PFC’s Angel Tree Camping program connects church communities and individuals with the families of prisoners through a Summer Camp experience. Children get the opportunity to step outside of their home situation and into a camp environment full of adventure and fun. It also provides them with the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus Christ and the difference He can make in their lives.
A gift of $300 provides a Christian camp “bursary” or placement for kids to experience the freedom to try new things, the joy of making friends, and the comfort of knowing the deep love God has for them. This year, we’re praying that more children than ever will experience camp as Angel Tree kids, whether in person or virtually.
“You have no idea how happy this makes them. It is a huge blessing for them. We are grateful beyond words. Thank you for the love you have for all these children and their parents.”

“Thank you for sending me to camp! I learned that no matter what, God never gives up on me and He will always love me.”

If you are a caregiver and are interested in having a child participate in Angel Tree Camping, please encourage their incarcerated parent to speak with their Chaplain and request an application. Or contact us directly at 1- 844-618-5867.
Funding is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis to only those who successfully qualify for the program. For any child who is approved for sponsorship through Angel Tree Camping, Prison Fellowship Canada regional staff or volunteers will work with the child’s caregiver to help connect the family with a local Christian camp in their area and facilitate the child’s camp registration.
LAST YEAR’S PROGRAM IMPACT
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
