  • Interpersonal skills: Our programs from cabin life to activities are designed to foster friendship and healthy relationships between campers and staff. Camp helps kids step out in leadership, team-work and confidence.

Zao (pronounced Zay-oh) means to live, breathe and enjoy real life! During Zao, campers will get the chance to grow and flourish in one of the following areas:

Ride: This track is all about horses! Participants will get hands-on experience in basic horse grooming, care and maintenance, all while developing their riding skills each day. They’ll discover what horses can teach them about God, themselves and the world around them.

Paddle: This track takes campers out into Crimson Lake where they’ll learn to paddle a 2-person tandem canoe before trying their hand paddling the mighty North Saskatchewan River! It’s a week full of rapid thrills and mountainous adventure as campers bond through their shared challenges and triumphs.

Zoom: This track endeavours to capture the beauty and reality of life around us! Designed with the Visual Arts enthusiast in mind, Zoom provides campers with ample time and space to stop, take note of the details around them and capture them through photography, painting, sculpting or sketching. Each day they will focus on a particular skill, technique or project, and each evening they’ll share their work and tell the story of what inspired them.

In addition to the track-specific activities, Zao incorporates all the best-loved camp games, too! Wide-games, swimming, archery and canoeing are just a few of the options, while campers discover more about God through an overnight camp-out on the land, daily Bible studies and stories shared by staff. This is a week they won’t want to miss!

If your child is ready to take their skills to the next level, we also offer a Senior Skills Shefa program to build on what they learned in Zao.
