At Camp Caroline, we understand that growing relationships (with friends and with God) and high energy outlets are exactly what teens are looking for. So that’s exactly what we’ve designed! As you participate in a week filled with swimming, archery, high ropes challenges, crafts, zip-lining and much, much more, we’ll make sure your experience is simply unforgettable by filling it with people and activities you will remember for the rest of your life.
Drop Off: Sunday from 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Pick Up: Friday at 6:00pm
BBQ & Closing Program: Camper parents are invited to a BBQ at 4:30 pm on Friday followed by the closing program at 5:30 pm; before camper departure at 6:00 pm.
All campers get an opportunity to participate in our regular onsite activities. These include: crafts, archery tag, target archery, axe throwing, swimming, giant swing, climbing wall, high ropes, zipline, etc. Each camper selects one special option or day trip (see list below) during registration which is added to their activity schedule for their camp week.
We partner with Beaver Creek Trail Rides and their fantastic horses for this great introduction to horsemanship. Three interactive sessions (including a double block) with your horse both in the corrals and along our trails makes this one of our most popular options.
For those with little to none horsemanship experience, this variation of our regular Horsemanship Program is for you! In this option we’ll spend more time on the basics, and keep the trail rides at a slower pace. It has the same amount of time as our regular option, but splits the sessions into 4 bite-sized blocks.
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.
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.
Three hours of high energy, adrenaline-pumping paintball action worked into your already great week of camp. Offered only to our older campers, our onsite forest course provides a challenge for all skill levels and is the perfect setting for an all-out paintball experience.
How about an afternoon on the lake, slung back and forth over the wake with a bunch of friends? If that sounds like a blast, then this is the option for you! Getting soaked guaranteed.
Our White Water Rafting trips take place 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, providing the exciting outdoor experience you are looking for while employing nothing but the top safety standards. Cliff jumping optional, but recommended.
Belongings should be marked with Camper's Name
Theme Meals: (optional)
Our staff are planning some fun theme meals where they will be dressing up in costumes. If your camper would like to bring costumes and join in we encourage them to do so! You may have old Halloween costumes or other dress-up items around the house that fit one or more of these themes, or your camper may enjoy raiding their craft cupboard and making a costume. However, campers should not feel like they must dress up or that they need to run out and buy costumes. These events will be fun for everyone either way!

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:
