About this Camp

InterVarsity Circle Square Ranch Halkirk
 

We serve children and youth from ages 6-17, inviting them into an adventure-packed week or two at the ranch. We teach horseback riding for the beginner or advanced rider, showcasing their skills at a weekly rodeo. Other exciting activities include swimming, climbing, archery, BMX biking, and air rifles.  Age-appropriate Bible discussions and campfires provide safe places for discussions about faith and God. One of nine InterVarsity camps across Canada, we provide a fun-filled and safe environment where children and teens grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.


The Our Kids review of InterVarsity Circle Square Ranch Halkirk

 

The Circle Square Ranch camps were founded in the 1970s as a program of Crossroads Christian Communications TV program, Circle Square. The popularity of the show created an initial interest in the camp programs, though in time the quality of the camps themselves were the draw independent of it. In 2011 Circle Square Ranch Halkirk was bought by InterVarsity, becoming one of nine camps that organization runs across the country. Begun 1929, the InterVarsity camps contribute to the goal of creating unique opportunities to bring young people together around the personal challenges that a camp setting can provide. At camp kids 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 equestrian programs at Circle Square date back to the camp’s founding four decades ago; as strong as ever, they are a particular draw, including the weekly rodeo event, for many of the families that enrol here.


The 2021 Experience at InterVarsity Circle Square Ranch Halkirk

Dear Ranch Families! We are moving forward with hope that we will be able offer summer camp in 2021. While we do not yet know exactly what that will look like, we want you to know what you can expect from us. We really missed having our camps full of lively campers last summer and are committed to doing everything we can to ensure camp is a safe, fun-filled and wonderful place for them to return to this year. Be assured that safety is our top priority, as it always is when it comes to caring for campers. We will be following all precautions and guidelines that government and health authorities set for us. As you know, these guidelines sometimes change and so we ask for your patience as we respond as efficiently as possible.

Over the past year, we have reviewed our site and programs and implemented appropriate protocols that meet or exceed public health requirements. We have paid particular attention to dining areas, bathrooms and sleeping quarters. We are setting up spaces and planning programs in a way that still allows campers to experience the community, activities and joy of camp. It is so important for campers to experience the breadth of freedom being at camp offers them. We hope they will experience a week free from anxieties. We have also readjusted our programming to provide us adequate time between camps to disinfect. We have also reduced our camper capacity in order to meet social distancing guidelines so we encourage you to register soon.
