Classic Camps

Each day, campers get four, one hour focused activity (also known as skill) sessions which are selected when they check in at camp. It's a traditional Ranger experience, but there are still new surprises and a unique experience for each camp.

Add Fanatic options

Fanatic options maximize skill time for Classic campers at our teen summer camps by replacing some of this time with their chosen Fanatic activity. Simply choose a classic camp, add a Fanatic option, and enjoy! Options vary from week to week.

  • Horseback Riding Fanatic
    For campers who want to learn more about equine care and riding technique — whether they've never ridden a horse or have years of experience!
  • Paintball Fanatic
    Our diverse courses and excellent instruction will take gameplay beyond the next level. Experience five afternoons of intense challenges and fun on our vast paintball field.
  • Watersports Fanatic
    Wakeboarding, wake skating, wake surfing and beyond! Whether campers are experienced or new to these sports, Watersports Fanatic pairs fun instructors with a world-class tow boat.
  • Artistic Painting Fanatic
    Ever have the desire to place paint on canvas? With Artistic Painting Fanatic, campers will spend five afternoons with our skilled instructor.
  • Tabletop Adventures
    Make new strategies and stories with this unique option. You’ll get to learn strategic board games and play your part in creative role play games with our leaders and fellow campers. The best part is that this fanatic option has no extra fees! 
  • Tubing Fanatic

Wild Camps

This is an outdoor adventure you don’t want to miss! Wild camps build important core memories through the unforgettable challenge of a canoe trip, the excitement of learning new skills, Bible-based lessons, and the fun of a small camp, all in the beautiful backdrop of Saskatchewan's gorgeous rivers systems. Even if you've never been on a canoe trip before, our trained and experienced guides will train you in paddling and camping, and will help you overcome obstacles, helping you build character that will last a lifetime.

We provide the food, tents, supplies, and canoes; campers are responsible for their personal effects and bedding. Campers must be mentally and physically fit and ready for a challenge, i.e. able to walk at least 3km daily wearing a 20lb-40lb backpack as well as paddle 6-8 hours daily.
