Experience Unforgettable - Camps & Retreats

    Lead 12

    This camp is designed to put a focus and emphasis on establishing a consistent faith journey with permanent and growing impact on the world around the students.

    Learn to Lead from a God-centered life. Explore Biblical foundations to build a life focused on God while gaining hands-on experience as a servant leader.
    The Lead 12 Program has been designed for emerging leaders going into Grade 12 who are growing in their Christian faith and want to take it to the next level. Lead Camps are focused on working
    with students and journeying with them as they seek to lead a God-centered life.



    Lead 12 is a 3-week leadership camp that focuses on developing a life of faith in Jesus Christ through the
    study of servant leadership as laid out in God's Word. 
    During the first two weeks of Lead 12, Lead campers
    will experience a ‘hands-on’ curriculum in servant leadership, including: group teaching sessions, personal
    devotions, team building activities, service projects, spiritual disciplines, worship times, and time
    spent leading campers alongside Camp Caroline's Grade Camp Counselors!

    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: May 15, 2020

    For more information on how to apply, see the Scholarship Application Form during online registration. All requests will be carefully considered.
