2021 Summer Family Camp

“We are BUSY making PLANS for our 2021 Summer Family Camp”… WE WILL BE OPEN!!

Presently, we are developing the Summer Family Camp Program for 2021, similar to 2020 but with MORE programming AND LOTS of great space to hike, walk, play and enjoy God’s wonderful creation!... at the same time, making sure that we are following all of the Provincial Safety Protocols and Government Guidelines.

We, as the Fair Havens Team, Summer Staff and Volunteers, believe that we WILL be able to offer, such events as:

- A Sunday Outdoor Chapel Service for all... just bring your lawn chairs;

- Morning Bible Teaching for Adults & Youth (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays);

- A Modified morning (only) Kids' Ministry Program for Kindergarten age to Grade 6 (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays);

- As well as, a Modified evening (only)Youth Program for Grades 7 to 12 (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays) with games, campfires, a time of devotion & worship;

- Takeout meals will again be available through TrussFood Works... they are delicious and individually wrapped for your safety;

- We are not sure if we will have INDoor Dining... it will be dependent on Provincial Restrictions and Guidelines;

- LOTS of Family activities: Family nature/wildlife Hikes; Family 'Bubble' swim times; Watercraft usage; and the Beach will be OPEN;

- PickleBall, Tennis, Mini-Putt, GaGa Ball and the Playground will ALL be OPEN;

- Our own 9-Hole Golf will be FREE, this year... Bring your own clubs OR Rent ours;

- The Riverside Inn IceCream SHOP will be open each afternoon;

- LOTS of Family Events on “Family Wednesdays”;

- Weekly Family Craft Time and the Ladies' Garden Party will return.

We are doing our very best to keep everyone SAFE; to prevent the spread of this virus; to provide a place of Refreshment, Renewal and Rest, to God’s Glory!

Stay TUNED!! It WILL be a GREAT summer for ALL!!
God bless you and your dear family!

Letter to Seasonal Camping Guests & Season Siters – March 10, 2021

To our Campground Seasonal Guests,

What a “Joy” to know that Fair Havens Ministries will OPEN its Seasonal Campground sites, again, starting Saturday May 8th, 2021 at 9am, as long as we continue to follow and adhere to the Provincial guidelines and restrictions.

We look forward to welcoming your family back to Fair Havens! The water and hydro utilities will be turned on for the Season Site campground sites; although we probably will not be able to verify all of the connections nor if there are any leaks. As well, as you can imagine, due to the provincial activity restrictions that have been in place, we have not been able to get our grounds and facilities up to our usual standards for this time of the year. We appreciate your patience as we work to catch up! AS WELL, please know that we still have several Staff on Lay-Off and ONLY TWO Maintenance Men working hard to keep up with the many duties involved in OPENing up the Campgrounds.

For the safety of guests and staff, and to comply with provincial COVID-19 regulations, the following measures are still in place for the coming Season:

- Covid-19 Risk Waivers: Each seasonal trailer owner is required to fill out a waiver, acknowledging the risks and safety protocols associated with COVID-19. They will be available from the Office.

- If you rent your trailer, you must email us (registrar@fairhavens.org) with names, email address and cell phone number of anyone using the trailer other than the registered owner and their immediate family. This is required for tracing purposes in the event of an occurrence of COVID-19 on the grounds.

- Each renter or visitor must also fill out a waiver. We reserve the right to refuse access until we have a completed waiver on file.

- ALL PERSONS over 18 years MUST sign a waiver; AND Parents/Guardians must sign a waiver on behalf of their (named) minors under the age of 18 years.

The following areas will remain CLOSED, at this time, to comply with provincial restrictions:

- The Riverside Inn Dining Room and Café are still Closed for InDoor Dining;

- The Provincial Rules regarding Social & Event gatherings limit group gathering sizes to All events and social gatherings, are as follows:

• Indoors: 5 people
• Outside: 25 people

Religious, wedding and funeral services:

• Indoors: 30% capacity
• Outdoors: 100 people


MASKS will still need to be worn INSIDE; and OUTSIDE, if you can not maintain Social Distancing.

- Controlled campfires are permitted by the municipality and the province. >> You are welcome to walk anywhere on the grounds or across the road onto our OCE trails, but please observe 6-foot distancing guidelines as you meet your friends and neighbours in your travels.

The following areas are open during the week, Monday to Friday, from 9am to 4pm:

- The Main Office & Word Shoppe;

- as well, the BoatHouse & SportShop will be, as we get volunteers to help out; If you have any questions, you are welcome to Call 1-800-430-5059 to reach the Office Staff.

We are excited to be able to open the Seasonal Campground, and we are looking forward to opening other areas of Fair Havens as provincial restrictions allow. We are praying that God will provide for a safe and fruitful season of Ministry at Fair Havens.

We look forward to seeing your family!

With much sincerity, the Executive and Staff Team
