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 2020 Experience at InterVarsity Circle Square Ranch Halkirk

The safety of our campers is our highest priority. Camp is about building friendships, having a great summer experience, and in the case of our camp, learning about God. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, current public health guidelines require group gatherings of less than 50 people and maintaining a distance of 2 meters between people who do not come from the same household or cohort household. Camp is by its very nature not conducive to social distancing. Typically our camp programs bring in 150 campers and 60 staff each week, from all over the province, and in some cases outside our province or country. It is heartbreaking for us, but we do not feel that we can run our camp programs this summer and follow these guidelines, to give our campers the safe and wonderful camp experience that they and their families have come to expect and we want to provide. We look forward with great anticipation to resuming our summer camp programs in 2021.
