Hi Thamesview Friends!

Camp Bimini is having an 8 Km Walk-a-Thon fundraiser on August 16th and Donna and Kevin Melanson will be participating and would love to have Thamesview‘s support! Please consider helping out Camp Bimini as we face the challenges of Covid and not being able to have traditional Camp this year by sponsoring us or by getting pledges and joining in the walk!  email : kdmelanson@ezlink.ca See details below:


Join the walkathon and raise money for Camp Bimini!  Pledge forms are available (attached)--simply collect your pledges and walk!  Why 8 km?  it's 20 laps of the playing field at Bimini and it's approximately 8 km to Stratford and St. Pauls!  AND, you get to do it wherever you find yourself that day (or weekend).  If you would like to participate, AWESOME! Tell us that you are participating! If you can't, please find a way to support this great fundraiser by either sponsoring someone else (you can always sponsor me!) and/or sharing this fundraiser among friends and family. It would be amazing if everyone had a minimum goal of $100! Cash, cheque, etransfers accepted. If your sponsors would like to donate on a credit card, please contact the camp and we can arrange this. Let's walk the walk! Make sure you wear Bimini gear to show off that day and take pics and post on social media! Challenge others to raise more than you!

Carolyn Clark and family invite all to this memorial event: Please note all precautions are in place with COVID-19 Restrictions



Our online camp experience began June 21 and is going well!  Among many things, we've explored some of the plants and trees of Bimini, made sidewalk paint, energy balls and ran and screamed at the same time!    We know the kids are enjoying it too!  If you would still like to register, there is room for more!  


Join us Sunday nights after 7 pm for Vespers and Wednesday nights after 7 pm for Campfire...lead by Bimini staff--past and present!  You may also find there some camp graces!  Check out our You Tube channel.


In case you missed it on Facebook, an alumnus has challenged all alumni!

 "I have recently become aware that Camp Bimini (not surprisingly) is not holding camps this summer. I remember my week at camp each summer as the highlight of the summer – also was there as a counsellor in my high school years. I feel very sorry for all the disappointed children this summer. Special memories – delicious food, games, crafts, SWIMMING POOL, campfires ( the famous Lion Hunt), vespers and new friends, receiving mail, as many other memories. Unfortunately many of the camp’s expenses are ongoing and the camp will be running a big deficit of $80,000 that will need to be carried into 2021. It sounds like a lot but if 80 people gave $1,000. each it would be paid. I have sent my cheque – now I challenge other Bimini alumni to also contribute financially and also to express what Bimini meant to you."       Janice Davey
