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.
