We choose Pioneer out of a number of good options/recommendations of others because of your unique combination of camp length (4 nights for her first time), horseback riding, swimming and location (within a two hour drive of Calgary).
Pioneer Camp Alberta is a Christian summer camp with two beautiful locations in Alberta. One of nine InterVarsity camps across Canada, we have been operating for more than 65 years. We offer camps for children and youth ages five to 19, as well as programs in leadership development. Campers chose from great activities like horseback riding, climbing, swimming, archery, and much more. We provide a highly personal and faith-oriented camp experience. We love seeing kids grow and mature as they discover how much God loves them. At Pioneer Alberta, campers have fun, develop confidence and independence, make new friends, and grow in their relationship with God. Please visit our website or call for more details.
Pioneer Camp Alberta is one of nine InterVarsity camps located across the country. The camping program was begun 1929, an expression of InterVarsity, an association of campus ministries intended to bring Christian values and awareness to young people, and support their spiritual and social growth. The camps were part of the initial vision, designed to create a unique opportunity to bring young people together around the unique challenges that a camp setting can provide. That remains perhaps more true today than ever. At camp they unplug, and turn their attention to the community they find there. The activities facilitate a greater understanding of campers’ talents and abilities, as well as the Christian values that inform the programming. The camp has grown over the years, adding new activities and facilities, all of it furthering the initial goals.
We are heart-broken that due to the COVID-19 restrictions we cannot hold overnight camp at Pioneer Camp this summer. This is the first time in our history that the camp will not be filled with campers and staff and we grieve the lost opportunities to serve these young people and to work with our incredible team. Please stay in contact and let us know how we can support you in this unique season. While we are deeply disappointed, we fully support our government and health care leaders in their ongoing efforts to protect those in our communities who are most vulnerable.
