About this camp

highlights

Located on a beautiful 76-acre ocean-front site on Thetis Island, campers have been spending a week or more with us every summer for more than 60 years. We serve children and youth from ages 7-18 on a site that includes two waterfront bays, a pool, and accommodations for over 200. Activities include sailing, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing/wakeboarding, swimming in the pool, archery, crafts, music, the Wibit, and so many more. Age-appropriate Bible discussions and campfires provide safe places for discussions about faith and God. One of nine Inter-Varsity camps across Canada, we provide a fun-filled and safe environment where children and teens grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.

Director's Message

principal

Brian Burtchett, Executive Director

Greetings from Pioneer Pacific Camp!

Each summer for over 60 years, Pioneer Pacific has been welcoming hundreds of kids to the beautiful Thetis Island. Our hope is that each camper who comes to Pioneer experiences the best summer they have ever had as they build friendships, have unique outdoor experiences, and interact with our young, quality Christian staff.

The memories built at camp last a lifetime. As a father of five children I have been so blessed to see their lives shaped by the experiences they have had at camp. I can promise your kids will love it too.

Sincerely,

Brian

Camp's 60th Anniversary

Pioneer Pacific Camp turned 60 in summer 2015! We hosted an open house that included tours of the camp, boating, field games, wibitting, lots of food, and mingling with other camp community members. Towards the end, there was a worship service and our Executive Director, Brian Burtchett, spoke. It was a full afternoon of fun and celebration.


Grand Opening of the New Dining Hall!

On June 27th, 2015 we celebrated the grand opening of our new Dining Hall! This beautiful new facility can hold up to 300 people in the main dining area. It is two levels, with the dining area, leaders room, and kitchen on the top floor, surrounded by a wrap-around porch, and the tuck shop, laundry and bathroom facilities, and a general, indoor recreation area in the basement. We celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony that was open to the camp community. Although the building still needs some finishing touches, it was a lovely way to share what we’ve accomplished with the people who made it possible.
