    Classic Camp

    Can’t get enough of our onsite activities? Classic Camps provide the maximum time onsite to enjoy our various activities, from axe throwing and archery tag, to our pool, craft shack and high ropes courses.

     


     

    Girl's Horsemanship  (+$130)

    Our experienced staff and horses are perfect tutors in learning the skills of horsemanship. Whether beginner or intermediate, we will take your level of knowledge and build on it, teaching you how to better ride and treat a horse so you can experience what if feels like to work hand in hand with one of God's beautiful creatures (your horse). The program starts in our arena, but soon ventures out on an amazing trail ride and times of interactive games on your horse.

     


     

    Lake Canoe  (+$10)

    If being outdoors on the water is your thing, participate in this off-site day trip to one of the beautiful lakes close to Camp Caroline. You will learn how to canoe and, of course, combine that with loads of fun on the water.

     


     

    Offsite Hike

    Don’t miss out on this off-site, day trip hike in the foothills of the mountains. You will be challenged on a number of levels – most importantly, your view of God’s incredible creation.

     


     

    Paintball  (+$85)

    Three hours of high energy, adrenaline-pumping paintball action worked into your already great week of camp. Our onsite forest course provides a challenge for all skill levels and is the perfect setting for an all-out unforgettable experience.

     


     

    Power Tubing  (+$110)

    How about an afternoon on the lake, slung back and forth over the wake behind a boat with a bunch of friends? If that sounds like your style, then this is the program for you! Unforgettable experience guaranteed.

     


     

    White Water  (+$115)

    We do our white water rafting on the Red Deer River, which is only 90 minutes away from camp. The Mukwah Tours group has been our rafting partner for years and are complete pros, giving all campers the adrenaline pumping experience you are looking for while employing nothing but the top safety standards. If you enjoy excitement in the great outdoors, you’ll love this unforgettable adventure.

    Is there a scholarship fund for those who can't afford a week of camp?

    We don’t want to see anyone miss out on the opportunity to experience a week at camp!  If you or your child would not be able to attend summer camp without financial assistance, you are welcome to apply to the Camp Caroline Scholarship Fund, a fund into which many generous Camp Caroline supporters have donated, helping to make the camp experience available to as many as possible.  

    Because we want to be good stewards of the funds God has entrusted to us through these generous donors, we have put the following Scholarship Fund guidelines in place:

    1. The Scholarship Fund is intended only to cover a portion of the camp fees for a camper.
    2. All campers are required to pay the minimum $50 deposit to hold their spot.
    3. Additional camp option costs (outtrips, craft supplies, t-shirts, etc.) are not covered by the Scholarship Fund.
    4. Campers who have received a scholarship may only attend one camp session per year.
    5. While we would love to provide continual scholarship funding for a camper year after year, priority will be given to first time applicants.  Returning campers are welcome to apply, but financial assistance is not guaranteed.
    6. All personal information gathered through the Camp Caroline Scholarship Fund Application will be governed by Camp Caroline’s Protection of Privacy Policy.  Scholarship Fund applicants can view this policy on our website, www.campcaroline.ab.ca/privacy-policy/.

    For more information on how to apply, see the "Scholarship Fund" page of the “Camper Profile Form” during online registration. All requests will be carefully considered.

    What does a typical day look like?

    This is an example of a typical day at Camp Caroline. Slight adjustments are made to the times depending on the week to facilitate age appropriate bedtimes.

    8:00 AM Wake up, get ready for the day!

    8:30 AM Breakfast - Could be pancakes and sausages, waffles with berries, bacon and eggs, french toast, and more!

    12:30 PM Lunch - Could be chicken burgers, tacos, grilled cheese, and many more great camp classics!

    Afternoon: Three blocks of Activity Time with your cabin. During a week of camp all our campers get an opportunity to participate in our great onsite activities (crafts, swimming, archery tag, ziplining, and more!) as well as their one pre-selected program option or outtrip (Lasertag, Paintball, Horsemanship, White Water Rafting, etc.).  

    5:30 PM Dinner - Could be spaghetti and meatballs, chicken fingers and fries, stir fry and rice, and many more options!
