Put Pioneer on your Christmas list!

The operation of a camp requires many pieces of equipment, from the large to the very small. And they all add up. Each area of camp has created a Christmas wish list of needed items complete with a price point and a link to where you can purchase the item, just like a catalogue or a registry. Would you consider being the Santa Claus to our Campers this year and donating something from our Wishlist?


Check back here regularly for a list of items you can contribute this Christmas to help make next year even better at Pioneer Camp Alberta.


Each week leading up to Christmas will focus on a different area of camp:

  • Week of November 26: Out Trips
  • Week of December 3: Barns
  • Week of December 10: Kitchen
  • Week of December 17: Maintenance
