"Peace in the Middle East looked a little closer as 24 Jewish, Muslim and Christian kids from the Toronto area and Galilee region of Israel hugged, laughed and said tearful goodbyes. For 10 days they had participated in the Kids4Peace camp. This is the fifth summer that children from Israel have come to Canada for the Kids4Peace camp, a project that began at St. George's College with co-operation from St. George's Cathedral, both in the Episcopal diocese of Jerusalem. The Rev. Samuel Barhoum, an Anglican priest in the diocese and director of Kids4Peace in Galilee, says that 11- and 12-year olds are at a very good age to come to such a camp because they don't have preconceived ideas". "The camps began in the U.S. in 2002, and Toronto Anglicans David Ross and his wife, Cathie, helped found a Canadian chapter in 2004. Ross and a group of volunteers raise about $75,000 a year, allowing the camp to operate at no cost to the families".

The Dr. William Winter School for Ministry "draws faculty from the Saskatoon-based College of Emmanuel and St. Chad and from other colleges in Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa. More than 70 people have participated in the program since its inception in 2003, including clergy". The school offers a Diploma in Indigenous Anglican Theology. "Students attend eight 14-day residential summer and winter sessions at the Mission House built for the purpose by the people of Kingfisher Lake, Ont. In the summer, students and their families go to the Big Beaver Bible Camp. Students complete a total of 900 hours of contact time, and between sessions do practicum work in their home and neighbouring communities".
