A Day at Camp Wapiti
We begin with the raising of the flag, along with songs and games to determine who lines up for breakfast first. Between food, fun and learning the morning moves quickly and before you know it the lunch bell is ringing and cabins are plotting the good-natured pranks they will pull on each other with the lunch-time songs.
Once lunch is finished and cleaned up each cabin is off on an adventure of their own for the afternoon. One day a cabin may be hiking through the bush collecting berries and tea leaves, the next they may be enjoying a nature spa with the nature leader or challenging another cabin to slingshot-paintball war. The possibilities are endless and will keep each cabin busy until supper time.
The rest of the evening brings the cabins back together as they play wide area games, enjoy hot cocoa and cookies, and finally gather around the camp fire for songs and stories at the close of the day.
Jr High campers have the unique opportunity of choosing regular camp or the horsemanship program (space is limited to 14 campers so apply early). While the horsemanship campers are very much a part of the regular camp –enjoying meals, wide area games and campfire with the others –when it comes time for chores and cabin time their day looks a little different. Caring for their assigned horse and helping out around the barn. Horsemanship campers get to enjoy trail rides and time in the arena with the endearing Wranglers, who welcome beginners and experienced riders alike. Safety equipment is the responsibility of the parent. This option has limited space so register early and/or contact us about space availability. 780-532-2823

This week is especially designed for our youngest campers, grades 1-3. They will enjoy the whole camp experience of cabins and counsellors from morning to late afternoon, yet sleep at home in their own bed. Campers are dropped off at McLaurin Baptist Church (10913-107 Ave. Grande Prairie ) each morning at 8am and ride a school bus out to camp. At 4pm they are back at the church for pickup. All the parent does is pack them a lunch and drop them off for the day!
