Cairn Connects

Cairn Connects

We're in the middle of a trying, uncertain, stress-inducing time. There is a lot we cannot control, and much that is, as yet, unknown. Even in spite of the current status of our world, at Cairn, now as always, we believe in the importance of creating connections, fostering growth, and sharing God's love in all that we do.

In a time when we our campers are out of school, and we are being encouraged to stay around home, Cairn wants to bring a little taste of the camp community to you in your home. Our staff and alumni have been hard at work to create a daily program to remind us that, whether physically together or spiritually together, we have a camp community that is loving, joy-bringing, and can be supportive to each other as our families navigate the burden of this pandemic. 

If you have requests for programs you'd like to see, feedback on the programs so far, or any other ideas for how else we can help you, please send Mapes an email at mapes@ilovecamp.org

1:00pm - Social Lunch (Zoom meeting ID: 705-767-3300 and password: connect)

When we’re at camp, we love the community created when we eat meals together, and really miss that feeling at this time of year! Solution: Social Lunch. Each day a different Cairn staff or alumni will host Social Lunch where you can tune in and, from a distance, eat together.

Choose Your Own Adventure, or CYOA offers a diverse spread of interactive drop-in programs every afternoon, all week long. Programs range from 30-60 minutes, and since they’re drop-in-style, you’re welcome to join for the whole thing, or head out when you’d like.

3:00pm Songbook Series (Facebook Live and Instagram Live)

We all know how important music is within our camp culture. This week, Iscus is back with his Songbook Series Singalong, where he’ll be playing and singing his way through the whole Cairn song book! And don't worry - he takes requests for the last 15 minutes every day. Tune in and let your mind and heart be taken back to summer at camp.
