Just a short drive from Calgary, you’ll find Camp Chestermere, a Christian camp that offers full-day and overnight summer camps – jam-packed with amazing experiences – for kids aged 5 to 15 years old! A week on the lake, staying active, trying new things, and having SO MUCH FUN is just what kids need this summer!

Camp Chestermere, right on the shoreline of Chestermere Lake, is a beautiful year-round facility that provides rentals for private events, including school groups, weddings, business meetings, birthday parties, baptisms, sports training, and more. They also host their own conferences and events that are open to the public. If you’re looking for a place to do some good, you can spend some of your extra energy here, too! There are many volunteer opportunities that can allow you to be a part of great things happening. You can get involved in so many ways – the camp’s doors are always open!

What Happens at Camp Chestermere?

In short . . . lots! Being right on the water, camp activities include tubing, canoeing, and kayaking. Your kids could spend time wall climbing, target shooting, or biking. What about trying archery? The creative kids will love movie making and hanging out in the art studio. Whatever your kids are into, they will find something they love at camp!

And while kids are busy with all those activities, they’ll be unconsciously working on such great skills and traits as communication, friendship, persistence, and confidence!

Day Camp (Ages 5 – 13)

Campers ages 5 – 13 are welcome to come for a week of fun-filled day camps and enjoy all the activities that the camp has to offer. There is a small leader-to-camper ratio, for a safe and affirming environment for all children. With themed weeks, fun-filled activities, and a ton of exciting games, this is a perfect opportunity for your child to experience a taste of camp life.

Overnight Camp (Ages 7 – 15)

Campers ages 7 – 15 are invited to stay overnight for the full experience. Overnight camps allow campers to build deep, authentic relationships with other campers and their leaders. They will participate in a variety of activities, hear from incredible guest speakers, and have experiences they’ll remember for a lifetime. The themed weeks, caring staff, and action-packed programming will make their week unforgettable!

If you have older teens, Camp Chestermere is also home to an amazing Christian Leadership Training and Discipleship (CLTD) program for those in grade 9 and up. This program is dedicated to developing leaders to go out into the world and help beyond the borders of our towns and cities.

Wondering if your child will fit in? Camp Chestermere welcomes all kids, regardless of faith, social, or financial background. It really is “a place to belong”! If you have more questions, be sure to check out the FAQ page.
