The Camp Frenda Project is off and running with 18 volunteers! The participants, ranging in age from 13 to 77 years old, come from Canada and the United States, including Ontario, Ohio, Alabama, Virginia, Michigan, New York, and California. For the next two weeks, the team will be painting the interior of six cabins. They are also cladding part of an open-air barn, building a boat house, and helping with general maintenance on the camp property.

Camp Frenda is located in the Muskoka Lakes region of Ontario, Canada. It is the official youth camp and retreat center for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Ontario, Canada. Each summer, the camp serves nearly 600 kids. According to leaders, forty percent of the young participants come from foster homes or troubled backgrounds, and they are sent by the province of Ontario. The program has been a wonderful ministry for at-risk kids, providing fun, adventure, and an opportunity to learn about Jesus.

Camp Frenda is the 27th mission project in North America this year. Requests for assistance on construction and renovation projects in the United States and Canada have increased, along with interest in volunteering in North America.
