Fraser Lake Camp, ON – Family Project

Description: Although there was no disaster, MDS volunteers will be supporting Fraser Lake Camp by building cabins, program buildings and some basic furniture pieces. The Family Project is designed for families to work together. MDS does not provide childcare or a separate program for children. Fraser Lake Camp is located on 275 acres of mature hard and softwood forests at the edge of Fraser Lake. Originally begun by a group of Mennonite people in 1955, it continues to serve the larger community around Bancroft and beyond. The camp is located 30 kms northeast of Bancroft, 200 kms west of Ottawa and almost 300 kms northeast of Toronto.

Description: On June 30, 2021 a wildfire swept through the Village of Lytton, destroying more than 90% of the town and killing two people. The fire wiped out the town’s infrastructure including the fire hall, police station, grocery stores, restaurants, town hall and records, museum, and approximately 100 homes. Quite miraculously, St. Barnabas Church, Rectory and Parish Hall survived the fire.
