About Pioneer Lodge

We are part of a network of nine InterVarsity camps across Canada operating under the names Circle Square and Pioneer Camp. Everything we do at Pioneer Camp is for the purpose of helping children and youth grow spiritually, mentally, socially and physically in a fun-filled and safe place of adventure and challenge. We invite campers to consider what the Bible has to say to them, about their relationship with God, and each other.

“Through exploring God’s creation Pioneer Camp Alberta seeks to demonstrate: Christ’s love, grow disciples, and cultivate leaders for the sake of the Kingdom.”

Two amazing sites! One at Sundre, AB and the other at Rocky Mountain House, AB. Both are well-established camps offering a warm and welcoming environment for campers in the summer and for rental groups from September to June.

In addition to summer camps, both locations provide a wide variety of affordable, seasonal activities with bookings available September through June for conferences, retreats, family getaways and school outings. Whether you are riding on a horse, conquering the sport climbing wall or enjoying a high-energy campfire time, Pioneer Camp will deliver incredible memories.
