About our camp
1942 marks the beginning of the history of Pioneer Camp which was eventually founded in 1951. They form a network with 9 InterVarsity camps in Canada (named Circle Square and Pioneer Camp). A number of programs are designed to meet a whole range of needs and interests: Day Camp, Junior Camp, Girls Camp, Boys camp and Teens & Leadership Program.
Boys Camp is designed for children who are 9-17 years old and are interested in an overnight camp experience. Two programs are created to meet the age needs and requirements of campers: Junior Boys Camp (ages 9-11) and Senior Boys Camp (ages 12-17).
The junior camp is a one-week session, while the senior camp lasts for 12 days. All of the boys have a chance to meet role models and get inspired by their presence and knowledge. It is under the guidance of watchful staff that campers learn how to grow into an independent personality and a better man.
Camp programs & activities
The list of activities offered at Alberta Pioneer Camp for Boys includes riflery, horseback riding, manly crafts, mystery block, man tracker, water regatta, and outdoor trips. The spiritual theme of the week is discussed during campfire gatherings and Bible talks to help boys realize that “becoming a man should be a balance of increased responsibilities and also fun”.
