WHO WE ARE 

Frontier Lodge is a non-denominational Christian youth camp located just two hours outside of Montreal. Situated on the northeast side of Lake Wallace, the camp overlooks a beautiful view of the lake and mountains. It’s the perfect place to watch the fog lift in the morning, campers hanging out by the lake under the heat of the afternoon sun, and the vibrant sunset in the evening. 

Around the world, countless lives have been changed by summer camp, and we believe that each child should have the opportunity to attend at least once in their life! Camp is a place for young people to take a break from busy schedules and pressing demands. It’s a place that allows them to focus on their personal learning and growth. 

Campers at Frontier Lodge learn resilience when their plans don’t succeed. They’re encouraged to get back up and try again. They feel more confident, having tried new things and learned new skills. Campers will learn about friendship; gaining a better understanding of unity, empathy, compassion, compromise, and learning how to lovingly disagree. Frontier Lodge is a place to let loose and have fun, and it’s also a place where children will hear the Gospel message in a way in which they can relate and discuss the implications it has in their lives. It’s a place where children will be valued, listened to, encouraged, and loved beyond measure. By the end of the week they won’t want to leave!
