Our aim at EBC is to provide campers of all ages with an unforgettable, life-changing experience in an atmosphere that's fun, active, and Christ-honouring. Our mission is to encourage each camper to not only enter into and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, but to help them develop Christian character as well. We want to give each one who comes to Emmanuel a chance to learn more about how God personally wants to be involved in their lives!
This all takes place on our beautiful 80 acre campground in Upton, Prince Edward Island, where the camp has been successfully running for sixty years. Campers are well fed with delicious, home-cooked meals. Our caring, experienced staff strive to create an atmosphere that’s enthusiastic and fun through a variety of games, challenges, and day-to-day activities. Emmanuel is the place to bask in the beauty of God’s creation, learn about Jesus Christ, make new friends and memories that will last a lifetime!
In 1954, Svend Christensen bought the property beside his family home and with God's leading and direction, they developed it into a Children's Camp that we are still enjoying today.
Svend's life verse was 1 Cor 15:58
"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."
