Hello we are the Gole Family!
We moved to Camp Homewood in 2007 and have been serving here for 8 years now. Aaron is the Program Director at camp, working with rental groups September to June (among other things) and then being a part of leading the summer camp programs, July and August. It is an amazing experience being a part of such variety in ministry from young children to families and being able to share the love of Jesus in words and actions. We have a neat connection with public school groups that come and take part in our fall to spring Outdoor education program; it allows them to see Homewood and meet our staff which can lead to them returning in the summer for camp and hearing more about Jesus! At Homewood we also host a wide variety of weekend rentals the create unique opportunities to share what’s different about us and what we do here and why.
Another exciting part of serving at Homewood is the opportunities to be a part of leading/training young staff and counsellors that come to camp for a summer or stay a full year. It is an important part of the ministry that takes on a regular basis, and also rewarding to see them grow in skills, in their personal relationship with Jesus as well as be able to minister to the campers that come.
Julie my wife and I have 3 boys – Jacob is 13, Oliver is 10 and Charlie 7. The boys love living at a camp and enjoying the outdoors. They are involved with different sports and activities and attend the Campbell River Christian School. Julie works on Quadra part-time as well as being involved in different events and shorter term projects that we have going on at camp. We live off the prayers and financial support of those that believe in our family and in what we do as missionaries on a small coastal island, and we appreciate you some much! Thank you!
