Description and Mission

We are part of a network of nine InterVarsity camps across Canada operating under the names Circle Square and Pioneer Camp. Everything we do at Pioneer Camp is for the purpose of helping children and youth grow spiritually, mentally, socially and physically in a fun-filled and safe place of adventure and challenge. We invite campers to consider what the Bible has to say to them, about their relationship with God, and each other.

“Through exploring God’s creation Pioneer Camp Alberta seeks to demonstrate: Christ’s love, grow disciples, and cultivate leaders for the sake of the Kingdom.”

Two amazing sites! One at Sundre, AB (Pioneer Lodge) and the other at Rocky Mountain House, AB (Pioneer Ranch). Both are well-established camps offering a warm and welcoming environment for campers in the summer and for rental groups from September to June.

Pioneer Camp Lodge is located 16 km southwest of Sundre, overlooking the Red Deer River Valley with a fantastic view of the Rockies!

The central Lodge has a large dining room, kitchen and meeting areas. Nikki’s Chalet, an additional meeting area, is a one minute walk down the hill from the Lodge. Guests either stay in dorm or twin rooms in the main Lodge or in heated cabins with twin or bunk-beds. Cabins are one large room on the main floor, with an overhead loft. The cabins are winterized, insulated, heated by gas and have electricity.
