Special Guest Speaker

Pastor Jay Risner

Jay and Debbie Risner have been actively involved in children’s ministries for over 20 years. Jay served in the professional entertainment industry in the late seventies. In 1980, Jay and Debbie took what they had taught and produced in the secular entertainment world and went into full time ministry using their gifts and talents for the Lord.

Jay was the children’s pastor at James River Assembly, a church of over ten thousand and Timberline Church, with an attendance of over six thousand. Jay was also a children’s pastor for ten years in California before heading to the Mission Field (Africa) in 1990, as the coordinator of Children’s Ministries for East Africa. In 1993, while in Kenya, he performed and produced a children’s TV show, “Rainbow Surprise,” that is reaching today over twenty-two million people each week. Jay currently oversees full production of the show.

Today Jay and Debbie work as “Children’s Ministries Specialist International” for the Assemblies of God World Missions. They travel across the world, training children’s pastors and workers, performing in schools, ministering in large-scale kid’s crusades, and developing Children’s Ministries in many nations. Jay is a very gifted communicator not only to children, but to adults as well.

Canoeing Action Camp 2019

CAC (Canoe Action Camp): The purpose of CAC is to give junior & adult leaders an introduction to the sport of canoeing, and to help them be better prepared to assist in conducting canoe trips with their outpost. The camp is open to all Royal Rangers who have completed the 8th grade. Priority acceptance for applications received within the registration deadline will first be given for boys who have completed JTC & AJTC. In addition, all trainees must complete/meet the “Green Swimming Merit requirements” and be recommended by their outpost leader. The CAC is also open to Leaders and welcomes fathers who wish to participate as well. Minimun # Trainees 14, maximum # of Trainees will be 22. All requirements for the ‘Canoeing Merit’ will be met at this camp as well as the “25-Mile Award”. Aside from the training experience, this camp will also provide an opportunity for outstanding adventure in some of the most beautiful canoe country in America. 

The Canoe Action Camp (CAC) will begin at the base cabin in Bath NY on May 31 – Jun 2, 2019. CAC Staff will start arriving around supper time Thursday, and the rest of your campers will arrive that evening. All campers must arrive by 7:30 AM Friday May 31, 2019.

will depend on water conditions at the time, Expected float will be approximately 13 miles on the Cohocton River from Bath to Campbell on Saturday, and the 5 miles on the Chemung River from Corning to Big Flats on Sunday morning. There are spots on all 3 bodies of water where we stop for swim breaks, although Sunday morning’s schedule might not allow for it on Sunday.
