Fair Havens Children’s Ministry is designed to provide quality programming for children from birth to those who have completed Grade 3
For 2022, we plan to provide morning programs (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) for children 20 months old through to completed Grade 3.
While you are being challenged and fed in Chapel, your children are connected to God’s Word through songs, crafts, bible stories and games. All children are nurtured by experienced, motivated and enthusiastic staff members who have been chosen for their care and love of children.
Programming reflects the appropriate developmental levels of each age as it focuses on their emotional, spiritual, social, physical and cognitive growth.
Children will experience joy, security and value as they meet new friends, explore God’s creation and share within their group’s various activities. It is our desire for the Bible to come alive as the children read each page and see how God’s truth applies to their everyday life!
We look forward to the awesome privilege of nurturing your child’s relationship with Jesus as we plant the seeds to help their faith grow.
Special Note: We are changing the services that we offer for children with special needs. For children up to and completed grade 3 we will offer minimal support in their classroom. For those in our youth programs, we will no longer be offering support. We would encourage you to bring a personal support worker for any one on one services your child may require while at camp.
Summer Program Highlights
It is so important for children to learn through different sensory experiences and we have such beautiful grounds for the children to explore and have fun with.
Fun, interactive Bible teaching geared to the children’s level of understanding.
New this summer, worship nights for all the different age groups along with our daily worship times.
We will be teaching the children different character traits that should define us as Christians.
Working alongside the children doing simple acts of kindness around the camp to help them see that even though they may be little they can be a big blessing in someone else’s life.
The Rock children will have weekly old fashioned “Sword” drills, in which the children learn to find verses fast through a fun game. Remember to send their Bibles with them to class!

Sign In / Sign Out Procedure
Starting Steps / Eager Explorers / Kinder Kidz
A strict sign in / sign out procedure is followed at Fair Havens Ministries to ensure the safety of all the children in Children’s Ministry.
You will receive a tag with your child’s name and number upon your arrival to program. This number will also be on your child’s name tag and belongings. The tag you receive upon arrival needs to be returned when your child is picked up at the end of program by either a parent, family member or designate who is 13 years of age or older.
Should we need to contact a parent during program for any reason, this number will also appear at the front, right side of Irwin Chapel with the colour of your child’s name tag. Please refer to your parent letter to clarify any other details for this procedure, upon your arrival to Fair Havens.
We ask that all children are signed in on Sunday morning and/or your child’s first day to program by a parent. Please ensure you give the leaders verbal permission for your child to be able to leave the program independently. If this is not your desire we look forward to seeing you immediately after program to pick them up.
