The new and improved version of our very own Camp Brookwood is ready to receive applications from this summer’s campers. Brookwood took advantage of the covid break to make many facilities upgrades.  The pool, play areas and grounds are in tip top shape and lots of paint has been applied to buildings.  Interested youth can download the application form at www.campbrookwood.ca.  To celebrate the reopening of the camp, the cost has been reduced to only $100 per week for each camper.

Recipients of the Diocesan e-News that comes out each Tuesday will have noted this week that the NB Anglican has been voted the most outstanding Christian – not just Anglican -- newspaper in Canada.
