Summer 2023 Adventure Trips

Experience camp in a new way!

Head out on an adventure that you’ll be sure to remember for years to come! 
Hiking, canoeing, fishing, rock climbing, geocaching, and more! 
Bring along a friend and discover the amazing wonders of the Peace Region back country!

Please note that all Adventure Trip participants sleep in tents, enjoy meals over the fire, and spend a majority of their time in the program engaging with the outdoors and all it has to offer. All this happens under the care and supervision of competent and skilled staff. Please pack accordingly. 

What is Adventure Trips?

Adventure Trips offers trips for those who want to experience a “more traditional” type of camping. Meals cooked over the fire, sleeping in tents and lean-to shelters, traveling to your campsite on your own two legs or in a canoe…. this and so much more is Adventure Trips! 
Depending on the trip you choose, you may stay overnight on our main site or out in the bush. Some trips have the same campsite every night while others set up camp each day. 

Each trip is led by a trained and qualified guide, along with other camp staff, and has had a reconnaissance trip done before hand to ensure a safe trip. 

Whether there will be a rock climbing specific trip in 2023 is still yet to be determined.
Some rock climbing may happen in our Adventure Weeks. 

Are you an avid fisher? Have you always wanted to enjoy a week exploring local fishing spots? 
Check out our When Fish Bite program this summer! 

Take on Little Zion and hike out to your campsite for the week! Or join an Adventure Week and take in shorter day hikes in the local area! (Maybe you’ll find a geocahe along the way!)

Join in on one of our canoe trips this summer… or take on both, making for an epic trip you’ll remember for ages to come! Grab a buddy and lets explore the beauty of the Peace & the Pine!

Registration Deadline

Knowing as far in advance as possible if you will be attending a camp is always the best, as it allows us to properly prepare for the camp, however registration will be closed 3 days prior to each camp. This allows us to make time to prepare packs, food, and staff. 

In some cases we may have to cancel a camp should there not be enough registrants, so make sure to bring along a friend to experience the adventure with you! 

Can Parents Come on Trips?

In past years we have had parents join their youth on the trip as participants, but also as leaders!

Some paperwork may need to be filled out if you would like to join the trip, but don't hesitate to reach out to the office for more info and to register to join. 

Does my camper need to have any special skills to come?

Nope! Just an excitement for adventure and a positive attitude! 


Our staff will be there to teach the basic skills camper need to know before the trip starts and will work with campers along the trip to help build on those skills. However if your camper didn't enjoy out-trips on the Moberly Lake site, this may not be the program for them as every night is an out-trip.  

Where do the campers sleep?

Depending on the program the sleeping location (in tents) of the camp is different. 

For Adventure Weeks & When Fish Bite campers sleep at the Moberly Lake site. During the River Expedition and Little Zion, campers sleep out in the bush, working together to make their campsite.

Volunteer for Projects

HOW DO I VOLUNTEER?

There are so many opportunities to volunteer, and so many who come and help us in one way or another. We appreciate all.

Some projects cannot be done while camp sessions are in process. Others can.Our Property Chair is responsible to manage camp property projects.

We may have 2-3 ongoing projects at a time. We have three thoughts regarding volunteers.

  • Volunteers may help with basic upkeep as needed – i.e. mowing lawns, stacking firewood, etc.
  • Volunteers may help with current projects – these are prioritized by the Property Committee.
  • Volunteers may offer to begin another project on the condition that they finish what they start and that they do it to camp standard. What is done well is safer and saves on maintenance in future years.

For each of the above, please let us know by contacting the office. We will either provide the information or pass you on to our Property Chair.
