Boys Camp is the ultimate action-packed, overnight, summer camp adventure! During each session you can see boys riding horses, camping out, running man tracker, learning outdoor skills, playing sports, swimming, wall climbing, or sneaking through the forest while playing an epic wide game!
Boys Camp is also a place where young men learn about God’s love for them and discuss what a relationship with Him could look like through small group discussion and mentoring relationships with staff.
Registration opens in November
Boys Camp Programs
Junior Boys Camp (Pioneer Lodge, Sundre)
Ages 9 - 11 | July 14 - 20
Junior Boys is a camp tailored to the interests and needs of boys aged 9-11. Archery, (air) riflery, horsemanship and riding, manly crafts, outdoor skills, mystery block, camp-out on the land, man tracker and water regatta are a few of the adventures that we use to introduce boys to the great adventure of the Christian life. Bible talks, worship, skits, silly campfire songs and all the rambunctious activities are purposefully planned to support and help boys understand the overall spiritual theme of the week. Boys will get dirty and may come home with a duffle bag of mostly clean clothes and a few REALLY filthy clothes (The pool is chlorinated, however!).
Our staff love this camp and the young men in our care and take their personal and spiritual development very seriously. We strive to love each boy in his uniqueness and show them that becoming a man should be a balance of increased responsibilities and also fun.
Senior Boys Camp (Pioneer Ranch, Rocky Mountain House)
Ages 12 - 17 | August 1 - August 12
“Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13
This camp (ages 12-17) connects you as a growing young man with inspiring older men, encouraging you at this critical time in your life. You will learn many outdoor skills leading up to a four or five day Wilderness Out-Trip that will create an opportunity to grow in many new ways and challenges.
12 year olds will spend their first Out-Trip on one that has been specially designed to introduce them to the fun of Out-Tripping (details to be decided upon by the leaders of the camp).
13 year olds will go on a Back-packing Out-Trip that will continue to introduce them to Out-Tripping and OT skills.
Ages 14-17 will choose their own Out-Trip from Backpacking, River Canoeing or Horseback Riding.
You will play hard, work hard and learn a lot during this time at Pioneer Camp. More importantly however, you will gain wisdom and guidance from your peers and leaders on how to be better men, modeled after the greatest man of all – Jesus. Commit these twelve days to engaging in new skills and activities all the while exploring the man you want to become. There is no doubt that you will be transformed and leave a better man!
