About this camp

InterVarsity Pioneer Camp Alberta
 

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.


The Our Kids review of InterVarsity Pioneer Camp Alberta

 

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.

Reviews & Testimonials

  • Camp Memories
    Camper Parent — Parent

    Our son came home from the Horsemanship Skills Session 1 Camp. He had such an amazing week and thought the Camp Leaders were so great.... Frozone, Cricket, Mowgli, Pud, Rapunzel, Acorn, Pelican, Shakes and the "Horse Husband and Wife" (lol! He couldn't remember their names). Can you please pass on a sincere thank you to all of them? He will have memories that will last a lifetime and we as parents are so grateful for the kindness and care he received. Everything was "awesome"....from the Wide Games, the yummy food, to the camp fire songs to the riding and roping!! He's already looking forward to next summer :)

  • Growing Up
    Camper Parent — Parent

    Our son came home from camp and was so excited and positive about his week at Zao. In fact, he’d happily do it all again next year! He absolutely loved the paddling track and the “river day” was the highlight for sure. He challenged himself and tried things he’s never done before and his dad and I feel like he’s come home a man!! Well, not quite but he’s certainly grown another inch. Thank you to all involved in making camp a great week for the kids and for taking care in all things from safety on the river to healthy food for their bodies and spirits.

Director's Message

director

Ruth Lewis, Executive Director

We love kids. We love seeing them discover they can do more than they realize. We love watching them develop life-long friendships. We love listening to their laughter. We love seeing them grow and mature as they discover how much God loves them. We love welcoming them back to camp, year after year.

Our Pioneer Lodge site in Sundre  is primarily devoted to Elementary aged campers 5 - 11 year olds, while our Pioneer Ranch site Rocky Mountain House is devoted to Junior and Senior High ages.

Out-Tripping is a key element of our Ranch site, where campers at Senior Girls and Senior Boys go on a four to five day Out-Trip,  either Backpacking, Hiking Base Camp, River Canoeing or Horseback Riding. We believe that as young people experience nature and the great outdoors, they begin to see more of who God is.

Founded in 1951, Pioneer Camp Alberta is part of a network of nine InterVarsity Camps across  Canada operating under the names Circle Square and Pioneer. We are committed to seeing young people transformed by the love of God actively at work in their lives.
