
WHY IS THE SCHEDULE SHORTER?
Due to the impact of Covid-19 we believe a weekend model is more attainable during this season of uncertainty. We also believe the weekend model creates more opportunities for youth ministry leaders to get time off from work to invest in students.
HOW MUCH DOES CALIBRATE COST?
Youth Pastors will set the final registration cost for their students/leaders which should include the registration fee, accommodations and transportation.
