WELCOME TO CANADIAN MISSIONS!
Every year we have volunteers serve with us from around the world! It is one of the reasons why serving at camp is such significant experience for both campers and staff.
We are not accepting international volunteer applications at this time due to restrictions regarding COVD-19, but you are still very welcome to contact us.
Please see FAQs below and contact us for more information.
Yes! Regardless of if you are hoping to work or volunteer at camp you will need to get a visa. The visa requirements are slightly different depending on what country you are coming from and if you are hoping to travel/work elsewhere or just be at camp. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Calgary International Airport (YYC) is the closest to camp and the easiest pick up location. There is no local transit to camp, so we will arrange a pick up from Calgary.
The weather in Alberta is ever changing. In summer (July/August) it can be zero degrees Celsius to 35 degrees Celsius. Because most of our activities occur outdoors, please bring clothing and footwear that will be suitable for rain, cold, and heat!

Pioneer Alberta is a nut aware organization. Many of the guests, staff and campers that join us every year have various nut and peanut allergies. Some of these allergies are very severe and can be life-threatening. To reduce the risk of exposure, we do not allow nuts or nut products on site. Please do not bring any nuts or nut products with you to camp. Please ask your friends and relatives NOT to send you anything containing nuts or nut products to you either.
