The ministries at Gracefield Christian Camp and Retreat Centre depend on a variety of fundraising efforts and generous donors. Please also consider donating to the Campership Fund which helps fund children and young adults who would not otherwise be able to enjoy time at camp.
Please consider the following methods of donating. In all cases a tax receipt will be issued.:
- Cheque: You may write a cheque to “Gracefield Christian Camp and Retreat Centre” and mail it to the Camp Office.
- Credit Card: You can call the camp and we can take your credit card donation over the phone. Call the Camp Office at (819) 463-2465.
- Online: You can donate online through PayPal (no account needed, and Gracefield receives 100% of your donation!), or through Canada Helps with your credit card (please note, this service keeps a portion of your donation as their fee).
