The Alberta Camping Association exists to help organize, promote, and advance camps in Alberta. We will be frequently featuring ACA Members on this blog.
Kids are restlessly sitting around the campfire, anticipating the explosion of fun that will most certainly deploy in the next few seconds. Suddenly camp leaders jump out of the forest with bandana’s tied around their heads (lop-sided of course), stand in front of the kids and yell “LET ME SEE YOUR FUNKY CHICKEN!!!” It’s on.

That silly song is followed by another equally ridiculous number, and then followed by a few hilarious skits that will be replayed over and over in the cabins throughout the rest of the week. The songs slow down and they take on a more serious message until finally the campfire speaker brings the campers attention in and challenges them with a character or spiritual building message.
This scene is being played out at hundreds of camps all over Alberta on a daily basis, including Mulhurst Lutheran Church Camp. This camp is a Christian organization that focuses on the community, providing dynamic programming and services for campers of all ages. Through outdoor activities and creative programming Mulhurst Lutheran Camp’s mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ with those who visit their camp through leadership and ministry in a safe outdoor community.

The Luther League Bible Camp at Mulhurst was dedicated to the service of God on July 21st, 1946 and camp programming began shortly after that.
