CamP PRO's... MARK YOUR CALENDARS.  

The next BCCA / FCC Camp Conference will be held at Stillwood Camp and Conference CENTRe.  

JAN. 29 to Feb. 1 - 2018

Our conference them is Face the Challenge. This year's focus is to provide strategies and tools to navigate difficult challenges that come across our plates every day. Often we may shy away from something we do not understand or from the unknown, and shelve it for another day. It's time to face these challenges head on. Ask questions, investigate and network with your peers to learn from their experiences and how they managed. Nothing is too big or too small to handle in our industry. We are thrill-seekers, challenge-takers and leaders.

Storm is a gifted communicator and has a God-given ability to keep the Gospel message relevant, fun and engaging. Storm and his wife Karen of 25 years are now empty nesters and are enjoying every quiet moment.
