As a committee of presbytery the camp committee facilitates denominational combined activities at Dixons Creek, not activities arranged by congregations.

The committee is responsible for managing Dixons Creek camp on behalf of presbytery and for improving its range of uses.

The committee recommends to presbytery an annual camp program and organizers for each camp. Organisers arrange staffing and submit arrangements to the committee before each camp.

Presbytery receives recommendations from the committee on a camp ministry policy and oversees its implementation by the committee, organizers and others involved in the camp program.
