Pioneer’s Retreat & Outdoor Education Centre is a premier facility with two distinct sites!

Located on over 2,000 acres in the beautiful wilds of Alberta, Pioneer Camp Lodge (16 km SW of Sundre) overlooks the Red Deer River valley and the Rockies. Pioneer Camp Ranch is nestled against the peaceful shore of Crimson Lake (15 km north of Rocky Mountain House).
