Ruth Lewis, Executive Director
35 years of experience working with youth through camping and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
We love kids. We love seeing them discover they can do more than they realize. We love watching them develop life-long friendships. We love listening to their laughter. We love seeing them grow and mature as they discover how much God loves them. We love welcoming them back to camp, year after year.
Our Pioneer Lodge site in Sundre is primarily devoted to Elementary aged campers 5 - 11 year olds, while our Pioneer Ranch site Rocky Mountain House is devoted to Junior and Senior High ages.
Out-tripping is a key element of our Ranch site, where campers at Senior Girls and Senior Boys go on a four - five day out- trip, either Backpacking, River Canoeing or Horseback Riding. We believe that as young people experience nature and the great outdoors, they begin to see more of who God is.
Founded in 1951, Pioneer Camp Alberta is part of a network of nine InterVarsity Camps across Canada operating under the names Circle Square and Pioneer. We are committed to seeing young people transformed by the love of God actively at work in their lives.
