    Classic Camp

    Classic Camp for Grades 4 thru 6 is designed for those who want to experience as many of the activities as possible right on the camp property.

    This option is free, and your camper will get extra time to experience our most popular onsite activities.

     

    Horsemanship Program  (+$100)

    We partner with Beaver Creek Trail Rides and their fantastic horses for this great introduction to horsemanship. Three interactive sessions with your horse both in the corrals and along our trails makes this one of our most popular options.

     


     

    Lake Canoe (+$10)

    If being outdoors on the water is your thing, participate in this offsite day trip to one of the beautiful lakes close to Camp Caroline. Our trained Outtrip staff  will teach you how to canoe, tour you around the gorgeous lake, and of course, play lots of great games out on the water.

    Offsite Hike

    Don’t miss out on this offsite day trip hike in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Each year we search out the best hikes in our area, and tailor them to the age and ability of our campers.

     


     

    Laser Tag  (+$60)

    Three hours of high energy, adrenaline-pumping laser tag action worked into your already great week of camp. Our laser tag program is designed for all levels of experience and our outdoor course and instructors will provide the perfect surrounding for an all-out laser tag experience.

    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/.
    Application Deadline for 2019 Summer Camps: May 15, 2019

    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?
