Frequently Asked Questions

The Seventh-day Adventist Church – Quebec Conferene had originally planned a camp-meeting from August 9 to 12, 2023. Unfortunately, after visiting several campsites and location, this proved impossible, as most campsites could not accommodate such a large number of participants. Instead, the Conference has decided to hold an gathering for all church officers on August 11-13, 2023, at Camping du Lac-aux-Bouleaux. This event will follow the Officers’ Convention held in January, and will train disciples to integrate a practical strategic plan to serve the Church’s mission and vision. Halfway between Montreal and Quebec City, the site is calm, serene and offers an ideal space for soul-building, far from the distractions of the city.
